With May coming to a close and looking back on all of the things I have recently accomplished, all of the things on the go, and all of the things coming up, I’ve realized that I sometimes forget to take a moment or two for myself. We all often forget to have little rewards or celebrations for our own accomplishments (may they be big or small). So especially after all the mayhem of making-over the etsy shop, I thought I would enjoy a day of little celebrations.It has been almost two weeks since I replied or wrote to any of my pen pals and I don’t even remember when I last brewed myself a pot of tea and sat in the sunshine, next to the window, enjoying the bright green of the wilderness behind our house. I set up a little rolling caddy table with all of my recently received letters, and a bunch of my mail art supplies. So this morning I’m enjoying several hours finishing up some mail art packages, sipping tea, getting lost in my own thoughts and staring out the window. Later today I plan on enjoying a lovely home cooked indian dinner with my beau, much like the one I cooked last week with butter chicken, kashmiri rice, chickpea dahl, roasted curry vegetables and toasted whole wheat naan. We’ll probably be drinking a final batch of raspberry mojitos, as my giant $2 bundle of mint has finally dwindled to it’s last few leaves. I may also tune into some Queen Diamond Jubilee celebrations later, as the Elizabeth antler pillow behind my back and my jubilee medal are already making me feel festive. I hope you will take some time this weekend to celebrate the recent goals you have achieved!

[...] hope you enjoyed the bombardment of postal goodness!!! It was a busy month of mail art making with my little mail art caddy set up by a large picture window. I will miss writing from that spot, but am also looking forward [...]
