lesson #273 i learned from my mother.

my mom always encouraged us kids to write thank you's whenever it was appropriate [like after birthdays, Christmas, etc.], and i guess old habits really do die hard because at the ripe old age of 25 years i still love writing a simple thank you. and now that i have these little letter stamps to play around with, my love for writing/making thank you cards is starting to get a little ridiculous! it might not look like it, but i always try super hard to get all the letters straight. of course they never are, but in the end i kind of love the skiwampus-ness of it all. :)

since today is Thanksgiving Eve and since the theme of this blog post is thank you cards, i only thought it would be fitting that i tell everyone thank you! thank you to my sweet husband, my parents, my family, my husband's family, my friends, my husband's friends, my neighbors, the sweet and kind people i have met through this blog/anyone who even reads this blog, and to all the wonderful people in my life....thank you so so so much! i am feeling so blessed today.

happy thanksgiving! <3

  12. I would probably also start a tradition like this one to future children. lol. I think it's nice gesture. Makes other people feel nice, too -- and appreciated. ♥ Recently bought a t2i,too... ♥ I've been playing w/ it. What lens do you have and love? ;)
