love notes

There's a kitty sleeping on my lap, and outside this window
sunlight filters through trees and wildflowers dance with the wind.

When I start to feel impatient/frustrated/ready to give up, I like to come here and make a list of all I'm thankful for.

Yesterday was one of those difficult days.
I sat here awhile and wrote:

lunch outside on the deck
birdies chirping
cool breeze
the smell of lavender
bright flowers
ice cold lemonade
three free days
by this time my heart was feeling lighter, but I kept going.
There really is so much to be thankful for.

It just so happens, it gets even better!
Waiting in the mailbox was a bright + beautiful love note from a dear friend.
(Which quickly made it to the top of my thankful list for the day - thank you, Erica!).

I was reminded the power of a note in the mail, and how it can cheer, encourage, uplift, and inspire those we care about.

So today, I sit here in this space, writing love notes. 

I challenge you to send out a note to someone you've been thinking about this week!
Only good will come from it <3.
