This year I decided to take a different route. Rather than putting all my energy into making cards, I thought I'd support a friend's card business and put energy into what I write. Each day this month I'm going to send one card to someone special in my life and tell them what I love about them, aka Love Letters.
A former co-worker told me she loved me the other day, quickly followed by a "I hope that wasn't weird. I just think we should say it more often, make sure the people who are important to us know we love them." I could not agree more.
