Snail Mail, Part 1

I think I'm going to attempt to keep track of my outgoing snail mail this year. This may be a New Year's resolution that falls to the wayside, but I'll do my best.

Years ago, someone gave me a bunch of cards from Thirty-One Gifts, a multi-level marketing scheme that I'm not entirely sure is on the up and up, and I have only a handful of those cards left at this point. The toast one was holding on because I usually don't send broad congratulations cards, but for specific events (birth, wedding, new job, whatever).
But my sister-in-law just bought a dental practice and I sent it to her.  Because why the hell not?  (She has celiac disease, like Dr. BB, so the asterisk is how the toast would be gluten-free, of course.)

My oldest niece turned nine last week and we sent her this awesome card with a check. I made some sort of "seal of approval" pun on the inside and I just know that someday those kids are going to think I'm funny. I don't think she gets puns yet, but someday she will and I'll be hilarious until she realizes that some lame, un-fun people think that puns aren't a sophisticated form of humor. And then I'll be boring Aunt NGS again.
Card from Man vs. George. Adorable!

  1. Aunts, especially aunts without attached cousins, are often the most interesting people in our familial lives.
