My Treasured Chest - Card Memories

This post is part of the "My Treasured Chest" series where I post about findings from my cedar chest. You can read about how it all began at the My Treasured Chest - The Beginning post.

Bottom Left:  Valentine's Day card from husband Jason - dated 2005
Inside he penned: "I'm so glad you are my wife and friend.  I truly do love you and pray we are together for the rest of our lives.
Love 4-ever, Jason"

Top Left:  Birthday card from sister and family - dated 1991
Inside my sister penned: :Terra, you are 15 now.  Oh my gosh!  One year to get driving age raised.  Haha.
Love ya, Traci"

Bottom Right: General card from Grandma Hall - unk date
Inside she penned: "Dear Terra, I love you and hope you can write me.  Thanks for the nice Halloween card.  Kiss Shelby for me and tell Brad "hi" (and everyone else)
Love you, Grandma Hall"

Top Right:  Birthday card from daughter, Shelby, and my mother - dated December 2000
Do you keep cards that you receive?

What a sweet project! My mom has a cedar chest. Every once in a while she'd allow us to go through it with her. Heaven! I wish I had one myself.

Oh yes, I do keep special cards and notes. I am very sentimental about things like that.

I only keep the extra special cards (maybe less than 10!) Ever since my dad passed and my mom had to quickly sell her house, I haven't been very good at keeping sentiments. I tend to get rid of anything that doesn't serve a purpose. I'm the opposite of a hoarder which could also possibly be a bad thing. I love that you have these cards. I'm sure they put a smile on your face!

How fun to be able to go back and revisit memories like that! I do keep most of the cards that I get but I'm trying to figure out what to DO with them all o.O

Unbeknownst to many, keeping cards over the years takes up it's fair share of space!

I really should keep them! I did come across a letter my mom wrote me in HS.
