Last year, Eric and I couldn’t decide whether or not to send out a holiday card and by the time we wanted to send one, it was far too late. That’s why when November rolled around this year I jumped at the chance to design our first holiday card. The first stop I made was Minted.
After looking through hundreds of designs, I decided to go with the design that Jenna Lyons picked out as the winner of the holiday design contest. When you purchase this design, Minted will donate 15% of gross profit from the sales of Etched to Teach For America. “Minted believes in enabling the growth, creativity, and careers of independent designers. Teach For America’s mission is to build the movement to eliminate educational inequity by enlisting our nation’s most promising future leaders in the effort.”
There are thousands of designs to choose from and there is definitely something for everyone. I can’t wait to see what all of you pick as your favorite. I’m off to go assemble and address mine!
Well, I’m incredibly excited to announce that one lucky reader will win a $100 Minted gift certificate! Just pop over to Minted and then leave a comment here telling us which holiday invitation you would purchase with the certificate.
A winner will be chosen one week from today and please be sure to leave your email address.

After an incredible Saturday photographing our apartment the rest of the weekend was all about enjoying some time at home due to the rainy weather. It was delightful.
A few things inspiring me this week – the first issue of Kinfolk was the perfect read before Thanksgiving, blooms for the house (anemones and paper whites), and lastly a trip to Heath Ceramics to pick up a few presents and some dish ware for the apartment.
I hope all of you have a lovely week ahead whether you’re prepping for Thanksgiving, traveling to visit family or staying close to home. I can’t wait for the holiday weekend – it’s going to be so fun!
Cheers to a wonderful short week of work!

I can’t tell you how excited I am that the weekend has finally arrived. Tonight I’ll be prepping the house for a photo shoot on Saturday (very excited about this one!). Flowers have been purchased, different outfit options have been laid out and I hope that by the time I hit my pillow tonight our apartment will smell super clean.
After the shoot it’s going to be all about catching up with friends, doing a little fall shopping, and since rain is in the forecast, I think snuggling up at home with a cup of tea and a good book is needed.
Hope all of you have a lovely weekend. I for one hope it goes by quickly because I cannot wait for Thanksgiving next week!
