I have never been on the New Years resolution bandwagon. There isn’t really a story behind that, I just…haven’t. However, this year, I have seen the popularity of new years resolutions in the blogosphere (is that a word?) and that had me thinking as I filled in the birthdays and anniversaries on my 2011 calendar.
If you have been keeping up with the blog, you may have seen my love of Christmas cards here and here. But my love goes beyond Christmas cards. I love getting birthday cards, anniversary cards, letters, postcards- I adore them all. Any escape from taking that walk to the mail box and finding only bills and junk mail puts a skip in my step. It makes me wonder if other people love that feeling as much as I do?! I bet they do!
So- my 2011 New Years resolution is to send cards- birthday cards, anniversary cards, new baby cards, engagement cards. You name it- I’m going to do my best to honor it with a card. I may even branch out into letters and postcards (no promises- I don’t want to spread myself too thin and fail at the initial resolution).
To my best friends, I say, please keep me accoutable! If you didn’t get a card, call me out on it! I will thank you for it. 🙂
(My other new years resolution is to get back to my wedding weight before the lodge trip in April. Gotta look hot in a bikini and a bolo.)
