Dear December…

Today is December 1st in case you weren’t aware. I’ve been hinting at a project coming up and it’s finally here, but first background. I recently found Carrie Fletcher and Emily Diana Ruth on YouTube and they both do a month of letters to their favorite times of the year. Emily started with her letters to July and Carrie does letters to Autumn. I found all of their videos beautiful and creative that I wanted to do something along the same lines, so I chose December.

I didn’t choose December because it’s my favorite time of the year,  chose it because I want to like things that I don’t usually like and December is included in that. So in effort to reignite the likeness (I don’t like the word love in this case quite yet) I have for making little videos and inspiration from two seemingly amazing people I have decided to write letters to December and I hope if you want, you will watch and enjoy them.

If anyone is interested in joining the project you can click the contact button or just comment below and I’ll get in touch with you. If you want to film a video and letter send it to me in advance and I’ll post it. I already have a lot of days planned but if you have any of your own ideas I would like to hear/see them so I would always be willing to change my own plans to accommodate someone else’s if it’s better than my own.

Make sure you also check out the videos that inspired me.

Thanks for the support in advance, that is if anyone chooses to support me. Also I kept this a secret from EVERYONE except Lindsay but she probably forgot anyway so I’m really impressed with myself.

Rereading this post it sounds like I’m not excited about it, but I am. I just am not in the mood to express enthusiasm for some reason.

    Nice video, Mary! I like how you had the camera looking out the window! What you wrote about the other seasons being harsh was really well said and I also liked how you focused on the writing in your notebook (I like little things like that!) It was also pretty cool to hear your voice since we only talk through emails and our blog, lol. I hope you know that you can talk to me whenever you need!

    Wow, this project is so cool. Never thought of doing videos with letters to different months

      Thanks! I saw it and loved it, I wish I would’ve had the idea myself!

    Love this idea! You should totally do one every month :)
    Also 70 degree weather in December? I’m jealous. We’re freezing in the cold and snow here in Minnesota!

      I hate that it is 70 degrees. I think I’m going to try and do one of these videos at the end of every month since I’ve kinda quit. Now it’s 45 and raining, last night it was 30 and freezing rain. Maryland has the most bipolar weather I’ve ever experienced and where I grew up is only 2 hours north of here!
