I decided to pull back and work on simplifying my life. Cutting down on the amount of blogs I try to stay up-to-date with. Unfollowing unnecessary streams on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. At first I felt bad but you know what? It was the right decision. It felt so good clearing out that space. It allowed for me to focus on things I felt better deserve my attention.
Then, I grabbed a Dove Chocolate (dark chocolate - so good) from our Valentine's Day stash and just as I was about to throw away the wrapper I read the inside:
Umm...could it not have been more obvious? Less technology...more hands-on, personal (to me) effort.
BAM. Just like that it all made sense.
I have several family members and wonderful, dear friends that live out of state. I do my best to communicate with them on a somewhat regular basis, but as we all know, life gets in the way sometimes. Doing little things to reach out and let someone know you are thinking about them is so important in keeping a relationship healthy. So, that's exactly what I intend to do!
I headed to Tiny Prints and found the perfect (for me!) personalized stationary. This simple, classic, pink & initialed set tugged at my heartstrings. I knew it would be perfect for what I wanted to do - send a quick yet thoughtful note to family and friends.

Upon receiving the stationary in the mail I was thrilled! The colors are prefect, the card stock is sturdy and will prevent bleed-through with the gel pens I like to use and the back of the stationary gives the otherwise white-paper a fun pop of color without being overwhelming.
What are some ways you stay in contact with friends and family far away?
