Happy Weekend!

This weekend, Ryan and I are celebrating our second anniversary a few days early with dinner at Dixie. I love that our anniversary falls at the beginning of the holiday season – it’s such a nice, personal way to get into the celebratory spirit! And of course, a handful of these links are holiday-related, so that’s another way to get ready for the season…

Sugar plum, gingerbread…every flavor of candy cane imaginable!

What romantic head pieces.

Tabletop Christmas trees.

2 Advent calendars: one giant, one mini.

Lovely gold foil invites (and love the Florentine paper).

Wearing flowers.

Holiday finger-food combination generator.

Great gift-wrap round-up.


And finally, on a personal note… Last year, my nephew Bode was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer. He handled treatment like an absolute rockstar, and I am so grateful that he is now a strong and healthy 5-year-old. This holiday season, Bode and his big brother, Kellen, are collecting Dear Santa letters to raise money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation (who recently granted Bode his wish to see hot lava in Hawaii!). Bode and Kellen are asking everyone – kids and grown-ups alike – to send a letter before December 14th (email or postal mail). And of course if you’d like to share this video on Twitter or Facebook, I know the boys would appreciate it. Learn more in the video HERE. I love you Bode Bear!

Update! You can mail your Dear Santa letters:
