Happy Monday! I hope you had a lovely weekend. While I was working on cleaning out a few areas in my room, I rediscovered one of my favorite things. All the cards I've ever received since my first birthday are stored away in a cabinet in my room. Love notes from family, encouragement from friends, high school notes I wasn't supposed to be writing, a letter from the pastor who married my mom and dad and dedicated me when I was 4, cards from my mom that she'd give me when I'd go on trips, funny notes my dad wrote me, the cards that he would send me with flowers on valentine's day. So many precious memories and words written to me over the last 22 years. I just love knowing they're all in there!
I'm not sure what I'm going to do with all these cards, but I just can't seem to part with them! Some may call this hoarding, but I'll call it my card collection :) Reading through a few of these cards made me wonder if you collect something special? In addition to all the cards, I also collect vintage tea cups. If you've been here for a while, you know tea is my favorite thing! I drink it every morning and sometimes at night. It actually got me through college, as it soothed my soul and reminded me of home. Oh, and kept me awake ;) When my great grandma passed away years ago, she left me three teacups, and since then, I've added a few more to my collection. They are so, so treasured!
So friends, do you
Enjoy your day!
