Late afternoon hike

A beautiful hike in the snow on Saturday. How do you get sore arms from hiking? Fall. More than a few times. On the snow & ice like a 4 year old. And then laugh hysterically about it every time (even when it hurts... especially when it hurts)!!!

I only got to take a few quick shots before my camera went dead but I probably wouldn't have had time to really have fun and get some good ones since we came out of the trail head right as it got too dark to really see... phew! I was secretly more than a little nervous that we would get caught in in dense woods after dark.

Belated Christmas...

I put these little e-vites together in a rush back in December for a last minute holiday party J & I had at our apartment. Just thought I would share before the holiday thing got to stale.

We still have our tree up. I couldn't bring myself to take it down before J got back to NYC and it's been such a busy week that it just hasn't happened yet.

We're going to New Paltz in the morning to do a little hiking with some friends (like last year!) I can't wait—it's giving me the motivation to make it through this looong week!

Kendra's Bridal Shower

I got to play hostess just before Christmas at my sister's bridal shower. Of course my main duty was to take care of the invites while the other hostesses did a great job with the food & decorations!

I screen printed (with my yudu, of course!) the doily/snowflake pattern onto grey stock and ran that through my printer for the black text.

I also made some simple recipe cards that people filled out and brought to the shower to help Kendra & Stephen start a good collection of recipes from their loved ones.

Now... to get cracking on those wedding invites!
