Sometimes you have friends come over to make gingerbread cookies.

I love these ladies.

I hope we make this an annual (if not monthly) occurrence. Too good!

And if you want to see the WHOLE crazy night. There’s a video. Yep.




Fancy Paperie: A Stationery Review

December 14, 2015

IMG_9564I was lucky enough to get reached out to by a wonderful stationery-maker, Amanda from Fancy Paperie. She asked if I’d like to receive some of her products in exchange for a review and I was like YES PLEASE.

I have been really into vintage floral patterns lately, so when I saw her wrapping paper with dark florals I once again was like ALL THINGS YES. It’s gorgeous. Really, though. I can’t wait to use it for christmas presents. Gonna look great under my tree and on my new tree skirt (15$ I’m not complainin’). Another thing I got pretty psyched about was her greeting cards with dinosaurs on them. Hello more floral! SO great. I love them. I want to display them on my wall. I think I might.  I’ll let the pictures show you what I’m talkin’ bout.IMG_9569 IMG_9571 IMG_9573 IMG_9574

Gorgeous stuff, Amanda!

If you visit Amanda’s etsy shop, you can find all her cute thing including those great floral gift tags pictured above ^^^. Did I mention I like floral things? No? 😉

The nieces.

December 8, 2015

There is something about blurry photographs that make me pause and look again. I don’t know if it’s a nostalgic thing, or if it’s more about how candid the photo looks. How you can’t grab a still, but you can capture the motion. I like it. I had the honor of photographing my nieces a couple weekends ago. It was fun, and I enjoyed the outtakes more than the posed ones!

As you do. 😉
