Writing a Love Postcard

Today's challenge is to share a moment in my day. I've landed yesterday and am now soaking in sweat. It is hot. Sticky hot. The kind of hot that makes you want to stay under a cold shower forever. Since I spent today running around obtaining a resident certificate along with other boring errands that involve paperwork in the Philippines, I will cheat a little bit and will share one favorite moment of my day before I left Dubai.


I found this cute Paperchase All Abroad Postcard Book during a trip to Borders. I was excited to open it. When I did, I thought of all the bloggers I've met here online over the years and many months. Russia made me think of Stephanie of Stephanie Says, Australia made me think of Deidre of Decoybetty, Trishie of Under Lock and KeyVanisha of Vanisha's Life in Australia and Helen of Eat Enjoy Live.  London made me think of Meghan of Wishful Thinking and Miss B of Bobochic. New York made me think of Jane of Always With Yoo and Stephanie Lin of Fashion and Tea. I also thought of Sherry of Mama Diaries, Tina of Girl With a New Life,  Helen of Ah That's Love and Irene of Away from Tenerife

This includes all of the other bloggers in my Daily Reads and new bloggers whose blogs I just started following and reading. You've kept me company every morning with my cup of coffee while I read your blogs.  Thank you :)


I bought these cards to write love letters to my husband. I wrote short excerpts of memorable moments with him during our trip together in the city/ country mentioned on the postcard.  If it was a country, we haven't been to, I wrote things I wanted to do with him there. I hid these postcards in places around the house where he'll easily find them. (e.g. on the fridge, in his drawer etc.)

He found one by chance before I left and smiled, "You and your love letters. How many of these did you hide?"  He would need to search for them to find out.

Happy Thursday!
Love & light,
Arni

  8. Lovely post cards. There is nothing better than getting a handwritten card.

  13. Those look soooo adorable! I would die if someone wrote me a love letter on that, your husband is the luckiest guy! I was so devastated when Borders closed in the US, mostly because I no longer had an outlet where I could buy Paperchase!

    Would you like to follow each other?

  17. Your postcards are so cute and what a lovely, thoughtful idea to write messages about your memories and where you would like to go with your husband. It was so sweet of you to think of me in England too! Thank you.

  18. Omg I don't mind at all you don't writing any travel post for a while, I love the fact you are letting us know more a bit more about yourself and your beautiful routines. Those cards are amazingly beautiful and the love letters to your husband is really sweet. Thanks for think about us, I've been really busy with work lately but I love to read your posts when I have a while.

  19. What a beautiful idea, Arni! I'm sure your husband is loving this idea as well. And those cards are really nice. I used to collect postcards from the places I visit but now I switched to collect beutiful vintage postcards I pick up at shops or cafés - and I also like to send postcards to my loved ones every now and then for no reason at all.

    Thanks for thinking of me, as well! I also think of you now whenever I hear or read about the Philippines :)

  20. What a cute idea!!! And thank you for the shout out! I feel so blessed for the connections I've been able to make through blogging, and you're definitely a highlight. Russia would have been even colder this winter had it not been for my sweet blogging network!

    And for the record, we love hearing all about you. :) Xoxo
