Some folks are just meant to be together.
Like Romeo and Juliet…
or Johnny and Baby…
Or Bo and Hope.
But just because you’re meant to be together doesn’t mean life will be all puppies and rainbows and butterflies.
Love is hard sometimes.
Marriage takes work, y’all. Life interferes. Work gets stressful. Kids come along and try to sabotage your quality time together. Sometimes outside forces are at work against you. No matter if it’s feuding fathers forbidding the relationship or Stephano DiMera kidnapping the whole family and hiding them on his private island, sometimes stuff just happens.
But, hopefully, true love always wins. Valentine’s Day is the day we celebrate our loves, so this week I want to celebrate mine.
I’ve said it before, but I am not a fan of greeting cards. Big, bulky paper greeting cards cause me guilt. First of all, they are completely overpriced. Then I have guilt if I keep them all because they clutter up my life. But I also have guilt if I toss them in the trash because someone spent money on that card. Not to mention all those trees that get sacrificed for all that paper. And for the record, I do toss most of them in the trash because I’m trying hard to declutter my life and holding onto a 35 year old stash of Hallmark cards in my closet gets kinda cumbersome. But today? Today I propose we stop the madness.
I’m working hard to pioneer the new trend of sharing your love for your honey in the digital age by using a simple iPad app and the internet. Stop killing all those trees and get on board with using the Adobe Voice iPad app to customize and create virtual greeting cards for your loved ones. If you’re a private person you can email it to your Valentine directly, or if you’re wanting your professions of love to go viral then you can upload it straight to facebook or twitter for all the world to see. Your call.
Check out this sappy creation I made for my family to give you an idea of what can be done for your Valentine’s Day card:

I got you beat, Beth! I have a stash of 51 year old Hallmark and other cards. I can’t bring myself to throw them away. There must be some great idea on Pinterest of what to do with all those cards!
“Stuff happens” – Man you crack me up! I love this video too XOXO
