So many people these days just send quick emails to thank people for invitations, gifts, etc. (I am also guilty) instead of sending a handwritten note. While it is faster and more convenient, it also misses the more personal touch that a handwritten note has that someone actually took the time to write, put a stamp on it, and send! One of my favorite things to receive is actual letters and cards in the mail from friends and family, and it happens far too often now.
There are so many beautiful and personal options when it comes to stationary, there really is no excuse! For myself I prefer the monogrammed stationary, which adds the most personal touch - but there are so many with gorgeous patterns, colors and finishes! It has become (almost) as fun to shop for as clothes!
