For the longest time, I fought the digital train. eBooks? No thanks. Digital lists? I’m good. But then, inevitably, the convenience of modern technology would win me over. Why do I need a ton of physical books taking up space and gathering dust? Give me an ereader and let me check out books from the library in the middle of the night. Thanks! Give me a list that I can keep on my phone and also on my computer, so I can constantly be reminded how much I have to do (#momlife).

But one thing that I haven’t even thought about in terms of modern technology is the ecard. I mean, I played around with them in the early days, like AOL early days (ask your grandparents, kid) but those where, well, lame. Some silly poorly made GIF with some royalty free music over it and bad font choices displaying your message. Not something that destined to last.

Then, recently, Paperless Post reached out to me to try their service. Paperless Post is a digital card and invitation company that is stepping up the online card game. They have beautiful designs that are customizable and work for a wide variety of needs.

There are so many designs and fun additional things you can do with their customization tools. You can change backdrops, text, fonts, the envelope, the inside of the envelope, etc.! I mean really the list goes on and on.

KIDS' BIRTHDAYS

KIDS' BIRTHDAYS

One thing I do like is that you can schedule when your card or invitation will go out. Since I’m previewing this product with no real immediate need, I wanted to see about maybe doing something for Lazy Baby’s birthday next year. I wish I had known about Paperless Post when I was doing Lazy Baby’s birthday invites back in April, probably would have gone through less stress. Now, I can make it and have the invitations scheduled to go out on a later date! Or get those holiday cards done before the task gets away from me. I LOVE that.

CUSTOMIZING

CUSTOMIZING

I know that these days, I am more likely to have someone’s email address than their actual physical address and I am certain I’m not alone in this. However, if you still want to have your cards/invitations go out IRL, Paperless Post also has a print option.

Anyway, overall, I think this is the future of invitations and mail in general. I wanted to leave you all with some of my favorite designs for a few different occasions.

Thank you so much Paperless post for giving me the opportunity to try out something new and thank you guys for reading! Check them out if you're wanting an online service for your invitations!

There’s no better time to stock up on summertime threads for your kids than Memorial Day weekend. From lived-in tees and tanks to adventure-ready sneakers, here are a few of our favorite picks for your Memorial Day BBQ and beyond. 


Americana Stars Tunic Tee for Girls 

This tunic tee was made for the all-American girl who loves looking cute as much as being comfortable. Its cotton blend material and classic loose fit gives this tee a much-deserved spot on the top of her t-shirt pile. 


Boys’ Play Shoes 

These play shoes were designed with the boy-on-the-move in mind. Whether he’s running through the grass in the backyard or playing a game of hopscotch on the drive way, this shoe is up for anything. 


Stars & Stripes Jersey Tank for Toddlers

It’s stars, stripes, and sunshine when he wears this classic tank. Its soft, garment-washed jersey fabric gives a lived-in feel that feels comfy all season long. The roomy u-neck and arm openings make this tank perfect for easy, breezy summer days that turn into nights.

Bring the fun to your backyard this Memorial Day weekend with yard games for all ages. While you’re grilling up hotdogs and hamburgers, friends and family will be striking up friendly competition – and an appetite. 

Here are a few of our favorite backyard games. 


Wild Gate Sports Stars and Stripes Cornhole Tailgate Toss

You can’t beat a classic! Not only is cornhole a universally appealing game, it’s also easy to teach new or young players – less time teaching, more time playing. Plus, this set features a stars and stripes design that is perfect for your Memorial Day cookout and other events all summer long. Pull it out again later in the summer for the Fourth of July!


Baden Champions Series Croquet Sets

A croquet set is a summertime staple for backyards large and small. Designed for 2-6 players, we especially like how this set features hardwood mallets with soft rubber grips for comfort. It even comes with a complete croquet rulebook, perfect for new players or rusty ones. 


Classic Ladderball Game 

If you’re looking for a new backyard challenge, this ladderball game fits the bill. Friends and family will appreciate the easy learning curve to this game, but the extra skill involved to getting the golf tosses around the ladders.
