Lovely Letters | December 2014

Happy holidays everyone! This month I’m super excited to co-host the Lovely Letters Snail Mail program with Esther.

What is Lovely Letters Snail Mail?

It’s basically a pen pal program where you get to know other bloggers. We will pair you with another blogger and then y’all can get to know each other through email or social media. You’ll then mail them a small package according to the month’s theme. Every month there’s a different theme. For example, last month’s theme was “gratitude”. This is a great program to meet other bloggers.

For December, instead of having a theme to send a package, we just wrote a handwritten card to our pen pal and send an extra card for them to give to someone else. I love paper goods and checking out different stationary and cards so I thought this idea was great! I got paired with lovely Ashley. She’s going to school in Sacramento and will be graduating next year from college! How exciting! I have to admit though that I was guilty of not being as responsive to my emails this month due to travels and the holidays and she was busy studying for finals.
