Love Notes to my girls

Happy New Year!  Did you have a nice holiday?  We had good times with family on Christmas Eve, Christmas day, New Year's day, and another Saturday in between.  It goes by too fast, doesn't it?  I'll be leaving my interior Christmas decorations up for a little while, because I like how they look and I can finally actually enjoy them, without being so crazy-busy.  I'll probably take them down little by little, over the next couple of weeks.

Today's post was pretty easy to put together, as I had these photos below saved in draft form in Blogger.  These little tags are love notes I made for each of my daughters a couple of years ago.  I made more tags/notes than are shown here, but did not have the photos ready for this post.  I wrote a short message on the back of each one to encourage and uplift my girls.  I'd quietly leave one per week or so, somewhere in their bedrooms so they'd notice them as they went about their day.  Nothing like finding a little love note when you least expect it! 💖

These notes will stay with your daughters forever, Colleen. It sinks in, as I'm sure you realize. Wise quotes and beautiful to look at. It's nice to have a chance to slow down. Wishing you a happy new year!
