Paper Planes & Packets

At the end of 2017, in an attempt to stay in touch with my friends and family, I decided to write one letter a month for a year. No matter how busy life got, and even if I couldn’t make the time to write a new post, I never failed to send a letter. I fell in love with the habit, and the joy of reading everyone’s thoughtful replies, and so I kept with it.

Below you’ll find the letters that I sent out so far. The ones marked with a star (⭐️) include my “current favorites”; these could be songs, books, products, lifestyle experiments, or anything else that I’m currently enjoying.

📬 If you’d like to receive my letters (the first of every month) in your inbox, please drop your e-mail address here: Paper Planes & Packets, and I’ll take care of the rest.
