Write Me A Letter...

Do you remember a time when computers didn't exist? Cell phones were something we barely even knew about. Text messages? Huh..Yeah those were times that most of us don't remember since we have grown up with technology all around us.

One press of a button and we can email, pay bills, get concert tickets and the list goes on.

What about the times before cell phones and technology? People use to talk face to face and meet us to connect. People even wrote letters, yes real letters.

Relationships use to thrive on lovers sending emotional heartfelt letters professing their love written in their own handwriting. I would have loved writing a letter to my love, expressing my feelings and my desires in the pages. There is still something romantic about writing a letter.

I think now with the abundance of technology we have we've lost touch with the simple  things. People rarely now take the time to write a personal letter, or send a a card.

Everything is now emails, text messages, social networks and more..I miss getting a card or a letter in the mail. I try to still write letters and send cards to people as an extra thank you or to brighten up their day.

I find doing that is that little personal touch and most people don't expect to get them. I hate texting people to say Happy Birthday because something gets lost in the sentiment of a text.

So tell me, do you like getting cards and letters in the mail? Do you still write letters and or cards?

Stay naughty,


  1. Good post Savannah, and as you probably know, I'm a fan of writing letters and that's why my current book has a story about it.

    I still write letters, cards, and notes when I can for special occasions.


  2. Eden, thank you for taking the time to stop by. I do know and think it is fantastic that you still do all of the stuff. There is just something special about communicating in all those different forms.

  3. I love writing letters but no one seem to reply to them...How sad is that?

    1. Tigra, well people are lazy these days. They are so comfy with technology they don't want to take the time to do it.

  4. Great post Savannah

    I'm one of the old timers that remembers when there wasn't cell phones and all that you could do with them.

    I love receiving cards, letters and notes for any reason, or just to say HI. Honestly, though, I can't remember the last time I actually got a letter.

    I think I like sending cards and notes more than receiving them. Don't get me wrong...I LOVE receiving them, but sending one makes me feel all mushy in a good way.

    1. Casey, thank you so much for taking time to stop over. Oh I know how you feel. I love to do that as well. To know you can put a smile on someones face with a card means so much to me.

  5. I've kept every letter my husband wrote me during my college days. I do think that people may write more now that they feel "safely" behind text messages and email.

    1. Brinda, thank you for taking time to visit me here. I think that is so sweet you still have the letters. They are romantic and special to you. They are memories. Even with email and text there is still something missing.
