Love letter your community: Golden birthday celebration

Since my golden birthday fell on a Wednesday (but mostly because I spent that day in Iowa at a standards-based grading conference...), I had some people over on Saturday to write love letters, and to celebrate the birthday.

This year Move Love Letters (@moreloveletters) teamed up with Kind (@KINDSnacks) to spread #kindwords during Love Letter Your Community week, April 22 - 28.  I pulled out all of the scrap paper I'd been saving at work; along with my markers, tape, and glue sticks; and we were set.

Love Letter Your Community

Everyone put their own spin on their letters.  Some had time to write multiple letters and make colorful envelopes for each one, while others put all of their time/energy into a single letter.

It was fun to scatter them about downtown Madison:

More Love Letters: Hidden in Madison

More Love Letters: Hidden in Madison

More Love Letters: Hidden in Madison

More Love Letters: Hidden in Madison

I've been checking the "Found Letters" section of the More Love Letters site religiously since Saturday, waiting to see if someone who found one of my letters writes in.  (You include "moreloveletters.com" on the letters you leave around, so that finders can post a picture / share a statement if they would like to.)

Want to spread smiles and good feeling?  Write a love letter today, and leave it where someone else will find it: a bus seat, a stranger's pocket, a city bench, etc.

Thanks to all the friends that wrote letters with me!
