One summer when my friend Mary was away at camp, working as a counselor, I was determined to be the best pen pal ever.  I started scribbling the initials “BPPE” in the return address space on every piece of mail I sent her, just to really drive home my point.  I vowed to send her one piece of mail a day for the entire summer, sending out my envelope from Sunday along with Monday’s letter each week. 

Completing my daily mail sending in project BPPE that summer was one of the first times I completed a long-term creative project and it harvested a love for sending little bits of happiness via post to my friends across the country. How wonderful that coming home to a simple unexpected envelope in the mailbox  can have such a positive impact on someone’s day. 

Celebrate Snail Mail Activity: Write a letter to a friend.  Spend the $0.46 on a stamp and send a little bit of brightness to a friend who isn’t near.

    Love this! “Write 15 snail mail letters to friends” is on my 101 list. I’m about halfway through my 1001 days and I haven’t written A SINGLE ONE! Bad, bad Emily! Thank you for the reminder and encouragement. Is there anything better than receiving mail? I think not.
