Oooh, love this…

Danni of oh, hello friend made this lovely envelope book for her sweetie after a particularly rough week.  Not only is it absolutely beautiful on its own, but it's such a sweet concept… exactly the kind of thing I'd love to do, if there were only a couple more hours in the day.  I'm including a couple of photos below, but check out the full post right here.

On my way home…

I’m finally on my way home — sitting in the Brussels airport waiting for my flight back to DC.  I’ll get home just in time for the inauguration!  Thank goodness for the long holiday weekend (Inauguration Day is also a holiday for many who work in DC), since I’ve also got a LOT of blog reading to catch up on!

In the meantime, I’m loving these gorgeous appliquéd and ruffled tops and dresses from Anthropologie:

We’re heading up to New Jersey tomorrow to spend the holiday with my side of the family and my grandmother — who turns 93 on Christmas Day!  I’ll be popping in every now and then (including to announce the winner of the Wedding Paper Divas contest!), but wanted to take the opportunity to send you all some warm holiday wishes – I hope everyone has a lovely holiday!

Today I love…

Whew.  What a week!  How is everyone else doing?  Anyone also having a totally crazy week?  I'm still trying to catch up from the last few days, so I thought I'd start off with a little Thursday morning inspiration and a few of my favorite images from this week:
