Pen Pal

I love getting mail.  Somehow, receiving an email is just not quite the same as a good old-fashioned, stamped letter delivered to your home.  I'm looking forward to participating in the pen-pal project, organized by the lovely Elizabeth of E Tells Tales.  

Elizabeth matched everyone participating according to age, similar interests, and a few answered questions, and voila - I have a pen pal!  I've had a few pen pals in my day, but not since I was a kid, so I'm excited about a new correspondence with a blogger from afar.  I'm responsible for writing the first letter and we'll see how it goes from here!

How fun! I too love getting letters. My grandmother was insistent that I write letters all the time as a child and had many pen pals. It was how she and my grandfather met and got to know each other. I still write letters but not as much as I used too, maybe I need to change that!
Have fun with your penal, it's always so exciting hearing about a place far away through someone else's eyes.

I am a big fan of writing letters. My cousin and I have been writing each other since we were 7 and are still going strong. It's amazing that we've been able to keep it up this long
