Sincerely, John Hughes

While perusing the lovely Goodnight, Little Spoon this morning, I came across a really beautiful letter-writing story that I just had to share. Sincerely, John Hughes is a blog post about a woman who corresponded with John Hughes for 2 years when she was younger, in the mid-80s. Yes, they wrote letters. It's a lovely story and I hope you all enjoy it as much as I did. (And yeah, I am a child of the 70s and 80s, so I'm a big John Hughes fan anyway.)

In other news, I have three (3!!) sets of houseguests over the next 7 days. I may not be posting every day (I'll try, no promises) and I may not be writing all that many letters (I'll try, no promises). So yeah, the letter pile is gonna get even bigger and I'm gonna get even more behind. *le sigh* Don't take it personally, I'd rather be writing letters...


  1. Aw, isn't that an amazing post? I'm sure those letters are precious to her. I can remember writing fan mail when I was young, but I certainly didn't receive replies like that!

    I hope you can sneak in some letter writing and blogging while you're busied with guests!

    Ps. Thank you kindly, link is now repaired :)

  2. Oh, I shall certainly try to sneak in some letter-writing... but your letter, Teacup, is already on its way to you. :-)
