Welcome to the blog, "Love Is In The Mail!"
Hi, this is Allyn.
It is hard to believe that we are already six months into this business. We have had so much fun so far and have so many plans for the years ahead. Love365 Cards is about loving others well through written notes. As we’ve built and launched this company, one thing has continued to surprise me. This company, Love365, is the thing I was meant to do. I imagine my sister, Amanda, feels the same way. I didn’t realize how “just right” it was for me. It was just a need we saw and something that would be fun for my sister and me to do together. But over the last six months, I’ve noticed how often I do use notes and letters in my life and not necessarily in the “usual” ways. Cards and mail can be so much more than just cards and mail. They are keepsakes. Clues. Windows to the past.
With this in mind, I sat down recently to see if I could come up with a list of topics so we could start a blog for Love365. I had no doubt I could come up with a couple of ideas but that wouldn’t get us very far. So, I sat down over lunch one afternoon and started brainstorming. In five minutes I had 25 ideas! By the time I finished eating, I had just over 30. Jaw drop. I was shocked. Because I love cards and I have always loved others through notes, letters, & cards, in sometimes unique ways. And I am so excited to share that with you, whoever you are…
So, stay tuned. Check back. We’ll be posting twice a month to start. I’ll try to keep them in the ‘short-but-sweet’ category. They may not always be grammatically correct- some on purpose and some because I just never could master commas (I can just hear my mom’s red pen twitching already!), but hopefully you’ll come away with a better appreciation for cards and new ideas to help you love your people well. Everyday.
Talk to you soon!
Allyn (& Amanda)
