You Matter: Thanks stranger, that's always nice to hear!




We just got this random envelope full of cards saying, "You Matter" today, and we knew we had to share it with our readers.

We have no idea who sent them to us (no return address), or the motivations behind the gift (no letter) but we're going to take this as a sign that you're picking up what we're putting down, y'all. We think you matter too!

If you're the lovely-stealthy person who sent them to us, let us know!
