My mother was, and still is, a consumate letter writer. Our tastes in stationery always differed, but we always agreed that a good letter could always improve a person's day. There was something very comforting about the scratch of her pen against paper. As she was in all things, my mother was diligent about teaching me the different ways to show others how important they were to you. Taking the time to compose a letter was just one way to do so.
Though I'll readily admit to dropping the ball now & again, I grew to love writing letters, and once becoming a parent, tried to impart the same with my daughter. Sometimes she needed a little prodding, but as she got older she found that the prettier the paper, the more inclined she was to sit down and put pen to paper.
Much like my mother and I, Eldest enjoys beautiful stationery. It makes me very happy to be able to gift her with these sweet thank you cards for her birthday this year. I know she'll have many reasons to put them to good use!
The note cards fit Eldest's requirements for most things she loves: not too girly, simple, and fun. The touches of gold make them seem almost meant to be. I know she'll love them!
Come back for more Golden Birthday surprises~those still to come, and those already given. Happy Friday all!
An addendum: Thank you to everyone who took a moment yesterday to offer prayer for my cousin and her family. They are so blessed to have your extra prayers lifting them up!
