When I am old and grey, I will open this box of cards and read every single one. I swear I will.
Those cards are filled with my favorite memories, insides jokes that I canâ€™t remember, and descriptions of vacations, parties, milestones, and hot dates. :) I canâ€™t throw them away!
I have kept about 75% of the cards Iâ€™ve received since 2001. I am a CARD HOARDER. The wedding cards have their own box.
Do you keep cards, too?
I was in crazy-lady organizing, cleaning, and packing mode today. We move to North Carolina inâ€¦ 11 days!
This eveningâ€™s task involved going through all of our photos, letters, and other memories and organizing them into plastic boxes.
Guess what I found? A letter I wrote to myself in 2004 (I was 20). I was on a plane going to Europe with BFF Sarah, and my personal life was in a major upheaval. I had a â€œepiphanyâ€ about life on that plane ride across the Atlantic, and I wrote it all down. I was going to share it on the blog, but on second read, maybe itâ€™s too personal. But it was a fun thing to find, and I think Iâ€™ll write myself a letter NOW so I can find it in 2016 and relive everything Iâ€™m doing now. 🙂
Fuel for packing was a Naturally Nutty chocolate toffee peanut butter sandwich!
Glorious two-egg omelet with spinach, sundried tomatoes, mushrooms, and gorgonzola cheese.
And polenta â€œhash browns,â€ which I made by stir-frying slices of polenta next to the â€˜shrooms and sundried tomatoes. The flavors mixed perfectly. Plus â€“ one dish clean-up!
Iâ€™m eyeing up an apple for dessert!
Good night, my friends!
Edited to add: Just stayed up real lateâ€¦ so late I got hungry. So I had more PB toast.
