If your mom is even half as amazing as mine you’ve struck gold. The lady who birthed me is my #1 fan, my best friend, and my anchor in this sometimes crazy world. My grandmother has also been a huge influence on me, as well as my aunt. So don’t just celebrate your mother on Mother’s Day, let all of the incredible women in your life know just how appreciated they truly are.

You still have nine days left to be a part of National Card + Letter Writing Month, you know, if that’s your kind of scene. It’s definitely mine, because there’s only one better thing you can find in a mailbox than a card or letter. (Money.)
I’ve been a fan of Egg Press for years now, and their latest line – Social Preparedness Kit – is full of great graphics and a few cheeky words. It’s all a reminder to step away from all the screens in your life and enjoy the connections in your life. Send a note or make a list of possibilities, just make room for a little magic.

How is it possible that Valentine’s Day is only two weeks away??? It’s the one holiday that sneaks up on me every single year. While I’m currently playing the singles game I still love to pull together something sweet for friends and loved ones – because who says that Valentine’s Day has to be purely about hearts-coming-out-of-your-eyes love? Here are fourteen valentines for you to share with both your lovah and your loved ones.
