I have always been a HUGE fan of ye olde snail mail. Sending and receiving to be honest. When I was 8 I had my first pen pal, and as I got older in the era that didn’t have email I had several friends I would keep in touch with through the mail. It was thrilling as a kid and I must say, as an adult there is nothing like digging through a pile of bills and flyers and getting mail that is addressed to you personally. Not ‘Dear Occupant’ or the like.
Christmas is the best time of year for mail fans. I have always sent cards, but the past two years I have sent extra cute ones that have my little muffin on them. Some people complain that getting Christmas letters from friends/family detailing what they have been up to are tedious or narcissistic, but I love them! I really enjoy hearing what people are up to–maybe I am just nosy?! It is still early in the season but so far we have received three cards, which are proudly displayed on our mantle (wait we don’t have a mantle….) on our hutch…doesn’t have the same ring to it though!
