Surely, you’ve all seen the commercials by now. People all around the globe are sending in their DNA samples to find out who they really are. The cool folks at AncestryDNA™ were kind enough to gift me not one, but two AncestryDNA test kits!
Have you stamped and sent your holiday cards yet? If not, you’ve still got some time!
To write is human, to receive a letter: Devine! – Susan Lendroth
In an age where folks incessantly check their phones and tablets for new messages and where “likes” are the golden stamps of approval, this old soul still believes in the good old-fashioned art of putting pen to paper. As someone who frequents stationery stores, has an address book and actually buys stamps, I can’t recommend letter writing enough. It’s a surprisingly cathartic way to show someone you care and hey, why should phone bills and take-out menus dominate our mailboxes anyways? Spare 49 cents and send a note that’s more than 140 characters to someone you love. It’ll probably be the cheapest thing you do all day.
