My discovery of a treasure trove of correspondence, much between me and Sarah (tidbits here and here), led one of our most supportive readers to suggest that we all could write more love letters. And, Amber, you are right. I’ve been thinking about your comment for just about three months now. Add to that the fact that things seem a little lonely—boring, even—around these parts lately. So Sarah and I thought it was time for another challenge, of sorts. And with Valentine’s Day just two weeks away, we decided this is the perfect time.
Our latest endeavor is Love it Up.
Here’s how it works:
- Write a love letter on or before Valentine’s Day (Sunday, Feb. 14).
- You can write to anyone—or anything, for that matter. (I found it helpful to write a love letter to a small appliance a few months back.)
- Link to it here (or e-mail it to us if you don’t have a blog and we will find a home for it).
- Add the blog button to your sidebar if you’d like to inspire some of your own readers.
We will reward a winner with some Valentine’s Day appropriate treats.
There are no other rules. You don’t even have to send the letter (but we hope you do). Just spend some time writing about love. Your love. Maybe you will create a memory. Or add to someone else’s future treasure trove.
For inspiration, I share with you a love letter, of sorts. Written to me from Sarah.
Can you do better than that?
