IT IS MELISSA’S BIRTHDAY!!! And, today on the blog I’m celebrating Mel being born, and celebrate I will. This year I wanted to do something special for Mel, something we could share to inspire you all to celebrate the people around you! I decided to mail out blank cards to some of our closest friends and I asked them to write what they love about Mel, how she’s changed them for the better, and how they are celebrating her in their life this year. There’s something so special and life giving about words from the closest people around you – something that an adorable new shirt, a fun little journal, or the perfect candle from Anthropologie cannot obtain, (although all that stuff is fun too ;))
So here’s how I did it: About a month before Melissa’s birthday I mailed out cards and stamped return envelopes to our close friends, mentors, and people who I know just love Melissa. I used this cute stationary to print directions for people on. I asked them to get them back to me about a week before her birthday so I could put them together in a cute birthday package!
No one in all the world is more thankful that you were born Mel, you inspire me everyday through your colorful and creative life. I pray this year that you grow in His grace and in the knowledge of Jesus.
