We leave tomorrow for a much-needed vacation break. No blog posts planned for the rest of the week, but will be posting to Instagram lots as usual. You can follow along with our adventures over there this week.

Happy Valentine's Day and President's Day weekend! xoxo

Swimsuit is Victoria Secret, skirt and denim vest are H&M, shoes are Nordstrom Rack. 


Last weekend (and some of last week) from top left:

1. My beloved glitter heels. Worn for so many holiday parties throughout the past three years. Broke them out again last weekend and they never disappoint.

2. Shipping out the last of the holiday orders. Thank you for all your purchases! The shop will remain open but shipping is closed for Christmas. All orders will begin shipping again on January 2nd.

3. Pretty shop window at a pop-up event with my friend Erika.

4. West Elm sale finds. Love their throws, and am hoping to use that monogrammed ornament year-round on our gallery wall.

5. Just your average mail day in December. Thank you to every postal worker out there! Deliveries are insane in December. 

6. Throwback to our San Francisco trip last summer. The dreamiest dollhouses.

7. From the #petitejoys tag by @gabriellahoell. This little group of instagramers is growing like crazy. Join in and add your photos to the hashtag!

8. Hot Chocolate with whipped cream and sprinkles. Perfect December dessert.  

9. A butternut squash soup. Hoping to share the recipe here soon.

10. I shipped out all our Christmas cards! So much work, but so worth it. Will reveal more details on the blog next week.

11. Shorter days mean more hours of candlelight. Lighting them has become an evening ritual that I so look forward too.

12. Trimming the tree. Sweet December traditions. 

Hope your holiday season is going well! 

Thanksgiving Weekend in Review

From top left: 

1. Addressing Christmas cards is my life right now. So. Many. Addresses. But this my favorite part of the whole processing, addressing and thinking about all of our family and friends all over the world. Love that they all feel a little closer at Christmastime. 

2. Christmas tree hunting. Best ever this year with a gift from Swansons Nursery, a free tree! Loved their selection AND the fact that they have trees in a covered greenhouse, a necessity in Seattle with unpredictable weather.

3. Another Christmas card sneak peek, the backs. Love that Merry & Bright stamp and our custom address stamp. Both are available here

4. Our tree!

5. At Westward on Saturday night with a few friends. 

6. Tree shopping with Daniel.

7. The two newest pieces to my accessory collection: the striped foldover clutch and metallic gold wristlet, made locally by my friend Erika. Loved getting to see her on Saturday. This is a peek at her workspace. Thankful for my fellow entrepreneur friends, such a gift. 

8. The first snow of the season! This greeted us Saturday morning. As a California, snow will always be novel and magical to me.

9. The shortest days of the year means my house is constantly aglow. Love candles.

10. The GF pumpkin pie my amazing mother in law made for Thanksgiving. Divine.

11. I ran a Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale this weekend. Thank you for all your orders!

12. My responsibility for Thanksgiving: apps. Love a good cheese tray, and those gold West Elm cheese knives.

13. The photo I posted on Thanksgiving of Daniel and I with the caption "Home." Love him, and our second holiday season as newlyweds. 

14. Thanksgiving prep.

15. The monogramed glasses White Elephant Designs sent me. Adore.

SUCH a good weekend. Hope yours was wonderful and cozy too.
