And then I happened upon this post, which got me kind of excited.
This is the company she speaks of in her post, and I think it's just a brilliant idea (if a tad bit expensive).
The nostalgic, ephemera-loving part of me really likes the idea of a telegram being sent in present day when we have the internets to connect us at the touch of a fingertip. It got me thinking about the last time i wrote a letter or sent a postcard. I think it must have been years ago when I was living in France or Florida (bit of a difference between those two locations and lifestyles . . .). How many penmanships of your loved ones would you recognize today? Would friends and family know a letter was from you just from seeing the handwriting in the address?
I realize letter writing is far different from telegram sending, but just the same . . .
Would you ever send a telegram or write a letter to a friend/family member instead of shooting off an email or a text message?
