also, one of my very best friends is about to go travelling for a year, so as a little going away present i bought her this set from paperchase so that we can keep in touch in a more interesting way than facebook!
another recent pen pal is my granddad, and seeing how neatly and naturally he writes makes me realise how much i've come to depend on a keyboard. i used to write everything by hand at school, and i didn't realise how much i missed it- minus the hand cramp!
i still, (and probably always will) maintain that the feeling of coming home to exciting post is one of the best feelings ever, and it's so nice to keep in touch with people in such a personal way.
if you're a letter writer, let me know! i'd love to hear from other snail mail fans and also find out about the best places for pretty letter sets :)
