Well, dear reader, according to the comic strip Mutts, created by Patrick McDonnell, which is an animation that I adore (and one that I have sighted in a previous post that can be found by clicking here), we are in "half time", and, while I appreciate this animation (and often the sentiment that goes with it); I do not think "half-time" officially begins until the end of June, as that is the time the calendar year is half over, or perhaps, and maybe even more important, is the time of the onset of the remaining part of the year, and a chance to begin again.
I have had soirées in the past to celebrate the half-year mark (as evidenced in a previous post honoring last year's half-year mark, which you can refer to by clicking here), and many of my clients have found the line of invitations that I create (and that preserve a moment in time) quite suitable and elegant for such an occasion. Many selections are included in the store-front pages of my web-site where purchase information is also available.
Whether today, the first day of June, or the end of the month signify "half-time", the month of June and all the wonderful celebrations (and reasons to send cards —which can also be found within the aforementioned links — to those near and not so dear to you) are on the way. This year they include ones associated with religious observations such as the Jewish celebration of Shavout and the Christian celebration of Pentecost, as well as many confirmation celebrations. Some other festivities in June that are enhanced by sending cards and invitations include graduations, Father's Day, and the Summer Solstice, so I encourage you to "get out and reach out" with my unique snail-mail forms of communication, and roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer!
