Old Postcards & My Book Resolution

By Steph's Scribe @stephverni

Old Postcards & My Book ResolutionI’m knee deep today in organizing for the spring semester, but I wanted to take a quick coffee break to show you these two gems I came across in my collection today.

I love old postcards, and as I’m getting back to the simpler things in life, and am much happier for doing so, letter writing and postcard writing are such a great way to bring back taking time to put your feelings on paper.

I loved the idea that I read that inspired a blog post a couple of years ago—every time you go on vacation, mail home a postcard to yourself (or postcards, depending on how long you’re away) and put it in your collection. You’ll be forced to write down the most important thing(s) or takeaway(s) from your trip. What people do with these collections of postcards vary. Check out a previous post I wrote for some inspiration.

Little coffee break…

Additionally, one of my New Year’s Resolutions (besides cranking on my new novel idea, something I recently began) is to read even more than I already do. Sometimes, when I am knee deep in the semester, it’s tough for me to read and enjoy a book. However, I’m not going to let that stop me this semester. No excuses. It’s January 10, and I’ve already read two books and am into my third. I plan to take in a whole lot of good reads this year, and am hoping you will share with me some of your favorites so that I can add them to my reading list.

Thanks for letting me take a little time out from crafting syllabi. I hope you’re having a great day.
