Today I started wrapping gifts. It’s something I love doing when I have the time and in small doses. And that’s the key. I picked out simple brown paper this year. With a red and brown jute string. And the cutest gift tags. I’m only wrapping a few things each day. This way I’m avoiding the frustration that sets in when I try to do it all at once. And I can take my time and enjoy. Tonight I’m rewarding my efforts with a cookie (freshly baked chocolate chip) and a tall glass of water! Because I’m lactose intolerant and after a weekend filled with 🍷I decided to take it easy and rehydrate. 🤣 🎄🍪 Photo cred: @mcassiepix
I don’t know how you feel about it, but I truly believe that the holidays are winter’s only redeeming value. And this weekend, our schedule is FULL of family and holiday fun. ⛄️ Tonight we are celebrating our last wedding of the season! And it’s a really special one! 🤗 My cousin @cmarie158 is getting married to the sweetest guy, Gerard. And we are so pleased to be there to celebrate. 🎄 We also are going to spend some quality time with Sydney. Some lunch and maybe a little shopping before she goes back to studying for 2 weeks of the semester. ❄️ Tomorrow we will head back to Jersey and grab C for the beginning of the Christmas cookie baking extravaganza! 🍪 Photo cred: @mcassiepix Rental: @rusticdrift
The holidays are upon us! I’ve been clicking like crazy and checking my list twice! I love it when the season has a pace of its own that slows us to enjoy each part of the season slowly and with intention. Chanukah this week. A wedding celebration surrounded by family this weekend. Christmas (and cookies!) for the rest of the month. 💙👰🎄🍪 Phototography | @mcassiepix Styling | @bogathevents Mantle | @rusticdrift
Ohhhh. It’s starting to get yucky out there. Today, I saw frozen water all over my windshield during a (thankfully) light snowstorm. So, here’s a little bit of spring for you.
What is one of my favorite themes for any of life’s milestones? Photography! Those vintage white photo frames are to die for! And It’s so much fun to celebrate and walk down memory lane with your guests. 🥰 💕 THE CREATIVE TEAM Planner | @bogathevents Planner's Assistant | @caryns_finnnsta Photographer | @hpalecekphotography Venue | @saltcreekgrille_rumson Florals | @forkedriverflorist Invitations | @Minted
