Hello Love!
My favorite thing about working for the school system is when my kids are off, I’m off. We’ve throughly enjoyed the first half of our vacation and I’ve taken a little bit of a blogging break to spend some quality time with my family. I hope you all had a very Merry holiday and got and ate lots of goodies! 
While in Ohio a last month, my sweet cousins included me in a photo shoot and my little photographer, RJ was quite jealous that someone else took my photos!  Thanks Ang & Matt!
My sweet friend Amy, over at AmyAnneApparel send me this lovely monogrammed Columbia jacket to model for you and I just LOVE the color combination! Brown is such a good neutral color that looks good with everything!

Hello Love!
Christmas is F I N A L L Y here and I am so glad that I’m almost done with all my shopping. 
I try my best every year to stay on top of things and get everything done early so I don’t get stressed out during the hustle and bustle of the season.
One thing that always catches me off guard is Christmas cards. I always seem to forget them!  I always use photos from our fall session and make my own cards.  That usually means I buy a template on Etsy, throw it and the photos in photoshop, spend hours getting everything just perfect, and send them off to be printed. 
It takes me FOREVER to get them done.
This year the sweet folks over at SavvySassyMoms collaborated with Minted and gave us gift certificates to have our cards printed!  I’ve always made my own and was a little nervous about having to select premade ones and whether I would really like them….
then I went on the Minted website…
I had SOMUCHFUN looking at all the beautiful designs and with the Find it Fast preset, you can upload your photos and see them in each and every design on the main page! 
It was so cool!
There were so many designs that I loved, but when I came to this one, I knew it was it.  I’m such a lover of gold foil and getting to use my all my favorite photos made this one perfect.
I am THRILLED about how well they turned out.
If you haven’t ordered your cards yet, there’s still time!
They’ve got a great coupon to use now till Monday to save some $ too!


A special thanks to SavvySassyMoms & Minted for providing a gift certificate for these cards.  All opinions are my own.
