Kids Like to Write Too...

Yes, it's true... kids like to write letters too!

It was one of those know.... dark, misty evenings.  And she came to me and asked for a candle.  "Why?" I asked.  She proceeded to tell me that she wanted  to write a letter.  Ahhhh....she was setting the mood for a good little letter writing session!  So I  naturally complied and lit the candles and off to work she went.   You can see the pleasure  and intensity in which she is applying herself to the task.  And of course, her little pen pals  enjoy original artwork with her letters.  It wasn't long before her big brother jumped in on the action too...ha ha...grandma had sent her a $1 in her last letter...he thought he might just try his luck and write a letter to grandma too.  No matter.  This is a scene I will always treasure!

When was the last time you wrote by candlelight?  It is an experience that is unmatched!  Give it a try ...especially as we head into the winter months.  You'll be glad you did!

"Everybody allows that the talent of writing agreeable letters is peculiarly female."
--Jane Austen, Northanger Abbey

Write Letters.
Write Often.
