"Growing up Southern is a privilege, really. It's more than where you're born; it's an idea and state of mind that seems imparted at birth. It's more than loving fried chicken, sweet tea, football, and country music. It’s being hospitable, devoted to front porches, magnolias, moon pies, coca-cola... and each other. We don't become Southern - we're born that way." - Unknown

day twenty: write a letter

This will be short and simple.

Instead of writing a letter to someone, I'm going to tell you about a time when I wrote a letter.

The night before I got married I wrote a letter to Spencer. You know the kind. A good, old-fashioned love letter. I gave it to him about an hour before we were married. He loved it.

I wish more people engaged in letter writing. It is rapidly becoming a lost art, but it shouldn't be. Who doesn't love getting mail? And hand-written notes/letters/etc are just so much more personal and meaningful. A challenge for you all: write a letter or note to someone this week and deliver it somehow. You'll love it. I promise.

It is amazing to me how few people actually write letters any more.

I agree-- letter writing is an endangered habit in dire need of rescuing. I took your challenge. I wrote a letter this week {well, besides the usual one that I send out to Josh} and it was richly satisfying.

You've inspired me: I think I need to do a 30 day challenge too. I love seeing where you've taken the prompts. Alyssa, your writing inspires me. That's all there is to it.
