last year my resolution was to indulge my creative side a little more and...start a blog. as we can see, that has been going pretty well. not as in - i'm an amazing blogger known throughout foreign lands and far and wide, but as in - i did it and have continued to do it and toodle doodle doo. everyone let out a slow clap for me.
so this year i decided to do another actionable resolution. and that was to send a card to brian once a month. this is, hopefully (fingers and toes crossed), our last year long-distance. like 99% sure it is. and to make the not best situation better, i decided to have fun with it and send him little reminders of how much i appreciate him. i mean, who doesn't like a random piece of mail? i'm pretty sure he's onto me by now, so i want to post some of my favorite cards that i have found. since this has been such a deliberate process, i decided to give some support to the handmade community and only buy cards from etsy. below are some i sent and some of my favorite finds. some are funny, some are heartfelt, some are crude, some are touching. i love them all.
and lastly, it started with a card from this shop and led into a print for my friend getting married and then a print for myself. if you love reading, this is the shop for you. it's pure awesomeness.
even if the year ends with us in the same city, i think i may keep this up. sure, it's cheesy to send a card to someone you see every day, but stopping for a moment and collecting your thoughts to tell someone how much you appreciate them, cheesy or not, is always worth it.
