Winter has been keeping us inside a LOT this year. But because this is a “grateful” post, I’m not going to complain about it. ;) Instead, I’m going to talk about a few great ( and random ) things that have been going on as of late. Because we’ve been stuck indoors, I’ve had a lot of time to work on our Save The Dates. Just like with any personal project, I MAJORLY struggled to get started … going in a billion different directions. But then, life was kind and helped me settle on a concept Michael and I both approved of. Phew. I know the photos I’m sharing here are more of a “sneak peek” vibe, but I plan on sharing a more comprehensive look at everything in a bit, once finalized. These puppies will go to print ( I’m still color matching ) sometime in the next few weeks. Feels good to check that off of our never ending list of to dos!
The other thing I’ve been super excited about lately ( and the reason a seemingly random spoon + fork are pictured ) is our new forty-five piece gold utensils set. My mom purchased this for my birthday and I’m not sure I’ve ever been SO excited about cutlery. I’ve had my eye on something like these for a few years, and just couldn’t bring myself to make the investment. I’m not sure why, but frugality is a curse I’m learning to deal with. Luckily, my mom came to the rescue and made all our meals that much prettier. It’s funny how the most mundane details can make our day that much more exciting.
And lastly, I’m grateful that I’m once again feeling inspired to drag out my camera + experiment. I still have a lot to learn in terms of shooting + exploring during post processing, but I’m excited to share more of that around here. Please excuse the imperfections in these shots. I set out to take a really organized “overhead” set of photos, but enjoyed sharing my whole setup more. Sometimes behind the scenes is more fun, right??
