We hosted an Instagram Flash Mob to Spread Thoughtfulness

Today we created a little Instagram Flash Mob magic to spread thoughtfulness with the handwritten word. We joined forces with 12 other creative businesses to each write a Think of you Often card and share on Instagram how we intended to use it. It was our hope to, in a small way, collectively inspire you to reach out and connect. 

Included below is a round up of some of the goodness that went out into the world.

 "I have now attained the true art of letter-writing, which we are always told, is to express on paper exactly what one would say to the same person by word of mouth." -JaneAusten || we talk all the time--on the phone, through emails, and texts--but since we live so far apart it's rarely, if ever, in person. Instead, we turn to the post, the next best thing to being there. No names for now, this letter is still a surprise. The best kind of correspondence is, after all, unexpected. -  @kchysmith

 I'm taking it slow this long weekend & writing a few "just because" letters. Let's all spread thoughtfulness with the handwritten word. -  @send_more_mail
