    With life being as busy as it is, and yet our society being as innovative as ever, there is no reason why we shouldn’t automate many different areas of our life. Areas that don’t need our undivided attention, and that can basically run on their own, in order to provide more time for those areas that do need us, and more of us.

    Happy New Year, friends!

    I love the beginning of the year and the fresh start that it gives us. It is a time to evaluate what we have, what we want, and what we are going to do in order to get there.

    IMG_2964

    With the holidays coming up, there are always parties to plan, and people to be in touch with. It also includes a lot of travel, planning ahead, and people being hard to get ahold of. I have always loved the practicality of e-vites, for these reasons. People always have their phones, which means they can get their emails anywhere and anytime these days. However, I never felt like e-vites had the same impact and intentionality as a paper invite. That is until I came across Paperless Post. Read more
