Love is in the Air…


Love is in the air…

While I was in the grocery store, I happened down the card aisle as I love cards and saw the sea of pinks and reds!  Ahhh…Valentine’s Day is coming ~ which of course, brought a huge smile to my face because I love sending out love and this is the holiday for just that!

How do you feel about Valentine’s Day?  Is it the holiday that you love (pun intended!) or is the one that you’d rather skip for personal reasons?  Do you feel it’s a lovers only occasion or are you like me and think that it’s the perfect time to send out love to everyone that you care for in your life?  You see, I’ve always been the type of person who wants you to know how much I love you because I never want any regrets.  In fact, I make sure when my boys leave everyday for school and my hubby goes off to work, that I kiss them all goodbye and tell them that I love them.  I just can’t help it ~ it’s just the way I’m wired!

I’ve told you how I’ve reached out with my cards to others and how I’ve said what I wanted to say without worries of silence on the other end of the phone ~ I’ve reconnected with family click here to read   with whom I’d grown apart through my cards and healed relationships…and hopefully I’ve made others’ days with a surprise card in the mail amidst the bills and junk mail.  You know how that feels don’t you?  That happy surprised feeling when you see that envelope in the mailbox ~ it’s the one you open first because you want to know what it says ~ it’s a priceless feeling which is why I send a card everyday!  I want everyone to get that special smile on their face!

How about you?  What keeps you back from sending cards?  Don’t know what to say?  Hate spending $5 or more for a card which doesn’t say what you want?  Do you find that you buy a card but never send it because you can’t find a stamp or the right address?  Or is it that you can’t find a card that you like?  Do you speak French, Portuguese, German, Italian or Spanish and want to write in your language but find that it’s difficult to find cards?

I have the perfect solution for you ~ you can now send a card from anywhere in the world to anywhere in the world!  You can send a card from your iPhone or android phone or you can send it from your computer ~ all you need is wifi which means you can be on the beach or out at the soccer fields and send a card!  We have over 16,000 cards in our card catalog or you can design you own in less than 10 minutes.  You can use what is written inside the card and/or add your own sentiment in your own language!  You can write in your own handwriting font or choose from our many different ones!  You can sign your name in your own handwriting as well!  You can add as many pictures to your card as you’d like and even attach a video via a QR code to make your card interactive!  There’s an online address book which also works as a personal assistant reminding you of upcoming special birthdays as well!

In 10 minutes, you can find a card, write your heartfelt message, even add a gift, gift card or even Mrs. Field’s cookies, click SEND and viola!  Your card is sent whenever you wish ~ you can schedule your card and gift to be sent up to a year in advance!

And the best part is that your card, even with all the pictures you’d like to put in it and even a video if you wish would never cost you more than $2 plus postage which is .46!  And yet, your recipient gets a real card in the mail and not an e-card from you!

Just click here!  The account is free and you only pay for the cards you want to send!  Who needs to hear from you this Valentine’s Day?  What are you waiting for?  Just try it ~

You have nothing to lose, but LOVE to gain!

What is we all sent love out everyday…imagine what a wonderful world this would be!

Happy Birthday Sissy!

Sister Every year that passes, I learn so much from you.

You are a great inspiration in my life, and I wish you the happiest of Birthdays.

Today is my only sister’s birthday…Happy Birthday AAngel!

I want to dedicate today’s post to AAngel as without her birth, I would have been a very lonely only child.  My sissy has brought me plenty of love, laughter and camaraderie as only sisters can share.  We’ve had our moments where we weren’t as close and we’ve had a few when we didn’t agree.  But for the most part, we’ve been close and we know that we can count on the other when the chips are down.  And for that, I am truly grateful.

I remember when my sister was born as I am three years older than she is.  My parents bought me a baby doll to love so that I would have a baby like my Mom.  However, as soon as AAngel arrived at the house, I put that fake baby doll aside and held the live baby my Mom brought home and called her my own…and it’s been that way ever since.  Much to my sister’s chagrin, I’ve been her second Mom her whole life.  I can’t help it…she came into my life and I just wanted to be her Mom…I wanted to protect her, to love her and to take care of her.  And for much of her life, that’s the way it was…but then something special happened…the tables turned.  She became the caretaker of me.  She began being my Mom and mothering me when I needed it.  There have been so many times she has taken care of me in a Mom-like way ~ times when she’s called and I’ve burst into tears for one reason or another and she’s listened with love as only a sister can.  I hope she feels the same as I do ~ that I am so grateful for her…her love, honesty, sisterhood ~ that I’m so proud of her…she’s a great Mom to 3 boys, is successful in whatever she puts her mind to whether it be PTA President or working part-time as a successful sales rep, gives of her time and heart to those who need a little extra care and is always ready to help whenever I need her.  I enjoy her company ~ she’s great fun and always brings light wherever she goes.  She is beautiful both inside and out ~ truly, she is beautiful.  AAngel is the only person who understands our family dynamic as she’s been there with me throughout our lifetimes and it’s her strength, determination and wisdom on which I rely ~ which I hope she can say the same about me.

I have the privilege today to be able to enjoy a birthday lunch with her and our Mom which I think is special.  We’re lucky that we live within an hour’s drive of each other so that we can see each other during the holidays and whenever we want!

So, this post is for you AAngel…

May All of Your Birthday Wishes come true this year!  You deserve it!

Much love and appreciation to you! xoxo

Below is a bunch of cards that came up when I typed in SISTER in my SendOutCards account…there are even cards in French and Spanish to send as well…SOC (SendOutCards) makes it easy for me to choose a card, write my heartfelt message to my sister, even put pictures and a video in the card!  I can send her a real gift, a giftcard, even Mrs. Field’s cookies!  Once I press SEND, her card is printed, stuffed into an envelope, addressed, sealed, stamped and mailed for me within 24 hours (or I can schedule it for delivery up to a year in advance)…but the best part?  Her card cost less than $1 and yet it’s in my own handwriting!  How amazing is that?

I included a few of the cards I found under SISTER ~ there are even Step-sister cards as well!

Do you have special birthday coming up?  Need a card?  Want to try it?  Let me know!
