I thought September was going to be a slower month on the snail mail front due to The Husby and I going on a short city break and having some staycation time on island, however I actually squeezed in a surprising amount of letter writing before heading off to Latvia.
So here are this months stats; I have sent 30 postcards, 2 letters, 2 cards and 1 parcel to a total of 16 countries.
Dear Blossom, what a sweet little girl you are becoming; kind, conscientious and such an encourager. Thanks for cheering me on and keeping me company, I’m not going to want to let you go when big school arrives next year. Dear Bubbles, now that you are officially a walking, talking toddler the fun has really started! Thank you for making me laugh deep within my belly and for bringing sunshine on even the cloudiest of days. Dearest Daughters, may you continue to bless people in your own unique ways and wherever God places you.
In what ways do the little ones in your life bless you?
A day late with my Ten on Ten and Sunday was the usual kind of day really with a busy morning at Church followed by a lazy afternoon at home (for us girls at least). We enjoyed playing in the garden, exercising and snuggling, all in all some well spent family time.
August has been a fun month of snail mailing for me, full of bright colours and lots of flowers and summertime inspiration. I finally started dabbling with brush lettering this month so incorporated this into a few pieces of mail art and I again joined in the More Love Letters initiative and hope to make this a regular thing.
So here are this months stats: I have sent 23 postcards, 3 letters and 2 cards to a total of 13 countries.
*(Belarus, Canada, Czech Republic, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Netherlands, New Zealand, Russia, South Africa, Taiwan, Ukraine, U.S.A.)
Here are some of the shots:
Did you manage to send some happy mail this month?
Dear Blossom, your bunny friend Boo has been your cuddly companion since your were a sweet little baby. Loving him has brought you so much comfort and joy, whilst also teaching you to be gentle and kind, a real mother hen. You make my mama’s heart proud. Dear Bubbles, before you were even born we choose Bear especially for you and it really was the most perfect choice. Perhaps it was prophetic that the little girl, with the bear called Bear would turn out to be so adventurous and brave, just like the man who Bear is named after. Dearest Daughters, you are both so different and yet at times so very alike, you compliment each other beautifully. May your bond of sisterhood enable you to celebrate your differences and revel in your similarities.
