A year ago I sat next to him spilling my heart out
I want to connect with people, I want to do something that will bring others together
I want to create a community, see people smile
I had no idea what this looked like, but he sat there and listened
I bounced ideas off of him
My love for writing, receiving real mail, my collection of postcards from every place I travel
Slowly it all wove itself into a project
Strangers coming together to send mail to one another
Real mail, you know the kind that actually travels through the post office
Individuals showing up with pen in hand and spilling their heart on the page
And then sharing these words with someone they may not know
Connections blooming from a simple post card
I knew I wanted to make it easy
Something any one could do
And with all that the Love notes Post Card Project was born
A year ago I launched the very first round and had no idea what to expect
Would people sign up?
Would this actually work?
My goodness I was blown away
People did actually sign up, from all over the world in fact
My heart burst open
It has been such a pleasure to host this project
To watch it unfold and evolve
And to see the connections and friendships that have formed
I am grateful for each individual who has taken the leap and been a part of it
Who so willingly put their heart on the paper and shared it with the world
It is a true blessing
The world could always use more sunshine and smiles
And together we are doing that
One post card at a time

As you walk this journey through life
Your lungs will expand
Your heart will fill with joy
You will see through new eyes
The beauty that surrounds you
Settle into your pace
Do not rush at someone eles's pace
Find your rythm
Listen to the sound of your breathe
Seek out the words that are calling you

It was a year ago that I hosted the very first Love Notes Post Card project. When I started this project I had no idea the journey it would take me on and I am so grateful to be getting ready for another fantastic round. We would love for YOU to be a part of it. Head on over to HERE to sign up!
The Love Notes Post Card project gives you the opportunity to send and receive mail, real mail. When was the last time you opened your mailbox and was delighted by what was inside? The Post Card Project changes that by matching you up with someone for three weeks of postcard writing and sending fun.
How it works:
The Love Notes Post Card Project will run for three weeks :: June 16th - July 6th.
* Each Sunday you will receive a writing prompt delivered to your inbox
* Take time to respond to the writing prompt on a post card
* Before the week ends drop your post card in the mail for your fellow love note participant who you are paired up with, and be surprised the day a post card arrives for you
It is as simple as that.
I choose postcards for this project because of there small size and less intimidating writing space. You only need to write a few sentences. Postcards can be bought, made, or you can even send a notecard if you do not have a postcard.
You will be paired up with a fellow Love Note participant who will be sending love notes your way. Unfortunately I cannot 100% guarantee they will send out their postcards, but my hope in my heart is that they do.
Life flies by at warp speed sometimes. Seldom do we take the time to slow down, savor the moment, and reflect on what is really happening in our world. The Love Notes Post Card Project invites you to pause, sink into the moment, and write words from the heart ~ on an actual piece of paper. Words that will brighten someones day and spread sunshine to all the hands it passes through.
Won't you join us?
If this sounds like something you are interested in, head on over to HERE to sign up.
Then between June 14th and June 15th you will receive and email from firstname.lastname@example.org with the name of the person you are paired up with. On June 16th you will receive your first writing prompt.
If you have any questions about the project please feel free to email me at email@example.com
Please note if you have signed up for previous Post Card Projects you will need to sign up again to get in on this round.
I am really looking forward to watching all of this unfold and hope that YOU will be a part of it.

You are on a journey
And there are times you may feel isolated
Lost on your path
But know that no matter where you stand
How afraid you are
How lonely you may feel
Know that you are not alone
You are never alone
There is always someone
Ready to take your hand
Willing to guide you home
Do not be fearful of reaching out
Asking for help
Speaking from the heart
Leaning on others
We are not meant to do it alone
There are others out there just like you
When we come together
We are stronger, braver, wiser
Together stand together along the shore
Look out to the horizon
And step forward, together
