Hello! I'm back from a great trip to the beautiful and relaxing Sapelo Island. It was a week of reading on the porch, watching shrimp boats, taking wild rides on the golf cart through the woods to get to the private (meaning no one else was there!) beach, and eating delicious Gullah food. Pictures and details to come. In the meantime, have a look at these beautiful old calling cards (c. 1860-1890, Jim Linderman collection; source) I've recently come across. Being in a slowed-down state last week reminded me of the importance of unplugging (I say as I type on my laptop) and connecting in person. I love the idea of paying someone a visit and leaving my little card behind. You can barely make out the names on these cards but it's fun to imagine the faces and personalities once associated with them.
