Thanksgiving Cards Show you Care

Thanksgiving is a wonderful time of the year to show your appreciation and thankfulness to people who are special to you.  Christmas is the traditional time to send out cards but I challenge you to think differently this year and send a few cards out for thanksgiving.  Think of the surprise and happiness the recipients will have when they open your cards.

When you send out these Thanksgiving Cards add a sentence or two to express your thanksfulness for this person.  Here are a few of the people who may really appreciate your thanksgiving cards.

  • A teacher from the past who was special to you
  • Someone who is special to your child--perhaps a coach, scout leader or teacher
  • A relative who lives a distance away and you haven't seen for a while
  • A friend from your past
  • A friend or relative in a nursing home
  • An elderly person or one that is ill

I know there are many more people you could add to the list and I challenge you to pick out a two or three and surprise them with a special Thanksgiving card.  I have just ordered my cards and plan to send one to an old friend from my school days who lives across the country, one to an elderly aunt and uncle who live in another state, and the last to an elderly lady who use to be in my book club and is now in a nursing home.  Who will be on your list?

Enjoying the Last Colors of Autumn

Autumn is one of my favorite times of the year and photographing autumn color ranks high among my favorite things to do.



Since my retirement several years ago, my husband and I have taken to traveling around the country and timing our travels so that we can make the most of fall colors. 

Fall Season One

 In September we travel to the northern states in the US or to Canada where we can get a first look at fall colors.  The photo here was taken on our trip to the Northeast this fall.  It shows fallen leaves by an old rock wall in Concord Massachusetts.   


Fall Season Two

In October the colors are beautiful in Missouri where we live so we try to stick close to home and enjoy the beautiful midwest falls.  Here is a photo taken at a lake near our house. 

Fall Season Three

Now it is November and we are enjoying our last bit of fall as we traveled south to visit our daughter and family in Atlanta.  The colors through Kentucky and Tennessee were gorgeous as we headed south.  My daughter's yard is full of beautiful colors.  Here are a couple of the shots I got early this morning in their back yard.

After taking the photos, I like to make them into products to offer in my Zazzle store.  Here are a couple of the autumn photo items that are available at Zazzle/mbgphoto
