Here’s the truth: back in the day, I used to be a letter writer. You, too? I wrote letters to my girlfriends in the summer, telling them how much I missed them if one of us was away. If I had a crush on a boy, I wrote a sweet mushy note — in my handwriting! — and sealed it an envelope.
Nowadays, when I send a sweet message, it’s by text. Do you relate?
So, last night, the Love Letter Squad (Janet Gallin and Tresa Eyres) invited me to their workshop in San Francisco: “Write a letter…. change a life.” (Note: The number of men who attended this workshop blew me away. Go guys!)
And I’m inspired. As much I love chocolate and lingerie, nothing compares to getting a love letter. You can’t duplicate it like a CD. It’s the most intimate, one-of-a-kind gift you can give someone. A love letter is not something that you might recycle.
Moreover, a love letter does NOT have to be romantic: you can appreciate a parent, child, friend, teacher, public figure — even someone in your life in need of an apology or forgiveness. And who says you can’t write a love letter to YOURSELF?
With Valentine’s Day approaching, I want to encourage YOU to write a love letter. Here’s your chance.
What: I’m hosting a Cardstore.com Valentine’s Twitter Party!
Why: Let’s talk LOVE. If you’re dating someone, will you write a love letter? I can’t wait to share my tips! (This goes for writing a letter to your kid, your friend, your parent..)
If you’re going solo on Valentine’s Day, let’s hear how you’re gonna treat yourself!
When: Thurs., Feb. 4th 4 – 5 p.m. PST
Where: on Twitter. It’s easy: you just need a Twitter account. The night of the party, enter #CSParty at the end of each of your Tweets.
How: Follow the #CSParty hashtag (You can use services like TweetChat or TweetGrid to follow the conversation)
Here’s a list of all the great prizes you can win:
