Nothing could have prepared me for how much I would love the entire cookie/postcard exchange. Finding postcards in my mailbox every day for a week was just the start of it. Dedicating two nearly full days to baking cookies, dizzy in the evening from indulging my sweet tooth all day. Packing the fragile fruits of my labor in way too much colorful gift paper, offending the sensibilities of my inner environmentalist. Stretching packaging tape over the flaps on the cardboard boxes, the skin on my hands dry from the paper handling. Inking the boxes with my fat Sharpie pen, trying to get a buzz from the fumes.
Best of all, I got to read what all these awesome people are grateful for. Today, I am grateful for my blog readers. I had no idea how collectively cool you were. (I suspected it, though.) I am already excitedly planning for Snippets of Gratitude’s 2nd Birthday!
