Happy Mail Happy Hour{Gorgeous cards and coffee}

Not so long ago I went to a lovely, lovely gathering. It was a pop-up Happy Mail Happy Hour, where an incredible group of ladies gathered with gorgeous paper and great intentions. Our plan was to sit in a beautiful place and take the time to write letters to those we are grateful for. This was an incredible coincidence, like so many things are, because I had been wanting to send some love to some important people in my life. So we gathered and shared beautiful paper and wrote sweet notes.

The location was gorgeous, the coffee delicious, the macaroons to-die-for, and the company oh-so-inspiring. It felt like such a treat to be out sharing ideas and laughing out loud.

Bobbie, the creator of Happy Mail Happy Hour, brought us all together and was full of life. We talked about the big ideas we want to make happen. We complimented each other’s washi tape stashes. We giggled.

Carla of AlyssaandCarla got down to it and made me roll with laughter. It was so good to reconnect with her! It was my first time meeting Annie, of Montgomery Fest, and I must confess I have fallen a little in love with her blog. Everybody brought gorgeous cards and paper to share. Such. Beautiful. Cards. I was particularly thrilled with the finds from Eggpress and have become incredibly inspired by their Write On Campaign. My plan is to take their challenge of writing 30 cards in 30 days and see how the trickle effect changes my life and my relationships.

The goodies didn’t stop at conversation and paper good either. Lauren spoiled us rotten with Yes to Carrots swag. I kinda couldn’t believe that I went out for coffee and conversation and came home with inspiration, skin care products, and enough stationary to start a small shop. What a lucky girl.

Happy Mail Happy HourA sight that got my attention right away was the large box Katie of Lovely Letters hauled in with her. I was impressed. Not only by her collection of beautiful tools, but by her mad skills. Girl can do some calligraphy. Can’t wait to collaborate on some crafty adventures.

Happy Mail Happy HourIt was a lovely evening that has stayed with me in the weeks that have gone by. Can’t wait to gather this group together again, drink some more coffee, share some more inspiration, and write some more letters! Thank you for a lovely evening ladies!
