A couple years ago my mom and I were having a mother-daughter weekend in San Francisco and we decided to go vintage shopping on Haight Street. After sifting through lots and lots of gems (and finding a gorgeous Marc Jacobs coat), we decided to take a little break, rest our feet, and get some coffee. We meandered into a quaint little shop conjoined with a hotel, which also sold these awesome post cards with inspirational quotes.
I found one that I couldn’t pass up; something about it really resonated with me: “Isn’t it a co-incidence that you and I are both alive at the same time!” This particular post card was apart of a huge series of “pot-shots” by Ashleigh Brilliant.
I’ve had it displayed on my momento bulletin board where I have little keepsakes from fun and meaningful events in my life and noticed it again the other day. I love that the message is both sweet and thought-provoking…
…because isn’t it? Isn’t it a lovely coincidence that you and I are alive at the same time?
