When Your Friends Live Far Away...

Wednesday, December 23, 2015

I am a firm believer in sending mail to those you love.  I know whenever I receive something in the mail unexpectedly from someone (like when my sister randomly sends me cards--and I love them...thank you Rach!), I feel so loved and cherished.  Since it's the Christmas season, I wanted to love on those that I couldn't be with during this time of the year.  We don't need to forget the power of regular mail!

With that being said, this year I knew I wanted to bake something (because it's my favorite) to send to long-distance friends.  I baked these S'mores bars (and doubled the recipe) last Wednesday night.  After letting them cool all night, I cut them up on Thursday and packaged them in these containers that I picked up at Walmart.  I enclosed a little handwritten note with each package when I mailed them Thursday afternoon.

I mailed them to my two BFFS in Alabama and to a blog friend in Texas.  My Alabama girls received theirs the next day and here's what they sent me!

Mary Beth thought they were great!

....I didn't really think about how they would mail.  Luckily, they tasted much better than they looked!

And Janie decided to send me a play by play of her getting, opening, eating, and judging my food!

Hopefully this encourages you to send something unexpected to a friend (or even neighbor)!  Never underestimate how a little mail can make someone feel so appreciated and valued!

Linking up with Jenn today!


  1. I love sending "snail mail". It's so much more meaningful than a text or email. Have a wonderful Christmas!

  2. I think its so sweet that you sent your friends something to enjoy - love even more that they sent you pictures of them enjoying it!! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  3. Love this! My friends are spread out as well!

  4. Aw this is such a great idea and so sweet!!

  5. This is the best idea! Getting a sweet note/gift in the mail can really just mean so much! Those bars look AMAZING, too!

  6. I absolutely love to get and send snail mail!

  7. Such a great idea! Sending mail is one of my most favorite things to do and one of my most favorite things to receive! I've started a few of my own Christmas traditions and one of those is making sure to send out handwritten Christmas cards. It's something so small to do, but also something so fun to get!

  8. I'm still in the happy land with those stores treats... if only we had taken selfies!! Haha!
