Letter #1

I decided to write my first letter for the handwriting challenge to someone who I have not seen in quite some time. It makes my heart heavy to know it has been so long, but due to distance and lack of money there has been no way for us to catch up in many, many months.

While, I never had a biological sister I was lucky enough to have two friends (one a cousin) who were close enough to be. Penning a letter to my beloved friend and sister felt awesome, liberating. It reminded me so much of all the times we spent writing to each other. If only we could have all the new awesomeness that came with growing up, while keeping all those times where you hang out with your girlfriends, watching movies and drinking LLB (Lemon, Lime and Bitters). How perfect would life be then?

I sent my three page letter on Wednesday and haven’t heard that it’s arrived yet, so I suppose it will get to her tomorrow, I really hope getting it will be as exciting for the recipient as sending it has been for me. I can’t wait to hear that she has it.

I am so exhilarated me that I have already got a list of more than 6 people to write to, with more being added all the time. 

This week’s letter will be to my other sister.

  1. Sounds like fun, I used to write hand written letters a long time ago. Maybe I should start doing it again.

  2. She will love it, I bet you get some return mail too.

  3. @Kelly – Maybe you should join Claire's challenge 🙂
    @Claire – I hope I do get some return mail, I am excited at the thought and have even arranged a little box just in case!
