Precious things/6 Modern love letters

This red envelope holds a transcript of all the SMS messages Mr. C sent me when we first started seeing each other. Yes they are both cute and corny and sometimes ridiculously over the top.
But each one of them is a little piece of history. I look back on what was written and the words make me smile.

The purpose of this post series is to show you some of the things that surround me. This isn't about bragging in the sense of: look how many pretty expensive things I have. All of these items are important to me out of various reasons. What they all have in common is that they have come to define me and my life in some significant way. In the end it's all about the story. And I love a good story.


  1. So romantic - I love that. I guess you printed them out? A great idea.

  2. Kathy: back 'in the olden' days printing wasn't an option, because my phone didn't have a bluetooth connection. These were all transcribed by hand. I also included the date and time of each text. I always meant to write them in a special noteboook, but then I got used to the idea of storing them in an envelope.

  3. That is so sweet.

  4. Mandy: Thanks and a big hug! I guess I'm just a corny old sop ;-)
