The Joys of Snail Mail

Yesterday I got a little unexpected surprise in my mailbox.

My friend, Ann, who I have gotten reacquainted with over the last couple of years but had been my across the street neighbor growing up, sent me this:
I loved this for so many reasons.  First of all, I have always loved mail.  Even still to this day, I look forward to checking my mailbox daily.  It's usually just bills or junk mail.  It's so rarely just a note from a friend.  These days, we get emails-- mainly texts. Mail is such a thing of the past it seems. But every once in a while, something like this happens.  And it feels like so much more of an event than email or text ever could!

Also, I love that it was just a quick but sweet gesture, that showed me, someone thought of me. 

And lastly- VINTAGE JEWELRY- that in and of itself always, always makes me happy.

Snail mail.  It's a powerful thing. Let's bring it back into our lives a little!
