Lately, trends have shown that handwritten correspondence is making a comeback. My question is: when did it ever go away? For me, there is nothing like a beautifully illustrated card filled with the actual penmanship of a loved one to cure all that ails me. To be honest, I even like handwritten notes from strangers and have been known to snatch up old postcards written in faded ink from years past. I digress. Do yourself a favor this year and give the chance to give someone a tangible memory. Find a fantastic card and write them a love letter. Whether it be to a partner, a family member, or a colleague, give the gift of love.
