Hello!

When you open your mailbox, what do you typically see? Bills, credit card offers, bank statements? If the contents of your mail look anything like mine, you see a vast sea of… white. White business envelopes, white card envelopes, white stamps, white fliers, white white white. And the occasional tan or beige thrown in there for good measure.

Even when you go to pick out a card for someone, have you ever noticed the majority of envelopes are pastel colors? Pale pink, light yellow, sky blue. Nothing bold and bright and worth celebrating.
But go shopping again around Valentine’s Day or Christmas—holiday seasons—and what do you find? Piles upon piles of RED ENVELOPES!

Now maybe I’m alone in my excitement over red envelopes, but there is just something so magical and special about them. They’ve always held a soft spot in my heart. They are out of the ordinary and unexpected; delightful and exciting; romantic and unnecessary… yet, oh so worth treasuring!

Red envelopes aren’t used on an every-day basis—and maybe that’s why I love them so much. When you receive one, you know there is something special in store for you. Something that could turn an ordinary day into an extraordinary one. Something to add a little sparkle to your eye and a little bounce to your step.

So begins the idea of this blog... I'm considering it my red envelope to you. My way of contributing something unexpected, delightful, inspiring and even magical to your day. It's simple, typical and practical with an added special touch-- the epiphany of a red envelope. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy what I have to share.

Hi! Don't know you - but I am so with you on this envelope thing. I love seeing that special little colorful envelope poking out among the sea of white. I received one today actually - made my evening! Looking forward to what you have to share.

Well, that is just amazing! I would have never known the meaning. Your title and YOU are both just so awesome! :) I've never thought about that, but it's so true. You just gave me the Holiday warm and fuzzies inside!

Thank you so much for sharing! :)
