The Goal: to take and post at least one picture each day for the entire year that I'm 27.

I find that I rush through the day, to rush through the week, to get to the weekend...just to find that an entire year goes by in the blink of an eye. So, on the eve of my last day as a 26 year old I decided to make a change. I challenged myself to take the time each day and find at least one moment worth remembering, hoping that in this way I will learn to live each day for what it is. For regardless of how uniform the days may feel at a glace each one is truly unique and worth cherishing.

Day 213 - Mail Time!!!

Here's comes the mail, it never fails

It makes me want to wag my tail

When it comes I want to wail - Mail!
(Blues Clues)
Kipp made a very good point the other day... it has become pretty depressing to get the mail
All you get are bills, adds, junk mail...and all kinds of crap...some that isn't even meant for you!
Don't get me wrong, I love how convenient emails and texts are - but what happened to real mail?
Luckily we still get real cards around holidays and special occasions and I savor it when we do
Today's was one of those magical good mail days...
First up: a notice we have an undelivered piece of mail - Exciting!
Sender: Riehle (possibly my grandma?)
And all we have to do is leave 20 cents in the box??? Is that a bribe???

Second up: a belated, but ultra special Valentine's Day card
Made by hand from my mom
Special feature: the sewn paper interior...I love it!

Third: an anniversary card from the Grands (Steve's paternal grandparents)
They are so on top of it...always sending card for birthdays, holidays and everything in between
I need to step my game up and get them cards more often...I always hit Christmas but that's about it

I should also mention my friend Jacque
She is the best at sending out cards (and she is very young so it is even more impressive)
With that, I am going to go finish the bridal shower invites I am making so I can mail them out this weekend
