A quick and easy way to make someone happy :

I am sure I am not alone when I say receiving a hand written note in the mail makes the day that much better! Today I wrote my self a letter...sort of. It's a time capsule letter in bullet point form. 

This is my 5th time capsule i've done and each one is very special. I was looking around for my others yesterday but they are still packed away somewhere. I really want to find them though so I can share with you exactly how much of a trip it is to make them and then a year later read what you wanted to have happen that year.  For example, my 2010 capsule letter that I wrote New Years day had 9 things I was hoping for, one of which was to know the guy I would be marrying! Six months later, I met Jesse! All 8 of the 9 things happened for me...the one that didn't happen was traveling outside of the states.  

Anyways, I highly recommend this activity by yourself, with your partner, kids or bff's. Seal it and put it away for a year...I also did a video capsule with one of my best friends during our Senior year of college, we talked about 1 year, 3 year and 5 year goals...I need to find that too. 

I blacked out 3 things because as of right now those are personal. :/ Sorry. However, Oct 1, 2013 I promise to share the whole list whether or not they happen for me.... i'm a little nervous... oh and the 5 "new" classics.... that means to stop rereading the same classics over and over again and branch out. I'm a creature of habit when it comes to books. If you have any favorites to recommend I would love to know. A classic i've been meaning to start for a couple years now, is Atlas Shrugged. This is the year! :-)

I am in the Young Women's at my church [those of you who aren't Mormon, it just means I am a youth leader] and I was put with the 14-16 year old's...such a fun age! Anyways, my lesson that I was supposed to teach yesterday was on health & beauty. I love giving/getting handouts from lessons even if it's just a quote printed out. It makes it more memorable,no? I thought sharing some of my homemade granola would be a fun handout since it's health related. The recipe was taken from the Armstrong Mansion B&B where I use to work. I want to share it with you too and I included the print out if you would like. Cellophane bags work great for this and can be found at any craft/paper supply store and they are also affordable. Folding the label over and stapling it brings it to a whole other level. :) Do this with any treats and feel free to send me some via snail mail! lol eh? eh? :-[)

That's a good idea! I will try my 1st time capsule!

Rachael, the granola is pretty good, do you every make granola? :)

Kumiko: thank you! :) I'm sure someone else thought of this idea ages ago though so I cannot take credit. But I am excited for you to do a capsule of your own, it really is special.

You're reminding me of letters. Oh yes letters to friends, I have been a lazy one on this one lately BUT (last time I say this) the letter should be on its way by the end of this week or Monday LATEST!
