Letter number two

Today's letter, as mentioned earlier, was to my friend Kristin. We were BFFs in elementary school and junior high, then lost touch in high school. I've only seen her once or twice since about 1996, at least until our mothers conspired up a surprise visit when we were at home in Norway last Christmas. We exchanged addresses then, but it took me almost 8 months to get a letter together. This is one of the letters that I have been meaning to write for a long time, and it feels good to finally have done it. It will be interesting to see if this reconnects me with an old friend or not.

On another note (oh ho ho!), if any of you are feeling it for some letter writing, but don't quite know how to go about this ancient art, I did a little research on your behalf:

and last, but not least: How to Write a Letter


  1. I'm so excited about your project! I'm kind of living vicariously through you; hope you don't mind. And I'm excited that two of my suggestions made it on your list! I'll have to see if I can think of some more; 52 weeks is a lot to fill up!

  2. There were a lot of things on your list that I wanted to do (and probably will!), I'm just not sure if I can stretch some of them out for an entire week. My mum has requested a cook book for Christmas, so I might end up using blurb.com to do that. I've wanted to send in a card to postsecret.com for a while too, so maybe we should do that! :)
