Monday Inspiration | Oct 6, 2014

Happy Monday to everyone! Busy busy weekend for me. A friend and I helped the lovely ladies of Typecase Industries hand assemble invitations on Saturday for a very important event coming up in the DC area (squeeeee!). After five hours of meticulous curve cutting, gluing and mounting, I’m happy to say we helped make a dent in the 500 invites they needed to deliver. I don’t mind sacrificing comfort in the name of beautiful invitations. 🙂

Then, yesterday, my husband and I visited a friend and her husband for lunch and made our way to a local produce stand/market where they have a whole pumpkin patch type area set-up for children. Vee loved it and was running around all over the place. She picked out a baby pumpkin for herself, too. All in all, it was a success! After typing it out, it doesn’t seem like my weekend was that overwhelming but I’m still recovering! Boo these old bones.
