Snail mail

28 Jan

When was the last time you wrote a letter to someone? In a world of email and text messages, it’s pretty rare to send and receive letters these days. It’s definitely old school, but there is something to be said about taking the time to send a note to those you love.

I don’t write as often as I should, but I’m trying to improve. It’s so thoughtful to hand write a note and let others know you’re thinking of them. Plus, I know how happy I feel when I find a letter or postcard in the mail.

A few people in my life will be getting letters soon, and I hope it brings a smile to their faces.


Hope your week is off to a great start. Happy Monday!

P.S. If you’re looking to catch up on nominees for Best Picture, I saw Zero Dark Thirty this weekend and definitely recommend it. I’ll be seeing Silver Linings Playbook tonight. Cheers to Oscar season!

The Bliss List

5 Aug

Lately it seems like the glass is half empty. I can’t really explain it, but I’m been feeling more negative than usual. In an effort to improve my attitude, I’m going to start “The Bliss List.” Each week, I’ll be on the lookout for things that made me smile and post them in a short list.

This week I actually found quite a few things to be happy about, but I’ll limit the list to three.

letter[a letter from Sebastian – always brightens my day]

cupcakes[cupcakes from my office roommate for my birthday]

Yup that’s right, my birthday is tomorrow, and I’m really looking forward to it. As I turn 23, I can’t help but look back on this past year. I traveled to Germany twice, started my career, went on my first official work trip and fell in love with a really great guy. If 22 was this great, I can only imagine what 23 will hold.

Have a great weekend!
