Do you remember a time when we wrote letters instead of texting? I do. And it was glorious. I hope you’ll join me in the Letter Writing Challenge and write one letter a month to someone you care about. Each month, I’ll have free printable stationery and envelope templates, plus fun prompts and cute ideas for your letters. I hope you’ll sign up for the Letter Writing Challenge here. If you don’t want to sign up, you can check back here on the first of every month for new printable stationery and participate on your own!
I used to write tons of letters. And I have a notebok full of letters and cards I’ve received over the years. But receiving a letter is a rare treat these days, and one I treasure.
On the flip side, taking the time to sit down and write a letter is also a rare treat. There’s just something therapeutic about putting it down on paper, you know what I mean?
Alzheimer’s is a real beast, y’all. It’s the worst thing. Yet, she remembers who I am. She can still read. She still likes to get mail. I love to send her letters. The thing is, I don’t send them nearly enough. Lately I’ve tried sending them once a month, and even that can be hard.
So I’m challenging myself to send one letter a month to my grandmother in Oregon. And while I’m at it, I’m going to send one a month to my BFF, also in Oregon (and the only other person I occasionally still write to – we’ve been sending each other notes since the sixth grade!).
I want to challenge you to do the same.
Pick a person, or pick several people. Send one letter a month. That’s it! Just one simple letter.
Every month, you’ll find a new printable stationery and envelope template here, on this blog.
