Hello my friends! We are smack-dab in the middle of International Letter Writing Week and we are off to a good start! I’ve had the joy of sending numerous birthday cards this week as well as anniversary cards. I’ve sent some notes too. How about you? Have you embraced ILWW and sent a card/letter a day?
There is so much joy to be found in sending a smile through the post. As your friend or relative opens their mail box you know it brightens their day to find something other than a bill or advertisement.
And none will hear the postman’s knock~W.H. Auden
Without a quickening of the heart.
For who can bear to feel himself forgotten?
Naomi from Naomi loves, the blogger that introduced me to ILWW, had a lovely post at the beginning of the week to launch into ILWW, Do you have a pen? It’s time for #lettersforloneliness! Here she encourages and inspires this beautiful art. We do live in some lonely times, despite constant connection at our fingertips at any hour. It’s a shallow connection most of the time though. She created #lettersforloneliness to bring awareness to this lonely time we live in and inspire the lost art of what some are calling “vintage social media”. (More on that later.)
Check out her blog and her free resources (free just for ILWWeek though) about letter writing. It’s worth the time.
Since we are in the midst of the big International Letter Writing Week I thought I’d remind you about my printable perpetual calendar to keep track of important dates like birthdays and anniversaries. It is a great place to have all your information in one place! Check it out!

Have a blessed week, my joys! May your mailboxes be filled with joy!
Addendum: If you need some more ideas on who to send mail to this week or anytime, I just came across this awesome website: The World Needs More Love Letters. They do a monthly mail request of people who are in need of some love sent through the mail. Check it out.
