Last year, I made a New Years Resolution to be a better friend.
It’s easy to get caught up in our day-to-day routine and forget about those people we care about most.
There’s dishes to do. Laundry to wash. Errands to run. Projects to tackle.
It’s a lot. And relationships are easy to get lost in the shuffle.
So I made my resolution and tried my best to carry it out. I didn’t always succeed. Lots of times the routine won out. But I keep trying. Even a year and a half later.
So in the spirit of friendship, I decided to put together some care packages for a few girlfriends of mine. Just a few small things to let them know that I was thinking about them.
Who doesn’t love happy mail?
I decided to send them Sunshine in a Box. So everything in the package had to be yellow.
I bought Swedish Fish, yellow jelly beans, bubbles, Juicy Fruit, a picture frame, lemon hand soap, and earrings. Nothing fancy. Nothing expensive. Everything cost less then $1.50 each. I just wanted fun things to brighten the girls’ day.
I packaged it all up in a tuck-top box.
I added the cute little sunshine printables I found here.
Then I added a card telling each girl how much I valued her, closed it up, and decorated the box. Happy mail should be pretty! 🙂
So what are you waiting for? Send someone you love a box of sunshine to brighten their day! 🙂
