Blog Link Up: Project Inspire

Hollie Takes Notes

When I saw that Chelsea and Hollie were doing a link-up with hand written snail mail cards, I was IN!! I love sending cards to friends and I love receiving notes. I mean, it really is the simple things in life. The point of this swap is to send a sweet message in your note, to help motivate, encourage, or inspire your swap partner.

Lucky for me, I was partnered with Chelsea herself, of Life is a Sunset! Woohoo! I've been reading Chelsea's blog for a longtime now and I feel like I don't just know her, but KNOW her, y'know? We comment on each other's posts all the time like we're neighbors and have emailed back and forth about everything from shopping to the hard life stuff. She is just such a sweetheart and is so honest and inspiring. Being a blogger can be really daunting and we tend to just post about the rainbow and sunshine parts of our lives, but life can really suck sometimes. Being honest about the the sucky parts can be so difficult dealing with them alone, but sharing it can be even harder. Whenever I find someone who is as real, honest, inspiring, and has so much beauty as Chelsea, I just can't stop learning more about them. I know one day we're definitely going to meet IRL, but until then, blogging and emails will have to work!

Chelsea sent me the darndest cutest card and notes ever! I couldn't get over how cute she decorated them either! Hello glitter, come to mama! Her message was so meaningful and personal too, I've read and re-read it a dozen times. Thank you again Chelsea for your kind words and friendship!

Getting notes like this really warms the heart and lift your spirits. Life isn't fair, but having good friends who bring a smile to your face, and a laugh to your life make it so much easier!
