Thank You Cards – A Lost Art

“Showing gratitude is one of the simplest yet most powerful things human beings can do for each other. And despite my love of efficiency, I think that thank-you notes are best done the old-fashioned way, with pen and paper. ”  – Professor Randy Pausch 


As Christmas holidays come to an end, lets not forget how to properly thank people for their love and presents. A nice note to Grandma for hosting Christmas dinner or a thank you note to an Aunt or friend for just a simple t-shirt.

I love thank you notes. I love writing them with a colorful pen and on pretty stationary. I love sending them in the mail. No email or text message. An old fashioned USPS snail pail letter! People don’t think about it like they used to. It’s a great way to express how you feel about something, and it makes the receiver feels special as well.

Not only is a thank you card just plain nice, it shows appreciation for something that someone may have put a lot of work into. It may not be noticeable, but a thank you note would make a big difference in someones day. They put in an effort to get you a gift or do something for you, you can put in the effort to thank them for it!

Week 15- Favorite Quotes

Just continuing on with my 52 lists project catch up game…pickin’ and choosin’ which ones I like! So here’s week 15: FAVORITE QUOTES.


Some one of them are funny, some of them are motivational and some of them are so deep they’re cheesy. But they all mean something to me, and keep me going through out my normal days. I have them written on my mirrors, on post its on my desk, and in my little red book. I’ve collected quotes for a long time, and I’m more than happy to share some of my favorites.


“Trust no man, fear no bitch”

“You’re entirely bonkers, but i’ll tell you a secret: all the best people are” 

“People were created to be loved. Things were meant to be used. The reason why the world is in chaos is because things are being loved and people are being used”

“Do not go where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.”

“Suck it up now, so you don’t have to suck it in later”

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate, our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.”

“Don’t tell people what you are. Show them what are you going to be. Never settle.”

“Bitch don’t kill my vibe.”

“I must be a mermaid. I have no fear of depths and a great fear of shallow living.”

“The world will continue to try & tell you who you are…until you stand up & show the world exactly who you’re gonna be.”

“The sea will set you free.”

“Trust is like a mirror. You can fix it, but you will always see that crack in the mother fuckers reflection.”

“Smile at the bitch who brings you down, laugh at the jackass who screws you over, and point the middle finger at the idiots who don’t know better.”

“Keep it classy, never trashy, and just a little bit sassy.”

So I put a couple more than I thought I would. But I have pages and pages of these! Thanks for enjoying!
