♥ living in your letters.

image via we heart it.

in the hustle and bustle of everyday life

paint my nails or read a good book,
i feel a stirring in my soul to go back

the intimate and personal process of letter writing by

in no time.

with an ever–changing selection of
stationery templates and fonts,
you can make your e–letter uniquely yours,
and with the capacity to send your email
at the click of a button,
you can ensure that your letter
will never carry yesterday's news.
