Stay Connected and Take the Challenge

Celebrating and spending time with family during the summer is a way to create lasting memories. While this is an enjoyable time, there is still the task of juggling travel, attending birthday parties, or just wanting to pick up the phone to say “hello” to a friend.

Your heart is in the right place.

You want to stay in the moment and think about what’s coming up.

In a perfect world you want to be on top of managing all of life celebratory moments, but let’s face it…….you could use some help

I get it.

I’ve created a 5-Day Write To Connect Challenge to show you how to connect with important people in your life and maintain your schedule at the same time.

No more forgetting to send a handwritten message to a loved one.

The challenge starts August 8th and all of the details will be sent to your inbox. Click here to join.

I am here to share and help you stay connected to those you admire, love and trust.

I look forward to seeing you in the challenge.

Write on,

Happy Birthday:




If this is the month which you were born – I wish you peace, blessings, and good health. Oh, and let’s not forget the part where you dance as if no one is looking.

Send your name in for next month and be sure to receive your birthday shout out. Complete this form and look for your personal birthday shout out.

Show Gratitude, Let Thank You Be Your Attitude

Pictured above is our biggest workshop to date. The feeling of being in a room full of wise men and women is a feeling that I won’t be able to express. I am blessed to have the opportunity to share my vision and also have the help of my community supporting me.

We had two workshops on this day and we have a total of 435 cards to date. We can do it and I know it!

A few cards the seniors made at the workshop on 07/28/2016

Purpose: The purpose of this campaign is to remind people that it doesn’t take a long time to say “thank you”.

More often than not, there is no time to sit down and write out a thank you. Well, I’ve created a way for us to take several minutes out of our day to show gratitude to those who support and protect us in our community.

Mission: Spread the message of how expressing gratitude can bring a community together.

Cards are mailed to our local Police Stations, Fire Departments, ER Staff, EMT workers, Mailmen, and community organizations.

Next workshop will be announced soon.

This workshop is complimentary. Bring your smile, positive attitude and heartfelt message for gratitude. All skill levels are welcome.

Thank you to our sponsors, we would not be able to do this without you.

You’ve Been Thinking About Someone

Girl with Balloons

Have you ever heard a song that made you think of someone? Or how about seeing a sequence of numbers that incorporated a birth date of a close friend or family member? Either way, you have your unique approach of recalling events and special moments in your life.

BUT, remembering is the first step and taking action is a whole’nother ball game. Next is how much time do I have to go to the store, purchase a gift, card, bag or box, bow and get all of this in the mail in time for it to reach the desired location.

Ummm, okay….. this sounds good, but you know there isn’t enough hours in a day to add a shopping experience to your list.  Before you know it, the song you heard or the sequence of numbers you saw all becomes a faint memory. And the next time you speak with Aunt Sally, she asks “did you forget about my birthday?”

What do you say??? (silence)

Here’s a tip that has helped me several times when I need to mail out cards. If I am in the vicinity of a post office or any place that sells stamps, I make a stop and buy a book. I use these stamps only for mailing out cards. Easy peasy.

So, the next time you see Aunt Sally she will thank you for sending her a lovely card that arrived on time and you didn’t miss an opportunity to say Happy Birthday!

I would love to hear how you have incorporated this tip and if it has worked for you.

All the best,
