invitation sneak peek

My husband and I agreed to ignore Valentines Day this year in order to save money for an upcoming trip. After blatant denials of secret Valentine surprises, we both sneakily planned and ended up celebrating in spite of ourselves.

While I perpetuate my Valentine's Day sugar high, I am working on my cousin's wedding invitation and I wanted to give you a little peak. I designed my own wedding invitation, but this is the first one I have done outside of that. Luckily the "client" is family and required to love me no matter what. I'm still working, but what do you think so far?

bring it on blizzard

Sixteen inches of snow and sub zero temperatures will go a long way when it comes to keeping a native Texan locked up indoors. However, I can't hardly be jealous of friends and family further south because this crazy weather has hit almost everywhere. I suppose I should just be thankful that I live in a city with a fleet of snow plows and have a snow shoveling super hero of a husband. The day after the blizzard, we did brave the frigid air long enough to do some sledding with a couple of friends, but mostly we're enjoying chili, late night card games, and peppermint schnapps. What are you doing to keep warm?
