It’s the first full week into the new year and I still don’t feel my normal self yet. Like, I kind of need 3 more months of a break. Anyone else? Maybe I’ll take Lars on the rode and we’ll blog from France for the rest of the year or something. Yeah, that sounds like a sound idea.

I wanted to share with you the holiday cards we sent out this year. We used our card that we designed for Modify Ink¬†and MATCHED my new favorite dress (a vintage 60s Oscar de la Renta from Maeberry Vintage) to the cards. Because that’s the beauty of Modify Ink, you can customize all the colors! It challenged me to add in a bit of purple here and there (purple is not on my favorites list) and I love how it turned out especially with the touches of reds and yellows. We were lucky to get an appointment with the incomparable Justin Hackworth for a portrait. I always find it funny to send out cards as a couple without kids, especially with how “online” we are, but I couldn’t pass up the chance to have some pretty cards sent out.

How’s your New Year’s so far?
