I LOVE Christmas cards, especially the photo cards. This year, and last, and the one before I have ordered our cards through Minted. I love their selection and quality. And, this years cards are just as good if not better. I mean gold foil? Done! Not to mention they were already addressed when they arrived at my house. Total win here!

Ryan, my husband, texted me in route from Miami and asked if I would get shrimp. I texted back laughing saying just left the store and actually just bought some. He sent me the following recipe, and ironically, I had just bought half of the ingredients as well. So, when he finally got home he showed me that he actually found the recipe in Charleston Magazine.

I had the recent pleasure of meeting Sarah from Reclaimed Artistry through another mutual friend of mine.  Since then we've had coffee, a chance to learn more about one another, talk about work, our homes (she's a neighbor) and now she's working on a piece for Cooper's room which I cannot wait to share with all of you!  She's a super talented, down to earth, fun lady with this knack for creating fabulous artwork!LPS: What inspired you to become an artist?Sarah: There are two answers to that question.
