Hello friends!! For those of you celebrating Thanksgiving this week...Happy almost Thanksgiving!! Hooray!!  We have lots of family plans this week and we're both doing our best to take a little break and rest for the holidays. :) 
 



SAVANNAH'S THANKSGIVING PLANS

This year we are visiting family in Georgetown to celebrate Thanksgiving! I'm a little nervous about the long car-ride with Soren but he did so good on our trip to the beach and to Fort Mill a few months ago so I think everything will go smoothly. After celebrating with Jon's side of the family we are turning around and hosting a Thanksgiving gathering at our place for my family and for Jon's parents. We were able to host Thanksgiving at our house last year too and it was so much fun! I love being able to use our living room turned dining hall and see everyone together at one big table...or in our case...several fold-out tables pushed together. ;) I definitly look forward to the moments I get to celebrate with my family. 

Last year was a special Thanksgiving for us because we got to be EXTREMELY thankful that my mom was declared cancer free! This year she is still cancer free! Praise God!

We already have all of our Christmas decor out so it will be a "Christmasy" Thanksgiving this year. :) 

A LITTLE UPDATE ON SAVANNAH'S LIFE...

During Holiday break time, Jon and I love taking the opportunity to do some work on our home. We've been re-decorating the nursing mothers room at our church and worked on the painting today and it inspired me to do MORE painting in our home so I ran out to Lowe's bought a bucket of charcoal grey and nearly hot pink! Oh yes! I've got big plans for that pink! I can't wait to show you. I've never been much of a pink person so this is a bold move for me, but I think I'm going to love it. As soon as I get done editing this post I'm diving into my project right away!

JENNY'S THANKSGIVING PLANS

Drew and I are excited to be visiting family in Indiana this year for Thanksgiving. I haven't seen that side of my family in a very long time and most of them have never met Rowan. This will also be Drew's first time going to Indiana with me since I haven't gone since before we got married. I'm thrilled because I'll also get to see my siblings and my brother's new baby girl :) AND it will be the first time that my parents, my siblings, and all the babies have been together. A lot to be excited about!! Pray for us on the long car ride up there - it's going to be a doozy.

A LITTLE UPDATE ON JENNY'S LIFE...

This week I've just been busy working and hanging out with Ro. I've tried to get everything done so I can truly take a break over the Thanksgiving holiday. I love being online, but I equally love being able to unplug and take breaks. :)

Today Jenny and I are SO excited to give you guys a sneak peek at our family Christmas cards!! Last year was the first time Jon and I sent out Christmas cards and since having Soren we really love the opportunity to share photos and a special note with our family and friends. Also, Christmas is the best and getting cards in the mail makes everything awesome. ;) 

You might remember us mentioning our event shenanigans a few weeks ago. An excuse to have girl time and dress up? Amen. Minted, one of our favorite companies, has been hosting a handful of Makers Nights in Atlanta. We got the opportunity to attend a few; one making inspiration boards with the loverly Joni of Lay Baby Lay and the second with Minted and Southern Living for a "Cake and Cards" event! It was SUCH a special treat to spend an evening with creatives, put together our Christmas cards and enjoying the BEST cake in the universe thanks to Southern Living. Jenny and I were in heaven. :) I mean...being creative AND eating sweets?! Yes, always and forever. 
 


For the event, we each pre-ordered our Christmas cards. Honestly, it probably took me over 3+ hours of scrolling through the Minted site trying to figure out which cards to pick! I finally settled on these gorgeous and frame-worthy "Love and Joy" cards. I loved being able to put our photos on the back along with a little message. Not to mention all of the precious details like the envelope insert, address printing and return address stickers. They came together beautifully and I'm trying to figure out how to top them next year...probably not going to happen! 
 


Jenny picked these gorgeous foiled cards to send out to her family and friends. This photo doesn't do the foil justice. It's so shiny and stunning in person. I think having options to pick a card with a decorated front and adding photos to the back is a great way to take the pressure off of including the "perfect" photo to the front of your card. BUT if you have a killer photo you want to display on the front they only have about 1 million options for you. ;) 

Check out some photos from the "Cakes and Cards" event in the slideshow below! All of these shots were taken by the crazy talented Morgan of Morgan Blake Photography who we have a major girl crush on. 
 



GIVEAWAY TIME!!! -- That's right! We couldn't show you these beautiful cards without offering a killer giveaway! Minted was incredibly generous and is offering one of you the chance to win a $350 gift card to their shop!!!! Pick out your perfect Christmas cards and the works! One winner will be selected at random and announced within the week. Enter using rafflecoper below! Hooray and best wishes to you all!
