New Notecards

foxy stationeryMerry Christmas to me! My daughter gave me “foxy” new notecards, perfect for sending letters to her at college.

I gave her critter cards for her birthday to take with her to college. ONE (coincidentally, a fox) has made its way back to me so far…

Still, I had years of receiving letters in our pre-email era. In today’s electronically-linked world, this may be her only chance of mail on a regular basis.

    I have probably already mentioned this but my mom saved all my letters home and I saved her letters to me – starting when I went away to college. I now have them collected in notebooks. And, I am slowly going back over them. They are a true treasure.

    As for the card you got from your daughter – “what does the fox say?” 🙂

    My mother and I exchanged letters when I was in college, and later when my husband and I were away from home. My father would add a single sentence as a P.S. I wish I’d saved all those letters to read again. My mother said she hated to throw away my letters, but in one of their moves she had to. I miss getting real mail.
