Sending Mail Together Since 2009!

I love sending mail. I send little packages to our neice and nephew on a holiday basis with a few randoms thrown in throughout the year. I send little packages to my step son throughout the year as well. We all know I love sending Gene care packages! I have the sweet Love and Envelopes Club with all of our birthday gals. I send sweet notes to family all the time! Me and mail- we're best friends!

Without fail though, everytime I went to send something to someone I search high and low for their address. I usually find it after digging through facebook messages or several old e-mails.

I decided enough was enough and I ordered my Erin Condren address book:

If I've said it once, I'll say it a thousand times: I am a sucker for gorgeous packaging!
Beneath that gorgeous packaging was a gorgeous little spiral bound note book with fresh pages just waiting to be filled in!

The cover of my address book is the most important to me, and one I know I will love for years! After seeing the planner that Jessica Lynn got, I knew that was the design for me! So I decided to go with words for things I need to pull my address book out for!

change of address, birthday gifts, christmas cards, sweet notes of thanks,
love letters, family updates, mother's days, thinking of yous,
valentines, how are you doings, father's days, care packages,
anniversary cards, party invitations, dropping a line, easter sweets, little hellos

I was so impressed with how nicely those words work with our adorable title:

"The {our last name}s
sending mail together since 2009"

I have to tell you my absolute favorite part of the address book is this little pouch in the back! I also ordered address labels from the shop and they fit down in there along with some sample tags in my order and some stamps! Whenever I am sending letters and packages everything I need is right there in my book!

Not pictured, but another feature I love: in the front there are sheets for every month where you can write out important events (like the main reasons you would send cards every year: birthdays & anniversaries)! I am going to be so organized in sending out notes of love that I'm never missing another birthday or anniversary again!

PS: head on over to Erin Condren and see all the goodies she has to offer! I was not compensated for this post in any way (although goodness, how FUN would that have been?) but genuinely fell in love with this book! It is definitely coffee table worthy- I'll never look for addresses again!

PPS: Want your address to find it's way into my new book for birthday cards? It's never too late to sign up for my chapter of the Love & Envelopes Club! Looking for random notes throughout the year? Send me your name, address, birthday and anniversary to theyoungretiree@gmail.com! I'll make sure a little love finds it's way into your mailbox!
