    Pen Pals Not Key Pals...

    I love to write letters, I just wish I had a more interesting life to write about. My letters are full of hopes, dreams, well wishes and love, though.... My circle is welcome to send me their address anytime. :)

    There Is Something About A Handwritten Letter

    It is like receiving a gift, a lovely surprise when you check the mail box which usually only contains bills or official letters. I guess it is a gift in a way. Someone has taken the time to sit down and write the long way, willing to spend the time with you. You can read so much...
