Connected for the Holidays -

December 03, 2020

Our familia enjoys spreading holiday cheer through letters of love and cards of gratitude this time of year; it’s the perfect way to stay connected to family and friends who aren’t near! It’s our hope that you will join us in writing a letter to a friend (or two!), or someone you hold dear. To make it a little easier for you, we’ve created downloadable stationery and dreamed up some fun prompts to get you started!
