I have a dream…

On today, the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington and Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech, we pause to reflect on his vision for America–how far we’ve come, and just how far we still need to go in order to ensure equality for all.

Life is Beautiful…

Kathy Davis card by American Greetings

Life is filled with so many beautiful moments, big and small… don’t you agree? Sometimes all it takes is a moment to stop, look around, and breathe it all in.

One of our favorite things about cards by Kathy Davis (like the one shown above!) is the fresh, expressive watercolors paired with inspirational messages. It’s the perfect “breathing room” to pause and reflect on all of the gifts we’ve been given.

You can find these designs (and many more!) in a store near you.
