By now you know, I love snail mail- both sending and receiving. (As demonstrated here, here, here, and here in case you’re new around these parts and this is brand new information. And if you are new, hello! Welcome! I’m glad you dropped by.)
While I was in San Miguel, I picked up a few postcards to send to my friends and family and had the best time one afternoon, listening to music on the rooftop deck of our rental, writing little notes to my people.
I mailed the postcards the day I was leaving, with full knowledge that I would beat them home. And that got me thinking; I should have written a postcard to myself.
When you’re on vacation, you feel all the feels and you make grand promises to come home with new goals and a fresh perspective. The thing is, it only takes a few days back in the old routine to help you lose your inspiring vacation imagination.
What if, after a few weeks of being home, you received a postcard from your vacationing self?! A simple reminder straight from the source, encapsulating all the energy and perspective you wished you could bottle up and save for later when you need it most! The ultimate souvenir.
Next time, I’m totally doing it.
