He brings me postcards from across the World, handmade cards, letters on beautiful stationery, boxes of the best candy ever (Haribo Sour Strawbs), and birthday surprises.

|Birthday goodies from my lovely sister!|
He also lets me send postcards, letters, and parcels to friends and family that are further away than I would like.
I think I like sending real letters because people only expect bills and junk mail in their mailbox, which means a proper, handwritten letter comes as a pleasant surprise.
And although Canada Post is sometimes a little unreliable (a handful of letters have gone undelivered and I'm still waiting on a birthday card or two), how can you not love something that enables you to wholeheartedly tell the ones you love that you care about them?

A little while ago I received a letter from a friend with this incredibly fitting quotation:
"the human art, which owes its origins
in the love of friends"
- Virginia Woolf on letter writing
So take out your writing pad, grab an envelope, and pick up a stamp, and let a friend know that you're thinking about them.
