Greetings From Around the World

One of the most difficult parts of transitioning from college to the "real world" is not having my best friends around me all. the. time. How do they expect you to go seeing these people everyday - relying on them, eating with them, and enjoying each other's company - to seeing them maybe once every few months…or even few years?! Two of my very best friends are packing up everything they own and moving across the world to teach abroad. I'm so proud of them for doing something so gutsy and hopefully, I'll be joining them on another continent soon! While I'm missing them from the states, I definitely don't want our friendship to disappear. I've already picked out the first of many greeting cards to be sent to them!

I won't say who is receiving which card (they're probably reading this post ;p), but the one's I picked are pretty darn adorable and I think perfect for the intended audience. On the inside of the card, the floral card miss you card states, "Though we may be miles apart, we're just as near as ever, because such happy thoughts will keep up close together." The other card says "You're cute, you're fun, you're lovable, in fact, there's one thing your not…" Then, on the inside it says "here!" I also wrote them a handwritten letter that I slip inside the card, just so it's more personal.

 I picked these two Hallmark Value Cards up from my local Walmart. The great thing about this is that all of these cards are extremely adorable and only cost 97 cents or 47 cents! You can also earn rewards for the Hallmark cards you purchase at Walmart. For every 5 cards you buy, you'll earn a reward!

How do you keep in touch with friends from college?

With Love,


  1. Your friends will be lucky to have you. Very thoughtful.

  2. Such a cute idea! I'm terrrrrible about staying in touch - I love the idea of sending little unexpected cards.

  3. What fun cards and what awesome adventures! It's so hard to have close friends go far away--but so exciting to see where life's adventures will take them and you! #client

  4. I'm obsessed with the cheapie card aisles. One of my besties has a sparkly cupcake card coming her way soon...


  5. How lovely. It's so nice to receive snail mail that isn't a bill :)
