Floral card: Rifle Paper Co.
Letter writing has been something I’ve loved since I could first wield a pencil as a kid. Since I moved across the country at age eight, I had friends back at home that I wanted to keep in contact with. I remember my mom telling me I should write them letters so that we could stay friends over the years, so as an eight-year-old, I began writing to a few friends from home. Fast-forward 15 years, and today you’ll still find me writing letters and notes!
About a year ago I came across the prettiest and most inspiring Instagram account I had ever seen, and it belonged to Hayley Solano! Her whole aesthetic was so romantic and beautiful, and I was smitten with it. I also discovered the amazing songs that she writes and records, and couldn’t stop listening to them! We quickly realized through Instagram that we had very similar taste and shared a love of things like music, Anthropologie browsing, embroidery, and tea parties. She was nice enough to send me a lovely letter in the mail, and since then we’ve written and Snapchatted back-and-forth! It’s been so fun to become friends through the online world and through letter writing, even though we’ve never met! There’s something so magical about putting thoughts down in a letter and sending it off.
Since we are collaborating today, we thought it would be fun to share some of our favorite bits of stationary with you guys!
