The Genius of Email

July 19, 2011

When I was 17 years old, I was introduced to email.  My boyfriend at the time was in the military & told me about actually getting on the internet and sending a letter that he would get instantly.  What?! You mean I don't have to sit down with a pen & paper and mail you a letter to California anymore?! Perfection!  So together we set up my email address. (which I still use today!) The very next morning I checked it and he had written me my 1st ever email!! I was so excited! I even printed and framed it because I thought that this was the start of something big!

No more of this? Yea!!

Ever since I have emailed and emailed.  Whether for work, personal, invitations, or just to say hi, email has become an integral part of my life.  My husband & I email back and forth during the day.  Usually to ask him to stop at the grocery store on the way home, or to remind him of things we have to do this weekend, but it's still awesome to know he'll get it and email me back in a matter of minutes!  It's so easy and at the tip of your fingers.  Never having to look for a pen & paper, grab stamps, and walk to the mailbox.  You can jump on Yahoo! and type out a quick email letting a friend or loved one know you're thinking of them or that you want to get together soon.  Just perfect!

I love this video because it reminds me of Eric & Bella.  I hope one day she will send this type of email to her Daddy once she is away at college! Actually brings a tear to my eye just thinking about it!
