If you’ve ever seen the musical Fiddler on the Roof, then you’re familiar with tradition. All families have them, whether they’re traditional traditions, such as eating Thanksgiving dinner at the grandparents’ house, or whether they’re on the bizarre side, like eating Thanksgiving dinner only after it has been mixed in a blender for exactly 26 seconds. Well, one of my family’s traditions is writing thank you notes. It’s not exactly taboo, but still performed twice a year (birthdays and Christmas) without fail. Therefore, I embraced the ritual for once in order to use it to the advantage of my bucket list. In order to not be accused of cheating, I enclosed personal hand-written letters to everyone I was writing to (with exceptions within reason). I added this to the list because I want to remind the people that I care about how much they mean to me… and besides, who doesn’t love getting mail that they can actually read? I haven’t officially sent the letters yet, but that’s just a push of a red flag away. If you’re reading this and know it applies to you, be expecting a little white envelope soon!
Love & Summer,
