Love is in the air.

So I've been thinking a lot about love and happiness lately - everything just feels so good right now. I think it's the weather. At the same time, I've been incredibly busy. I do it to myself - pile on projects and then complain about projects piling up. It's a strange cycle. I was a little worried that I was taking on too much and that my happy feelings would fade away, welcoming stress. Then I got this beautiful postcard from Micaela in the mail. It's like she read my mind.

It put all of my happy thoughts back on center stage; so simple yet a perfect illustration of how I've been feeling lately. Thanks, Micaela!!

It's been such a long time since I've received any fun snail mail. I forgot what a good feeling it is!! I went against my eco-conscience and went straight to my favorite local stationery store, Spark's, to get my best friend a "just because" card. I really should've made a card or sent something I already had - buying new doesn't always sit well with me, but I was in the market for some gifts for Administrative Professionals Day anyway, my craft stuff is a mess, and I was really excited to send Jenna some surprise mail...so I got her a new card. It felt good to send my happy thoughts her way. I bet she smiles : )

Okay, now back to my projects….
