postmark a smile

cheesy title, fine, but there’s truth to it — something about receiving a paper card in the mail seems to make people happy. it’s that simple — the paper, the gimmick, perhaps just having something in the mailbox other than a bill.  whatever it is, i have a crush on almost all things paper, and so when holidays like father’s day come around, i find myself at card shops looking for the best way to make my fathers (father-in-law included here) smile.  this year, i found everything i needed at paper-source (you can generally find everything you need here.. it sets a high bar for original and quirky paper products).

more on card shops in minneapolis and saint paul to come — but for now, i have a date at the dog park (i’m actually meeting up with a girl i met there last week.. interesting how friendships form.)

enjoy the sunlight!
