Valentine’s Day City Swap Recap


Another successful city swap and I figured I might as well recap it on Valentine’s Day! You can see the card that I sent above and below you’ll see all the participants submitted photos! I had 88 people participate and hope to do another swap this summer! Stay tuned.


Do you have any plans for Valentine’s Day? Adam and I never celebrate BUT I found a funny zombie-themed card (so I had to buy it) and we are seeing a play about Mark Rothko (we didn’t realize it was ON Valentine’s Day) but either way we’re excited.



A weekly email where I share things that made me stop and consider: opinions, other articles on the internet, trying new experiences, and products you might like to buy.

    I’m glad to hear that zombie cards are still all the rage. This is my favorite v-day card I got for January a few years ago:

      Ah that card is killer (no pun intended). I found one that just read “I love you like zombies love brains.” But as Adam pointed out – they don’t JUST love brains. haha

    This looks like it was such a fun swap! Sorry I missed out, but I hope you keep planning them. :)

    I have no plans for Valentine’s Day; going to a yoga class after work and hanging out with my boyfriend in the evening. I really wouldn’t have it any other way!

    I LOVED my card sent from Nashville (upper right hand corner)! It was handmade, super sweet, and such a fun surprise in my mailbox. Thanks for organizing, Allie!

    Is the play you are seeing ‘Red’ ? Sean and I saw that last year and we loved it! You will have to let me know what you think!
    We are headed to Columbus this weekend to visit fam! :)

      Yes!! Except we totally booked it on the wrong day (Valentine’s Day) so we requested a refund from Ticketmaster. They never confirmed the refund so we went to print our tickets and they wouldn’t! So we call Ticketmaster…they canceled our tickets without confirming and so we didn’t go. But we want to go to a different showing and I’ll let you know! I hope you had fun in Columbus!!
