The Holidays Are Here


It’s that time of year again, the holiday season is upon us. It is hard to believe Thanksgiving is next week! Where has 2017 gone? Winston is getting ready for Christmas too! The other day, he was carrying around his Santa Claus ;)

Trey and I received our first Christmas party invitation in the mail this week and it hit me just how close December is. It will be here before we know it. December is always such a fun and crazy busy month full of family gatherings and holiday parties.  

We threw the biggest party of our lives in July and therefore, we decided to pass on hosting any holiday dinners, parties, etc. this year. However, as you may or may not know, I love all things paper! From gift wrapping supplies to books, stationery, and invitations; paper products give me the googly eyes. So, when stationery companies reveal their new Christmas card and holiday party invitation designs each year, I get real excited, embarrassingly so.    

Sending invitations in the mail gives parties an extra special touch! At our house, invitations always end up on the fridge, which in turn, serve as little reminders about the events.

Today, I am sharing some of my favorite designs from Basic Invite (link) with you. These designs are perfect for a holiday work party invitation or a Christmas cocktail party invitation.


You can also order Christmas cards on Basic Invite and check 2 things off your to-do list at one time.

Every Last Detail

On July 29, 2017, Trey and I finally tied the knot! When planning a wedding, there are so many details to think about from the larger decisions like the venue all the way down to the smaller details like the guest book. We chose The Historic Drish House for our venue for both the ceremony and

Holler and Dash | Tuscaloosa, Alabama

Holler and Dash had me at “Biscuit House”. I am a fan of all things breakfast, but biscuits are my favorite. My mouth waters just by browsing their menu. This cute little breakfast spot is located on The Strip at the University of Alabama.   House Salad – kale, roasted chicken breast, goat cheese, strawberries,

Boy Has It Been A While | Savannah Video | Happy Easter

Boy has it been a while. I underestimated the time it takes to be a maid of honor while planning your own wedding. Not to mention, serving on the board of an awesome foundation which, I will fill you in on later. I am enjoying every minute of all these experiences, but there isn’t much time left for anything else. So,

Our Engagement

On November 30, 2016, Trey and I went to the train trestle on Main Avenue in Downtown Northport to get pictures taken for Trey’s mom for Christmas. He said she had been asking for them for years. I kind of thought it was a little suspicious since Trey does not like to be in pictures.
