Last week, I had a little time to reflect on me and my Love’s relationship. I thought of all the sweet memories we have made, but one memory specifically stuck out for some reason…
I couldn’t stop thinking about how I told my Love that I loved him for the first time. I finally realized why this was on my mind so much… It was around this time last year that I finally worked up the nerve to say that special 4 letter word.
My Love dropped the L-bomb first, and I really really wanted to say it back to him when he did. But another part of me also wanted to wait so that I could say it to him in person… oh the struggles of the beginning of a long distance relationship.
So I compromised, and I sent him a telegram… Yes, you read that correctly. A telegram. Did you even know telegrams are still a thing? I didn’t either. But with Pinterest’s help, I found Telegram Stop, a service that will send a personal telegram to any address for around $7.
Why on earth would I send my Love a telegram?!? The better question is why not! It was a creative way to write him a sweet message. Since, the “L word” is a big deal, I wanted it to be special. A telegram would be memorable for both of us.
Here’s how it turned out:
Of course, when he received it, my Love was completely elated! And he still has the telegram to this day!
So if you’re looking for a creative way to write to your loved ones, send them a telegram!
