Three years ago we hosted a love letter link-up. It’s time for a reprise, don’t you think?
Here’s how it works:
- Write a love letter on or before Valentine’s Day (Thursday, Feb. 14).
- You can write to anyone—or anything, for that matter. (I once found it helpful to write a love letter to a small appliance.) (Full disclosure: The appliance has since moved on to the great wasteland and has been replaced by a bigger, better model.) (This is not a metaphor for anything. Just the facts.)
- Link to it here (or e-mail it to us if you don’t have a blog (or want to be anonymous), and we will find a home for it).
- Add the blog button (look! over there! to the left!) to your own blog 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. Then share it with us. (It would be nice if you’d read and comment on other linked posts. You know, spread the love?) (But this isn’t one of those crazy Five for Five linkups where Sarah and I go traipsing around the Internet for days on end reading all of your great writing and getting inspired. Maybe another time. For now, we just want to Love It Up.)
For inspiration, I share with you a love letter, of sorts. Written to me from Sarah approximately 30 years ago. (My apologies to those of you who’ve seen this already. It really is a treasure, though. And worth sharing again.)
