thanks to daily candy, i just ran across set editions and this unbelievable set of cards: in this box comes: 6 birthday, 2 congratulations, 2 valentine's day, 6 thank you, 2 mother's day (your mom & mother-in-law, sweet), 2 father's day, 2 sympathy, 2 anniversary, 4 blank, 2 get well, 6 holiday and 4 new year. it was $60, but with the daily coupon deal (enter DCDEAL in the promo code box) they're only $45! plus they're cardstock and super cute.

i know, i know, it's june. that said, i LOVE christmas (and text ryan on the 25th of every month telling him how many months it is till christmas!) AND minted, which you know i love, is having its' holiday card design contest. i just got so excited. here's why:
p.s. you can see the our very first christmas card here!
so, you might remember how much i love the giving tree. well, then you can imagine how excited i was when i found this FREE tutorial (that's really easy to do!) on how to make the most adorable giving tree invite. we then used these envelopes (in paper bag color of course!) we used it for our rehearsal dinner, but you really could use it for anything. our rehearsal dinner was so important to us -- we had it at a dear family friend's house, that was across the street from the church and just so perfect.
1. you have endless lists
2. you have the best intentions to keep a journal, but don't quite get around to it.
thus, my go to gift since i discovered it has been listography. for list people, it's like the super bowl. and, because of the lists included, it becomes like a journal (personal fashion trends, favorite foods) i gave it to my newly-married friends for christmas-- how great would it be to have a book of lists you did together your first year of marriage? i gave it to my mom, because she is the queen of lists and taught me everything i know. there are more versions, including music and love here.
we were so happy to join the tradition of writing each other letters the day of our wedding. honestly, it was one of my favorite things we did that day. i had picked out the cards (above is my groom's to me, which is especially appropriate because he is 6'5) and the rules were we weren't allowed to write anything until that day. what really warmed my heart was that in different words, we wrote the same thing.
funny story behind the photo above -- i thought what he wrote on the envelope was so sweet and simple (and it was). my husband later told me he was so caught up in the day, he accidentally wrote his own name (instead of mine), so this is how he fixed it. love it so much.
more wedded bliss here!
