Handwritten Notes to My Favorite Sisters + Giveaway

“Sisters, sisters, there were never such devoted sisters…” I have some pretty amazing sisters. The kind of sisters who you talk to on a weekly basis. The kind that when you get together it’s an all out party. And the kind who will put on a “Sisters” number with you at your wedding, (I wish I could post the footage). I love it!

But sadly, ever since I moved to Seattle, I don’t get to see them as much as they are all back in Utah. We talk on the phone, play Scramble with Friends, and see each other’s pics on Instagram, but we don’t have as much of that meaningful sister time. That’s why I was happy to partner up with Avant pens, who is encouraging us all to get more personal with our connections and write to our loved ones. Not type or text, but write!

I got out some cards – cutest stationary from Lark Press, gathered my new slick pen thanks to Avant Pens, and started writing a few things to my sissies, telling them how much they mean to me.

This pen writes like magic, no clumping or skipping a step. It even has to option to interchange ink, so you can go from red, to blue, to black in a flash! And you can find them exclusively at Staples. It was perfect for lots of letter writing, as I have 3 sisters. And I hope they love my notes as much as I loved writing them.

Who do you have in your life that needs a little love, a card, something in the mail or even dropped off on their doorstep? Because 6 of you have the chance to win some of these smooth sailing pens yourself, wahoo!!
