Spring into the Celebration! #CleverSpring

Springtime signifies many things including a new beginning and the arrival of warmer weather. (Or so us Pacific NW’ers hope!)

Spring is really a time that tells us to start gearing up for celebrations!
On my calendar I see that coming up we have Easter, a 6th birthday, Mother’s Day, and who know’s what else will come up. These are all your typical celebrations.

However, I have a special something on my calendar that is going to require the celebration of all celebrations. An accomplishment that I plan on yelling from the rooftops and even mailing announcements to those that won’t be able to hear me when I yell. ­čÖé

You see, I set a goal for myself to run 5 races in 5 months. I know that in order to continue keep myself running, which I started the first of the year, I need to have something I’m working towards. A race each month is just the thing that keeps me tying the laces of my running shoes and hitting the pavement.

I’ve already run my first 5k in March and my second is actually tomorrow. It’s appropriately called the “Discover Spring 5K”. Through July I have races on the calendar and if I can truly make it through all of them I am going to want to tell as many people as possible. That’s where Shutterfly comes in!

Shutterfly has all kinds of announcements that are just the thing to get a celebration going. Did I mention they are customizable? So even if I pick one of their graduation announcements or birth announcements, I can alter it into just the thing to announce my 5 in 5 Accomplisment! My plan is to pick a design that allows for 5 photos and have a photo of myself at the end of each of my races.

I want to know what you are celebrating this Spring! And to help you out I’m giving away a code for $50 free announcement cards from Shutterfly!

RULES FOR ENTRY (mandatory entry):
It’s simple. Just leave a comment telling me what you plan to do to celebrate Spring this year and what you will use your cards for.

    I plan to celebrate spring by getting my yard ready… perhaps a spring hello or mid year photo would be a fun way to use the announcements??

  3. Plan on going to my moms this weekend and having some quality time with her and the family. I would probably use them for JD’s birthday .
