Post A Letter:


Sometimes, we all miss the good old days which were full of innocence. Everything was not so “easy” back then. To express the feelings of the heart, one had to write a letter and then wait for the answer and the whole process fetched to a month or 2 months also. Compared to that, we are living in a superfast world where expressing any form of feeling is just a message or call or click away. On your best friend’s birthday this year, write a letter to him/her to greet a happy life ahead. It would come as a big surprise to your best friend. Make sure you post the letter in time so that your friend receives it by birthday.

Bake Cakes & Cookies:
