Snail Mail

When I was a kid, I had a pen pal. I had met the girl while on vacation in the Virgin Islands and she lived in New Mexico which I thought was SO exotic. 

Having a pen pal was awesome. I remember coming home from school to find a letter addressed to me and I was beyond excited. 

I am now (very recently) 26 (eep) and I want another pen pal! I realize people don't really do this any more because there is e-mail and all other sorts of technologies so that I can instantly get a message from anyone, anywhere. But I want the excitement of letters. I want the excitement of one in the mailbox. And the excitement of writing on cute stationery. 

I don't know about y'all but I am so sick of screens. Sick of computer screens. Sick of phone screens. Sick of TV screens. 

Yes, I realize I sound like someone from a completely different generation. But they run our lives now. Literally.

Who else misses snail mail? Anyone else sick of screens? 

Who would love to open their mailbox to something other than bills, junk and credit card offers?
