I really miss the classic mailing and writing letters!Emails dont feel the same.With letters you HAD to put effort in a way, and you d care for the paper and the pen and it was all more poetic..Ooh old times!

I love hand written letters, I used to have loads of pen pals when I was younger (before the days of e-mails and the internet). I still wish I could have a penpal though so I could use pretty stationary and send cute gifts (and recieve them).
