On Love Letters

When was the last time you received a love letter? 
Hmm, I can't really remember either (Valentine's Day doesn't count). 
I'm not terribly good at sending love letters but I do very well (if i may say so) at sending picture messages of poems, quotations and (really terrible) drawings to DPB. At least, he hasn't complained yet...

Anyway, what I really, really, really, really, REALLY wanted to do was draw your attention to the website The World Needs More Love Letters.

Well go on! Click on the link!

It's a brilliant idea and, like so many wonderful ideas, is beautifully simple: once you sign up to the mailing list, you receive a call for love letters. You're given a basic story behind the need for the letter and then... it's up to you. You have free rein to write your little heart out to a total stranger in need of love.
I've just written my first (TWO) letters AND made the cards myself (hmmm, yeeees, that wasn't so pretty... but it's the thought that counts). I can't wait to send them off tomorrow. 

So go on. Spread the love.

And here's some love for you:

Oh Antoinette, yes, please do look at the site! It's such a wonderful idea to send someone a letter supporting them through a difficult time, or just letting them know that they're not alone. I think you should 'casually' suggest to your husband that you love the romance of a well-penned letter :-)
Thanks for your comment!xo
