We *heart* Snail Mail

Long live the hand-written, postage stamped letter. Really and truly. There is nothing quite like sitting down and sharing your whozits and whatzits through a hand scrawled note, except maybe to receive one.

My Grandma and Grandpa have kept in frequent contact by letter throughout my life, and I have kept every one.

Today, Levi found something special in the mailbox from his Grandma and Grandpa. It reminded me of how excited I always was to find something in the mail addressed to me.
P.S Mom, this is still true of me ;)

The perfect letter for a little one. She replaced familiar faces and activities with easily identifiable photos, so that Levi would be able to understand and "read" his letter.

Thanks Grandma!


  1. Awww he looks so cute. I have a much easier time than Grandma did, I just cut and paste on my computer, she actually had to cut and paste out of magazines and catalogues. Love you. ♥♥♥

  2. I agree Janie!
    I use to write back and forth with my Granny. She has been gone for many years, but I still have every letter and treasure them.

  3. Just beautiful. I am a firm believer in 'snail mail'. And what clever grands...

    Blessings, Debbie
