Going Postal for a Small Town Boy in a Big, Big City
Hopefully our handwritten love can handle the bright lights
Left: 2:07pm, on its way to NYC
We’ve all been there.
A new city. A fresh start. A chance to flip a page and start all over. Possibility and the world at our very heels.
You can practically smell it in the air these days. The end of August, as she rolls into September with leaves in her hair, is known for the fresh start that sits upon the tops of suitcases being shuffled into dorm rooms and notebooks opening for the very first time.
This letter is heading off today to reach the brand new mailbox of the one who requested it in advance last month: a college freshman starting Chapter One in New York City. Oh, how we adore christening a mailbox!
We’re wishing him well as he takes his first big bite out of the Big Apple and also sending along some of our best advice we’ve gathered from living in NYC.
One of our personal favs:
Nailing down coffee dates (even if it is just with laptop & books) at:
Bourbon Coffee @BourbonCoffeeNY
The Grey Dog Cafe
Cafe Grumpy @cafegrumpy
Do you know someone in your life who could use a love letter?
Maybe he is starting college as well, or maybe she is beginning her senior year? Let us know! We would love to send a handwritten letter their way.
Please send all requests to email@example.com or send your own note to someone just starting off college to PO Box 2061, North Haven CT, 06473. We will make sure it reaches the right pair of hands.
