“To send a letter is a good way to go somewhere without moving anything but your heart.“ Phyllis Theroux

Over these past few months staying connected has been a challenge with a lack of human interaction due to COVID-19. I have moved from the city I have lived for the past three years, as have most of my closest friends. As great as technology is in my daily life, it can be so draining to use to connect after days on end of working remotely. Sometimes you just need to disconnect and relax. In times like these, I believe it is important to remember that disconnecting from technology does not mean disconnecting from the ones you care about most. Oftentimes something as simple as sending a card can mean so much more than a zoom call, or a text checking in. 

Writing a letter is intentional, it takes time, and is special. That’s one reason I love and am partnering with Hallmark. Hallmark has cards for every occasion, relationship, and style making it easy to say exactly what you want.  It makes connecting with your loved ones extra meaningful and special. Letters can brighten up even the worst days by saying you matter in a tangible but simple way. 

I began sending cards during my time in college to my friends who were far away on special occasions like the holidays, valentine’s day, or just because. When I visit their homes and apartments soon after sending I’ve seen the cards on their refrigerator and it makes me smile and feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

I try and keep all my most important cards I receive tucked away somewhere special and safe. When I am feeling down I go back and look to find my favorites and they always give me the warm fuzzies. I encourage you to do the same, as well as send your own Hallmark cards to close friends
