The other day, I received a note from an old friend in the mail. Just to say hello, no reason at all. It was such a nice little surprise! During the holidays, we expect to open our mailboxes and find wishes from friends and family. But during the rest of the year, little handwritten notes have become a lost art. I remember being little and the thrill that came with getting something in the mail, addressed just to me. I'm totally guilty of writing an email instead of actually sending a thank you note. This year, I plan to make a real effort to actually send a note through the mail. What an easy way to make someone's day!
