so very sorry my lovlies for being MIA for the past two fridays. crazy stuff! BUT, we’re back in full bloom after a nice and refreshing ( and BUSY ) trip to Iowa for destination engagement photos ( see a sneak here ) and save the date design session. SO much fun. Got to spend time with some of my favorite people, refreshed and excited to be back to blogging now! So, without further ado, here’s some of the things that are making me smile this friday!
iphone background – this user has TONS of really cute iphone backgrounds pinned for christmas. mine is the one i’ve featured here. so cheerful, love it!
kava house coffee and atmosphere – LOVE LOVE LOVE this place. my friends and i went for lunch as soon as we got into iowa. its such a cute and quaint place that had these crazy salt & pepper shakers ( that kinda freaked me out ) — we enjoyed kava house’s coffee ( of course yummy christmas brews ) all week courtesy of the fabulous mother of the bride, as well as perfect little salads! it was such a cute place and a must visit if you’re in the swisher, iowa area!
fireside wine and winery this isn’t my first time here, but let me just say the staff was a DREAM to work with. we had so much fun, and basically had the indoors and outside to ourselves for about 3 hours for our photoshoot. i don’t have anything but great feedback for these fabulous winemakers and staff. we had a BLAST photographing, indoors and out ( in increments of about 10 minutes – because it was 18 degrees that day ) hello NEW stat : image to impact photographs in extremely increment weather! ha! you must order some of their wine – our favorite is the matchbox! thanks again fireside!
smudge ink press evan and i purchased our “hotlanta” letterpressed christmas cards from this great company and i couldn’t be happier. its awesome that letterpress lives! ah. makes my heart so happy! view their site and awesome creations!
bloggers christmas mixtape now this – has been on repeat. i absolutely love this new found blog of this little lady and this blogger christmas mix. i’ve listened to it a zillion times while wrapping presents and designing this week. so happy to find something that’s not cheesy!
