Everyone loves to get fun mail

The BFF Power of Snail Mail

The BFF Power of Snail Mail

I love the feeling that I get when I receive a letter (read: Not my birthday) in my IRL mailbox.

Especially when that letter wasn’t expected.

As soon as I see it, I get a warm fuzzy feeling in my chest and I can feel it bloom all the way up to my cheeks. ☺️

The first thing I do is try to figure out who it is from and what it could possibly be about.

The thing about real mail is there is no email address or subject line. It’s in these moments where my anticipation is highest, it’s almost better than reading the letter itself.

Anybody has the power to create feelings of happiness, joy and love in somebody else. I think that is pretty incredible.

It only takes a few moments to write to someone you’re thinking about.

Here are a few things, I like to write about:

• my thoughts

• a memory that made me smile

• a compliment or something inspirational 

• a little something about my day and what I’ve been up to.

The hardest part of sending out a letter for me, because I’m lazy, is looking up the address, getting it on the envelope, and walking my envelope out to the mailbox. (I need to work out a better system of keeping my addresses all in one place so I’m not constantly having to search for them.)

Sending surprise mail to your BFFs has the power to change the entire course of their day! 

It could be just the right pick me up at just the right time. It is such an amazing feeling to know that something that took me all of 5-10 minutes can have such a large, positive, immediate impact on the ones who mean the most to me.

Start thinking about who's day you want to impact.

Who do you know that would love to receive something unexpected from you in their mailbox?

Next week I am going to talk about some great time saving hacks you can do to make time to start sending mail to your bestest friends.

The magical paper wonderland that is the National Stationery Show was just this last week. It is where paper people go to geek out for days at a time but before the show stationery companies go all out on their promotional mailers to buyers. Here is a look at all of the mailers I have ever done.
