Thinking of You Week starts today! Thinking of You Week is an annual celebration of greeting cards and snail mail that has been around since 2014 and is gaining momentum recently. There is a special kind of joy that you get with snail mail that you just don't with a simple text or email.

Long distance relationships, in any capacity, tend to get a bad rap.
