Snippet & Ink loves our friends at Hello!Lucky, and today they’re here giving away 100 2-color letterpress wedding invitations to one lucky Snippet & Ink reader! Oh letterpress… it’s really one of my favorite things ever. Check out a few of the designs available from Hello!Lucky:

I have to tell you though – there is no way these photos can do justice to the awesomeness of letterpress. Letterpress is something you want to hold in your hand, to feel the texture of the impressions and the weight of the paper. So if you’re not sure about it, take advantage of this promo Hello!Lucky has going on right now, where you can get your hands on 3 wedding samples for FREE before March 31.

Okay, so how do you win 100 letterpress invitations from Hello!Lucky? Leave a comment here, sharing one or two things that have inspired you most in your wedding planning. It can be anything, from a magazine to a flower to a song. You have until Thursday at 5:00PM PDT to enter, and I’ll announce the randomly selected winner on Friday morning. And in the meantime, go check out the variety of designs over at Hello!Lucky, including some delightful save the dates.

This contest is now closed.

We haven’t had a love shoot feature for awhile, and I think you’re going to enjoy these fun pics from Ozzy Garcia. Laura and Josue and musicians in Miami, and they marked their anniversary with a shoot in the heart of South Beach…

A picnic on the beach sounds so nice right about now… Thanks to Ozzy Garcia for sending over these great photos! See even more from this shoot right here.

Waking up this morning to tsunami warnings and images of the devastation in Japan was frightening and heartbreaking, and it’s a reminder of how unpredictable life can be – how much of what happens in the world is outside our control. Let it also be a reminder to tell the people we love that we love them, to make our own little corners of the world as lovely and loving places as possible, to give help whenever we can, and to send thoughts and prayers when we can’t.

If you’d like to donate to earthquake and tsunami relief in Japan, you can find a highly rated agency through Charity Navigator.

Be well, friends.

I had just the loveliest week: coffee with my honey in the middle of the day, pedicures and champagne with my officemates, a charming calligraphy class with my mom. Things are starting to bloom here – ornamental plums, hellebores, and the Japanese magnolia trees are going wild. This weekend, Little Flower School is coming to the Bay Area, and I’m taking the class! It’s definitely starting to feel like spring.
