It all started with me seeing these beautifully sparkly cards in Wal-Mart and loudly sighing and announcing that I would just LOVE to have one of these cards for my collection. The next holiday rolled around and in my card Brandon wrote, "I'm sorry this isn't Taylor Swift, I couldn't' find any cards!" Well the next time I was at Target I found not only one but a WHOLE RACK of Taylor Cards. Just to be a pain I got quite a few and gave them to him to make my point.
From then on it's been war. And I benefit from both ends! He has an American Greeting Store near him in Chapel Hill so he has that leg up, but recently I found a website where you can personalize her cards. So currently I am winning!
However, the other day Bran asked me in a tiny voice, when are we going to stop buying Taylor Swift Cards? While I was caught off guard by it, he has a point. The other portion of the story is the fact that we not only save and cherish the cards (okay so that's my thing but still), I actually frame them. Here are just a few of the frames...
We already have about 8 frames and at least 5 or 6 more to make with the cards we have. So it is with a heavy heart that I have come to realize that my Taylor love (aka obsession) may be coming to an end. We decided that if we see a really cute card that we will get it, but that we will start mainly sending normal mail.
So thank you Taylor Swift for making these wonderful cards that have become a wonderful memory in my home, and my homes to be. They have brought me lots of joy and have made long distance love, just a little easier to face. I can't exactly explain my attatchment to them, and while I am excited to be one step closer to not need to send mail from Tennessee to North Carolina, I am a bit melancholy to see the extravaganza coming to an end.
I will however stay on the lookout for her greeting cards for weddings... All is not lost ;)
