|NOTE: AUGUST PEN-PAL ASSIGNMENTS WILL BE SENT OUT NEXT WEEK.|
Last November, I set up a Snail Mail Exchange. Within hours of the post being published, emails poured into my inbox with old and new readers eager to participate. Honestly, it made me giddy with delight! Over the past nine months, word has spread about #OFDGOINGPOSTAL and this little social experiment has taken off. Seeing strangers from Melbourne to mid-Missouri connect via card stock and Washi tape makes my heart oh-so happy. Thank you! You've restored my faith in old-fashioned correspondence. I love it!
I wasn't exactly sure how long it would be before the Snail Mail Exchange would run its course. As we get closer to our little guy's arrival in October, I feel it's important that I prioritize some of my to-dos. While it's been a thrill to coordinate #OFDGOINGPOSTAL, I've decided August will be the last month in which I assign pen pals. I say this with a heavy heart, but I feel it's best for the time being. To those of you who have participated with enthusiasm, I appreciate all you've done to spread a little sunshine.
After nine months of colorful card stock and confetti, I think we can all agree that parcels and post will always be best.
