Love Letters Left Behind

Hello lovely, lovely, awesome people. Isn't love grand? Even more grand is proof that love exists through confessions jotted down in letters. Have you ever stumbled upon a box of romantic love letters that belonged to someone you knew? I once spotted a box of letters that belonged to my mom which were sent to her from my dad while he was in the army. I never read them, and sadly, I believe those letters were lost in a move back in the 1980's. My mom and dad were divorced when I was ten years old, and my dad has since passed away, but I would love to have had those letters passed down to me. But I digress.

I stumbled upon a website the other day called After browsing the site and watching the videos they posted, I felt truly inspired to write my own love letters anonymously to complete strangers.  Yesterday, I wrote my first letter and left it at the grocery store for someone to find. Oh how I wish I had access to a hidden camera to catch the reaction of the person fortunate to open the envelope.

I'm not sure if anyone saw me leave it in the basket. I hope not. 

I wrote another letter today but haven't placed it anywhere yet. Here's today's letter.

So what do you think?  Would you be curious enough to open an envelope that said, "Open Me"?

I encourage you to check out the Global Love Letters website. Maybe it will inpire you as well.

I wish all of you much love and a warm heart.

Update:  Last night at dinner I decided to leave the above letter for our waitress. She was awesome.

I think nobody is able to resist an envelope that says "open me"!

What a wonderful idea. I'm sure it will make someone happy - and I do believe that there are no coincidences, it will be read by the one it is meant for. I couldn't resist opening such an envelope!
