[Tex/LaTex] Multi-line indentation using description

descriptionhorizontal alignment

I'm having trouble using description. I would like the separation between my label and my description to be the same distance for each item, and have each additional line also be properly indented to the same distance, like so:

desired

So far all I seem to be able to get is:

Using the following code:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{enumitem}

\begin{document}
\begin{description} [leftmargin=*,labelindent=16pt]
\item [To:] blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah
\end{description}
\end{document}

The same code produces itemized lists when description is changed to enumeration, which is not exactly the desired effect. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Code:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{enumitem}

\begin{document}

\begin{description}[labelwidth=50pt,leftmargin=!]
\item [\textbf{To:}] blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah
\item [\textbf{From:}] blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah
\end{description}

\end{document}
