recent





Here are a few recent pics (sorry I'm so terrible at keeping this updated folks!) But the mysterious cloaked figure is in fact my husband looking like the Super Geek he most DEFINITELY is NOT (the cloak belongs to my friend Ian the bearded fellow holding his stuffed Darth Vader toy) and there is Kris and Porter in the same play area Sam's playing and posing in. :D

A Month of Letters! (a goal and a challenge)

A Month of Letters

I have always loved getting letters. I am also old enough to remember the days of paper letters sent “Snail Mail”. I wrote to my friends in other parts of the globe and received in return a tangible hand written missive. Those days seem long ago. With modern technology like emailing, text and instant messaging the art of the paper letter seems to have all but disappeared from most of our lives.
Which is why I'm doing this. I want to reconnect with the people I care about in a real and genuine way. How often have I dashed off a quick note in email or FaceBook message, something brief and riddled with net speak like “LOL” poor English like “gunna” and “ya know?” I'm sure the notes were appreciated, but how much more would a real letter be?
So this is me trying to single-handedly re-ignite the letter writing fire by this my challenge!

The Challenge:
To write (and SEND) at least one real honest to goodness letter every day for 30 days. I had thought to insist they all be paper letters sent snail mail but lets be honest who has that kind of time? There's reason why back in the day I WROTE a lot of letters but very few actually made it through the laborious process of finding its way into an envelope that was properly addressed AND stamped and then mailed. So email is fine, heck even text messaging or Instant messaging I suppose so long as it starts out with the persons name or even “Dear so and so” and ends with “Sincerely” or some other nice way of closing it and your name. I will also say it should be at LEAST two paragraphs and no

“Dear so and so,

I wanted to write you a letter, so I am.

Did you know I really like waffles?

Sincerely,
Me”


Does NOT count, a paragraph by my definitions is at least a handful of complete sentences strung together. :D

That's it, write letters to people you know well or not so well, family and friends, and even friends of friends. Can't think of anyone to write? You could write a solider http://www.soldiersangels.org/ or ask for recommendations from people you DO know so you could find yourself a new pen-pal! Be creative, the point is to connect with others through the power of letter writing.

Feel free to send me letters you're especially proud of, and I may post some or parts from some of the ones I write. Also I know its not the 1st of the month which would probably make this easier but heck, if I put this off I may not do it. So I'll start now, on the 21st of September my Month of Letters!

Sammy wearing a princess dress we made together out of scraps of fabric, an old tshirt and some ribbon (not a stitch of sewing we're so crafty). Porter and Sam playing, Kris all skinny and Sam and I smiling. All pics taken with Samantha's digital camera cause I dropped mine on my face and broke it! Hope we get some tax return money so I can buy a new one. Enjoy!
