As seen on:
by Carey Sue Vega in Etiquette, Manner Monday, Manners

I hope you’re enjoying some down time and relaxing over the Labor Day weekend.

Recently I shared a post about The Ice Cream Dude, who is teaching children in Buffalo, New York, the art of Gratitude one ice cream bar at a time.  Well, a huge thanks to my friend from cruise ships, Laura Cobb Kolvoy, for sharing another inspiring story about the power of the pen…

Meet Rachel Weil, she calls herself The Letter Farmer.  Since July, Weil has been parking her red van and popping up in places all over Seattle, Washington.  Once she gets to her destination, she sets up tables with pens and free postcards (she even covers the postage), throws open the doors to her mobile shop, and encourages people to write to someone.  To read the entire story, please click here.

I don’t know about you, but I’m ready for a road trip to Seattle to meet her!  Who wants to join me!?!?
