My friend Jenn just posted on FB that she wrote a letter to herself and sealed it to read next New Year’s Day. I thought that was a great idea so I did the same. I just wrote down how this year went, how I want next year to go and some things I hope happen for myself and everyone around me. It was two pages long and on some creepy-ass stained glass stationary I bought a few years ago. Speaking of creepy, this is the folder I found it in:
I am nothing if not a thrify nerd/maniac. I found that gem (and all of the weird stationary and stickers within) at various NJ dollar stores. Good. Times. And yes that is a unicorn and a castle on my envelope to Future Coleen. I have it on high authority that Future Coleen will appreciate the sentiment and (questionable) wit of affixing these to such a personal document of posterity.
I really wish I could say that I won’t be searing your eyeholes with another post today but I have had three giant cups of tea and MAN am I having a good time. Deal with me, Happy New Year!
P.S. Yes Kristyn, I am going to force you to do this too! We will store them in the Card Moose until next year!
P.S. #2 How about that? I am the first person to add a Richard Marx tag to WordPress!
I’m sure it won’t surprise you to find out that Kristyn is also a unicorn. She knew she was a unicorn since before she met me. I actually helped her out of her unicorn closet before stepping out of my own. Together we’ve leaned on each other when times have gotten tough. When someone unicorn bashed me (aka mistook me for Mr. Ed’s wife), she was right there. When her ‘corn didn’t come out looking right in the morning, I fixed it with a curling iron. We’ve stood up for each other in the face of all forms of unicorn discrimination and now we want to lead the others into the light of the shimmering rainbow.
We are unicorns, hear us roar!
Oh and read her blog while you’re welcoming her into the light of the shimmering rainbow. (And look she is standing directly inside of it! That’s me on the far left in silhouette. I know I cut a dazzling figure, I have a ‘corn but doesn’t affect my peripheral vision.): YKristyn
