Birthday request update

For my birthday this year, I made a request to friends and family to send me a letter or note via snail mail.  I have already posted a picture of a day when personal snail mail rivaled junk mail and I’ve had quite a few other great snail mail days since my request.  I’ve responded to almost everyone who sent a letter (Jason and Allison, your replies are on their way, soon!).  Here’s a shot of a pile of outgoing snailmail I sent recently:

It was so much fun to have letters to reply to! To date, I’ve received thirty cards and letters. 

Responding to them all really put a dent in my crazy stationery collection (you may note the Asian beauty military stationery or the Pankunchi stationery that seems to tell a story about three friends–a slice of bread, a loaf of bread and a panda–going on adventures.  I’m not kidding!)

The snail mail I received ran the gamut from touching and sweet to laugh-out-loud funny.  Some did both.  My uncle, taking my request for a “letter or a note” literally, sent me the following:

He’s always been a comedian. 

I’m hoping my snail mail experiment with friends and family isn’t over or just limited to a birthday request.  Some have promised to send a letter at some point in the future (adhering to a birthday timeline was just too much!). 

But snail mail is always appreciated when it arrives.  It has no expiration date.
