Forever Young…

Forever Young...

Whether you’re 35 or 105, the single most important thing to remember is that your chronological age is only a number, plain and simple. In fact, the widespread belief that there’s a peak or prime of life is, in our humble opinion, utterly archaic. Instead, embrace the idea that you can be full of vitality, passion, and adventure at any age!

All of us here at Blue Mountain fully believe this, which is why we were so thrilled to recently celebrate “As Young as You Feel Day.” This fun holiday made us realize that we should all focus on enjoying our lives to the fullest each and every day. And suddenly, our curiosity was piqued. “What specifically makes people feel young?”

So we asked our own Blue Mountain team, and here are some of their answers:

  • Taking a bubble bath
  • Buying a pair of funky-colored, high top sneakers
  • Putting temporary streaks of color in my hair
  • Dipping chocolate cookies into milk
  • Riding a Ferris Wheel
  • Joining the neighborhood kids for a game of hopscotch
  • Doing a cartwheel
  • Singing in the shower at the top of my lungs
  • Dancing the night away
  • Giggling (which can be easily achieved by sending one of our eCards to someone. Send one from our Talking Collection or our Funny Collection today!)

Our conclusion? Never stop enjoying yourself! In fact, treat each single day as the prime of your life. Keep active. Stay positive. And have fun. Lots of it. After all, no matter our age, we should all feel young at heart, shouldn’t we?

And now, dear reader, we’d love to know…“What makes you feel young?” Please leave your answer as a comment below. Don’t be shy now!

Irish Blessings

Irish Blessings

Whether you were born Irish or not, everyone turns a wee bit Irish
on St. Patrick’s Day.  This day of fun and frolic is perfect for sharing
heartfelt wishes with family and friends, and what better way
to get all those eyes smilin’, than by adding a fun or heartfelt
Irish blessing to your St. Patrick’s Day greeting.

We’ve collected some favorites that are perfect for adding to your
eCard wishes.  And some of us here at BlueMountain.com are going
to literally put these Irish words in the mouths of our St. Patrick’s Day Talking eCards
for a wonderfully-fun surprise for our friends and family —you should too!

Plus – discover the meaning behind some favorite Irish sayings here!

Classic Blessings:

  • May the road rise up to meet you.
    May the wind be always at your back.
    May the sun shine warm upon your face;
    the rains fall soft upon your fields
    and until we meet again,
    May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

 

  • May you always have…
    Walls for the wind
    A roof for the rain
    Tea beside the fire,
    Laughter to cheer you
    T
    hose you love near you
    And all your heart
    might desire

Heartfelt Blessings:

  • May you always walk in sunshine.
    May you never want for more.
    May Irish angels rest their wings
    right beside your door.

 

  • May you have warm words on a cold evening,
    a full moon on a dark night,
    and the road downhill all the way to your door.

Cute Blessings:

  • May God grant you always…
    A sunbeam to warm you,
    A moonbeam to charm you,
    A sheltering angel,
    so nothing can harm you.

 

  • May you have all the happiness
    and luck that life can hold,
    And at the end of all your rainbows
    may you find a pot of gold.

Friendship Blessings:

  • A special Irish blessing
    From the heart of a friend—
    “May good fortune be yours,
    May your joys never end.”

 

  • May the hinges of our friendship
    never grow rusty.

What to Write…in a talking Halloween ecard

What to Write...in a talking Halloween ecard

What better time than Halloween for a surprising character to deliver a wish or fun hello?Our talking eCards will speak what you type and recite your message with an unexpected flair that will delight everyone you send it to. Our newest lizard talking eCard, “Liquor Treat,” is the perfect Halloween surprise! But if you can’t think of what our pal should say?  Here are some “pun” ideas to get you started:

  • Haven’t talked to someone in awhile? Use some fun word play: “All iguana do is say hi and see how you’re doing!” (don’t worry about sticking strictly to an exact species—have fun with all our leathery friends).

 

  • Wish someone a happy birthday with: “Leapin’ lizards–another birthday? Drinks are on me!”

 

  • Thank someone for something nice they did: “What you did was so nice, I think you rank highest on a scale from one to ten of the nicest people I know!”

 

  • Of course, this is the perfect eCard to  invite your friends out for some drinks with: “Iguana get together for drinks?”

 

  • You could even send this out to several friends for a fun gathering: “Calling all lounge lizards! Let’s meet up at Harry’s Tavern Friday night!

 

  • Of course, you don’t need to use puns at all, as this critter is such a delightful surprise, that no matter what you say he’s sure to entertain!
