our Christmas Card

I am running so behind.  

2 more gifts to buy
suitcases to pack
one sewing project
and I am so embarrassed to admit, but our
Christmas cards go in the mail tomorrow!
Hopefully a few people will receive it 
before Christmas... oh well.

Thought I'd share it first
with all of you dear blog friends :)
Wishing you a Merry Christmas
from our home to yours:

well hello!

I apologize for my long absence.  My brain is still fried from finals and my creativity burned up with it.  We have already started our Christmas traveling.  Not far distances, just the usual Cinci to Louisville... back and forth and back and forth. 

Our dear friends, Brittany and Kevin, said "I do" on Saturday evening.  Patrick was a groomsman and we had fun celebrating the whole weekend!  Brittany was a gorgeous bride and the wedding was wonderful!  Congratulations!!  We love you both!

The rest of the weekend, I did some Christmas shopping, met up with my best friends, threw an Engagement party for our friends, Adam and Samantha, visited with family, and did a little wrapping
sidenote: I have been daydreaming of this tasty treat on Christmas morning:

I hope you all are doing well and enjoying Christmas festivities and time with family and friends.  Through all the craziness, I pray we all will find rest in knowing the real reason for celebrating and that we will thank our Father for sending a Savior.

Why am I just now finding this etsy shop?!?!
(probably because I've never procrastinated this much
while I should be studying for 3 more finals!)
So many gorgeous pieces... wow

perfect shoes for new years party?


Vogue 1950's

I just wish I could live in the 1950's
even if just for one day :)
