I'm not one for writing love letters but thankfully the husband is, he's the true romantic in our family. This is a great idea I would love to have one written in this style and then have it blown up for wall art in our bedroom.

Enjoy your week Elizabeth!

My husband and I have exchanged many letters while he was gone for extended periods before email became so widely available. The one true love letter I received from him was written in French inviting me to meet him in Paris for Valentines Day in 2001- guess we are long overdue! Thanks for such a wonderful source and the letters you show here are an amazing reminder!

I have some love letters my grandfather wrote to my gran during the war - they are beautiful!

Being an Aries I am reluctant to let anyone know how I truly feel - don't want to seem vulnerable.

I have saved all of the love letters that Hubby wrote to me before we were married. I try to read them every year on our anniversary. They are so dear to me...

Those types of letters, to me, are rather private. I don't even like it when they blow up famous people's (like Napoleon's) inner feelings.

Gorgeous and so romantic. I've been trying my hand at calligraphy, but I have a loooong way to go before I get even close to Bryn's level of skill! I have to admit that I send far more texts today than love letters!
Happy Monday, Elizabeth!! XO

I love this idea..and support anything that promotes writing vs. texting!! To me nothing sends the message quite as beautifully as a handwritten note of any kind. I am so happy to see its still being done!

Love the calligraphy and wish I could wield the pen so beautifully!

Aah do people really write letters like those anymore? I feel like today no one wants to be made vulnerable. I think in older times people took greater risks for love and could endure rejection better.

It's great to see this.. sometimes I feel that handwriting is going out of style with all the technology and ease of contacting people via text and computer FB and email. My husband (then boyfriend) wrote {love} letters to me while completing college. I still have them of course :) and cherish them.

Thank you for the introduction to this company. It looks like they do such beautiful work!

We don't write nearly enough by hand anymore...these are a lovely idea! Thanks for sharing, Elizabeth!

What a good idea :) One year I wrote 52 love letters (one for every week of the year) to my husband as a birthday gift. It was a fun tradition to read them over coffee once a week...

OH, GORGEOUS!!! Yes, I'm a romantic. I am still mending my broken heart and swear I'll never date - but then I read this and think, "Oh, how lucky to have someone who adores you that much that would go to the trouble of writing such a beautiful letter." Perhaps, there is hope for love again at some point. xo

What an absolutely COOL SERVICE! My goodness this is fantastic, Elizabeth! There is nothing like a hand-written letter, NOTHING!

AND....thank you so very much for visiting and leaving a comment. That was so kind of you! ENJOY YOUR DAY and let YOUR love soarrrrrrrr! Anita

What a beautiful, romantic idea. I think it's important to continue with handwritten letters - it means so much more than a text or email!

What beautiful letters and so touching....great idea!

Stephanie @ La Dolce Vita said...

Oh these are lovely and charming! I wish we still lived in a world where love letters were sent more often. What a beautiful way to keep the custom alive. I think this is a perfect gift from a groom to his bride and vice versa.

We have all the letters I wrote my husband whne we were dating and I was in another country and when he went off to basic for the military. But how inspiring I might start this again, in secret, and then give it to him on our anniversary.
