Trying to keep up with birthdays challenges me to be mindful. I keep a birthday calendar but haven't found it optimally useful since I don't refer to it daily. Often it'll be the day before the birthday before I remember, and by then I'm too late to send a card; I want to do better! I'm still thinking about a method to help me with this. So far, I get messages from Facebook to alert me of birthdays that week, but I'd prefer to keep it analog. Above, I got one card sent out on time, but the envelope with no stamp needed international postage, which I dilly-dallied on until way too late. I still sent it, though!
I forgot to take a shot of the stack of invitations I sent out for MyKo's bridal shower last week, which puts me WAY above average! In addition to those nearly 70 invitations, I wrote a more personal note, in red ink on pink paper. I like how a good quality cotton paper can soak up the ink of a Sharpie pen.
And this week I've written two birthday cards and one letter. There are a couple more birthday cards to write yet before week's end!
What are you writing these days, and to whom?
