Happy Weekend!

Well, I meant to write my usual weekly round up last Friday, but we decided to take advantage of the Veterans Day weekend and escape DC for a few days at my dad’s house in New Jersey (boy, did we need it!). But honestly, despite my intentions I’m not sure I actually could have written my usual post last week. I try to keep a positive tone here, and I think I needed more time to wrap my head around everything that has happened in our country in the last couple of weeks. I rarely discuss political issues here, but I couldn’t move forward without acknowledging that this has been a very difficult time for many of us, myself included. I posted this on Instagram the day after the election, when I felt the need to be quiet, to listen and process. Two weeks later, I’m still feeling pretty unsettled, and I want to send a giant virtual hug to everyone out there who might be feeling the same way. But life moves forward and this too shall pass, and in the meantime I’ll do my best to bring a smile to your face by sharing beautiful stationery that helps celebrate life’s special occasions and encourages us to connect with each other in a meaningful way.

Happy Weekend!

Happy Friday everyone! It’s November! How is it November??? Daylight Savings Time comes to an end this weekend (ugh), so we’ll fall back an hour on Saturday night. Have you grabbed your new phone or desktop wallpaper yet? You can find them right here! But in the meantime…

Happy Weekend!

Yay Friday! Do you all have fun pre-Halloween plans this weekend? Our neighborhood is hosting a big Halloween block party for all the kids in the area tonight, but official trick or treating is always on Halloween proper in DC, so we’ll have to wait until Monday for that. But in the meantime…

Happy Weekend!

Happy Weekend everyone! Can you believe Halloween is just over a week away?? Sophie wants to be a fairy for Halloween, which means Alice will also be a fairy since she only ever wants to do the same things as Sophie. But I’m still trying to decide if I want to do something a bit more homemade for their costumes or go with a store-bought costume. We have fairy wings and wands, so I think all we’d really need is a dress? For those of you that are parents: do you also dress up with your kids for Halloween? I don’t see many parents in costume in our neighborhood, but I think it would be fun to do a family costume someday! Ah, well. In the meantime…
