I found my soul sister when I was a broken, lost 19-year-old girl. I was in a bad relationship, I wasn’t taking care of myself mentally or physically. I had many faces and identity’s based on the people around me. I was living with roommates and between us there was always new people at the apartment and one day Kylie was there. She was so fresh compared to the people we usually had over. She was this little force of fun, it was impossible not to be drawn into her personality.
Our mutual friend eventually gave us each others numbers and the rest was history. Here we are 8 years later and neither of us even talk to the person who introduced us to each other. We have moved out of the town we met in and even the state. Since meeting she has had 3 kids and is currently engaged to her high school sweetheart living in Texas.
Having your soul sister multiple states away is hard, only so many texts and face-time calls before you really miss each other. That is why I came up with the idea of Postal Chicks. The idea is simple we send snail mail packages to each other every month, to make it fun we have themed the packages. October is our first box, with fall starting again we went with the theme Sugar and Spice! Not to mention that it is the birthday month for my girl Kylie! Everyone loves checking their mail and seeing a hard-written note from a loved one.
I knew from the day I saw her sitting on my couch that we were going to be best friends, and I hope that we are able to continue these boxes till we are luck enough to see each other face to face. If you would like to follow our boxes join our social media family:
If you have a friend a state or country away, never stop checking in and reminding them that you still care. Try sending a package of love. It is a simple reminder that you aren’t alone no matter where life takes you a friend can make all the difference.
