handwritten letters

handwritten letters

handwritten by mary kate mcdevitt

writing handwritten letters is a practice that i have intentionally been trying to increase in my life (that’s one reason why i love the tiny post office giveaway so much). i wrote two letters this week and also received the sweetest letter from my grandmother in the mail (grandmomma, if you’re reading this- thank you! it made my day). i’m afraid it’s becoming a lost art, but we all have to admit that opening our mailbox to find a special piece of snail mail truly makes us feel special. today, i encourage you to sit down and take the time to hand-write a letter to someone special in your life. and remember, you should never hold back life-giving words to those you love.  xox, bonnie

i am simply in love with the way kari herer has combined traditional pen and ink art with the soft petals of roses and magnolias. it’s just perfectly feminine, don’t you think?
