Rekindling Relationships this Spring

The word “spring” has a nice ring to it, don’t you think?

It’s the season where everything turns green again and the season where we get to leave our coats at home and jump on our bikes to go visit friends.

I don’t know about you, but I get a lot of creative inspiration from springtime-- it’s such a time of renewal.  While nature is busy renewing life, I like to spend the season by renewing my relationships with the people I like most.

I’ve got plenty of people to say hi to. I’ve got aunts and uncles I haven’t had a chance to talk to since the holidays. My cousin just had a baby, and a friend of mine opened a new business out of state.

Sure, I always send an email, but it’s much more fun to send a brightly-colored card-- perhaps something to match the colors of spring?

Call me sappy, but a card from my favorite people adds a breath of fresh air to my mailbox, and it’s a reminder to my friends and family that even when life gets hectic, I still have a minute to send them a friendly hello.

Join me in taking a second to reconnect with your family and friends by dropping them some snail mail!  You can even sign up for Card Gnome’s card plans, which gives you the power to send a bunch of cards throughout the year while saving a few bucks along the way. It also cuts out the hassle of breaking out your credit card every time you send a new card-- just pay once and have fun picking out the cards that fit best for your friends and
