Keep your old love letters, throw away your old bank statements

Keep your old love letters, throw away your old bank statements.

This is one of my favorite lines from the Sunscreen Song.ImageImage

I was cleaning up my house when i found some old cards, stashed away in a drawer. Brought a warm, fuzzy feeling to my heart.

Most of them are birthday/new year cards…then i opened up my suitcase, dug out some old love letters. Ah -i was hit by a bout of nostalgia.

I love writing. I think i can express my self better that way. I guess most bloggers who are a bit introverted will agree. :)

I don’t feel bad when i look at what my ex – boyfriends wrote for me…not that i have a lot of their stuff with me but i didn’t really feel like throwing all of this away. Perhaps when i meet that special person i shall. Or maybe i won’t.

Here’s a brief snippet of some of the stuff…what’s written inside one of the cards always make me sentimental..i blame it on mommy dearest. She is such a darling and all her words are always oozing with love! And then she loves putting stickers and stars and using colorful pens! Sigh.

A friend and I recently bought some beautiful hand-made paper. I look forward to writing more love – letters.

But till that happens, I am lucky to be loved so much anyway. :)

  1. I’ve been married now for almost 4 years (been together for 7)… before this relationship I was in another serious relationship (we were actually engaged but never managed to tie the knot) that lasted for almost 4 years (through most of college and then a little bit afterwards). I had kept a ton of stuff from the prior relationship, including cards and other things for a very long time and just recently (within the last year) finally got rid of it all. We both did a purge of our house to clean it up and free up some space and when it came down to filing them away in a box again to be hidden for another untold number of years or dump them into the recycle bin and be done with them, the choice was an easy one to make. Off they went to be turned into something useful again. I understand nostalgia, and I am a sentimental fool, but it was time to let go of those items.

  2. I imagine those who were named in that Panama money laundering bank scandal earlier this year (such as the now in disgrace former Prime Minister of Iceland) are wishing they had just kept their love letters and thrown away their old bank statements.
