At school, I hardly ever got mail, but any time I was in the student center, I had to check. By the end of the semester, my best friends started sending me mail every couple of days so that I would have some every time I checked. Then, they started stocking my mailbox, leaving 20 notes in there at once so that I could take some out every time I checked.

Now that I'm home, getting mail means more than it ever has. Today I got a postcard from some friends overseas. I love it.

A few weeks ago, I got a package in the mail. I had received strict instructions to make a phone call before I opened it.

So I did. I tore open the package and saw the single most beautiful thing I have ever seen in my life...

Yep, that's right! A letter for every single day. Some days, I even get to open two or three. And there are a few extras for days that I am especially missing them so that I can open an extra one.

This is why I have the best friends in the world. They know that I love opening mail, and so they made sure that I would have some for every single day. It's beautiful :)

First of all, thank you so much for your sweet comment on my blog! It means so much to me! I left you a response, but I was just thinking that you may not see it. To answer your question, I use a Nikon N55. It's a film camera and I love it!

I love your blog and I love this post! I feel the exact same way about mail. I love receiving mail, and I love sending is. That package you received is so sweet. Isn't it funny how simple things like letters in the mail can mean so much to a person? I wish that people sent more snail mail and fewer emails and text messages. It's just a little more personal, you know?
