In a fast paced and instant communication world, these letters are more than just pretty looks for me. It's the feeling of it being a lost art. Now seeming to be an ancient way to communicate these letters are a symbol of more simple times.
Oh, but they are beautiful....
It's fun to fantasize about what they say! If you could find out would you want to know?
Last night me and my fiance had a little dinner party for Justine and Camille the French students staying with my Mother. They were more than kind to read the letters and translate them for us. The anticipation while they were reading the letters was intense. When they laughed, I laughed with excitement. I couldn't wait to find out!
While I was hoping for a Romeo and Juliet letter I feel I got something equally exciting...
a baby announcement! The baby's arrival was 12-3-30.
There was also a letter from a bride to be asking her fiances parents to come a couple days before their wedding so she could meet them. His parents lived far far away.
A letter from a son to his father letting him know he received the book his father had sent and an important letter about how the towns baker died. The girls explained just how important a baker is to a small town in France.
My sister in law suggest that i find relatives to these letters and hand deliver them to their families. Could you imagine? What an adventure that would be.
