One of the best things that's come from this whole infertility journey that we've been on are the relationships I've made with so many women, and the outpouring of support that has come from so many corners.  I had no idea when I first started blogging about our issues & sharing our personal story on social media that there would be such a vast support system of women who are facing the same challenges, many much worse than my own.  I would never have the chance to connect with these wonderful ladies if we weren't faced with what we are so I am thankful in a way that we were dealt this card.  I never knew how much my family, friends, and even many acquaintances would reach out to show their support.

I've received countless gestures from fellow bloggers and TTC sisters who are willing to give their left over supplements (thanks Beth!), I received the TTC Exchange care package from Heather, an encouraging gift from a friend & co-worker, and a greeting card from a fellow blogger and infertility sister offering some inspirational words to help cheer me up.  I am so grateful and so thankful for these gestures, they mean so much!  

I was raised to write thank you cards whenever I was given a gift.  I used to roll my eyes at my mom when I was a teenager and she would have me write them after my graduation party or after a birthday party to everyone who gave me a gift, now I'm so thankful that she taught me that.  I have a whole slew of fun thank you cards that I keep around because you never know when you will need to send one.  I hand wrote every single one of our thank you's after our wedding.  Thank you cards are a simple gesture of gratitude.  

I received an email from Treat by Shutterfly I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to send some really amazing thank you's out to those who have been so sweet & supportive of our journey.  What I love about Treat is the convenience.  They will actually send the card for you, you can add a stamp and everything, or if you're like me, and you want to add a handwritten touch, you can have it sent to yourself!  Their website is very easy to navigate and their cards are so easy to customize.  You can add your own message, you can change fonts, colors, photos.  You have the freedom to do pretty much whatever you want.

Another plus is that if you're not a planner, or you just completely forgot and you need to send a card in a pinch, you can send a digital version of the card. If you realize that it's someones birthday or anniversary and you don't have time to go buy a card and get it in the mail, you can go to their website and design your own custom card to be sent directly to the recipient via email!

I am absolutely smitten with the way that my cards turned out. I love how personalized you can make them. I want to take a minute to thank Treat for allowing me to have so much fun with their service.  I'm so thankful to everyone who has supported me on this journey, and I'm so happy to be able to thank them in this way!
