Printable Valentine’s Cards + Galentine’s Day Card Freebie! [Limited Time Only]

valentine's printable card - kiss me

So this is going to make my hubby and me sound a little bit lame- but we are all about binge watching shows. Most of the early months of dating included laughing through his collection of DVDs from The Office. We’ve watched that show so many times we have deleted scene quotes memorized.

Most of the cards that I designed for this holiday of love are almost entirely inspired by my hubby and our love for relaxing on the couch together and watching shows and movies together. Including Star Wars of course because… my hubby loves Star Wars. so. much. it. drives. me. crazy.

And YES… of course I have Galentine’s Day cards available too because I love Parks and Rec almost as much as my hubby loves Stars Wars. AND for a limited time, my personal favorite Galentine’s Day card (the hoes before bros one) will be available for free. If you check back in on Monday, February 12 you can download it for free (if you miss that it’s only $2.50 in my etsy store).

Hello February! Downloadable Calendar Freebie.

free February 2018 calendar wallpaper

Hellooooooo my lovies here is the free February 2018 calendar- with flowers and Valentines feels all around!

Oh man… I was having a killer time with getting this post up. There was some sort of issue with my WordPress that was making me pull my hair out. So my apologies this didn’t go live the day I wanted it too. :'(

Anyway- I haven’t been feeling the greatest lately. It luckily hasn’t been the flu… but man it has been rough. That being said it has been a good year so far. I’m feeling rather pleased with my resolution to not have strict resolutions. It has been one of my more relaxed Januarys- I didn’t try any crazy diet, I didn’t fast anything, and I didn’t jump into any exercise routine.

Not that all of that is bad or anything… but I’m just saying I had a lovely January and feel ready for this brand new year.

Year In Review. My Current Favorites.

Happy 2018 officially! So I was browsing through my old posts from previous new years… and I feel a real disenchantment with New Year’s resolutions. I mean- I have goals for the year and all that- but I don’t feel like making an official list that I will later feel annoyed with or guilty over this time next year.

My goal is this- keep going. That’s it. Everyday smile and breath and laugh and grieve and pray and dance and everything.

Since that seems like a fairly unexciting blog post- I was struck with a fun idea. What if I started a new tradition of just listing my favorites. Maybe I’ll do this once a year or maybe twice a year (once in January and once in July). As I was browsing through my past resolutions, I thought it would be fun to be able to go back and see what I listed as my favorites a year ago (or six months ago… depends on how often I do it).

This is going to be informal- no specific list of questions that I have to answer. I’m just going to quickly talk about everything that comes to mind that I think is awesome.
 

My Current Favorites

The simple latte my hubby makes me every morning before work is my favorite part of my morning.

I could cook up salmon patties with potatoes almost every day- it’s a recipe my mother gave me and I’ve since made my own.

Although also I love it when my hubby and I don’t cook at all and order Indian food for delivery.

I love eating fresh, hot popcorn while watching anything at all on the couch with my hubby.

On that note- my favorite movie is Paterson, my favorite show is This Is Us, and I’ll be rewatching Parks and Recreation episodes until the day I die (I think).

My lace up riding boots -that are far cooler than I could ever hope to be- are my favorite thing in my closet right now. these boots specifically

The free La Croix machine at my office is work day bliss and fuels my flavored sparkling water addiction.

I love my record player– specifically the sound a record makes when the needle first hits the vinyl. It’s the most hipster thing about me.

On that note- I play Fletwood Mac, Lord Huron, Hozier, and Dermot Kennedy on repeat.

As corny as it sounds, sleeping in on a Saturday cuddled up against my husband is near perfection.

The way my favorite candle from Anthropologie makes my house smell- it’s Volcano by Blue Capri.

Our vacation to New York City last year is one my favorite trips ever with my hubby (second only to our honeymoon).

The way my puppy cuddles up under my chin when I pick him up makes my heart melt.

Hmm…. okay, there you have it! My favorites from off the top of my head. What are your favorites?

Hello 2018! Hello January! Downloadable Calendar Freebie.

Happy New Year!! Goodbye 2017. Hello 2018! Hello to a free January 2018 calendar- the first one of the year!

Mercy… 2017 a year. A happy but also heartbreaking year. That tends to be how a year goes by, isn’t it? I don’t feel like rehashing everything here- I’m ready for a new year with new blessings and challenges to face. I’m hoping to blog a little more- get back into the swing of that.

I had a marvelous December (albeit a very very Star Wars saturated December). We spent Christmas at my parent’s house where my brother and sis-in-law surprised us all with their presence. My parents got me a pair of those fancy AirPods and my in-laws gave me a pair of the prettiest boots EVER. My hubby bought me a record player- which I have been looking into for several months now. :) Plus we celebrated our eighth wedding anniversary in downtown Denver sans presents. I also got to spend my birthday with our wonderful group of friends from church. After all that has happened in the past months- it was a very lovely way to end the year.

I have a lot of hope for 2018- hope for growth and peace and contentment. I have the same hopes for you all of you this coming year- as well as twelve new free wallpapers for you. :)

Hello December! Downloadable Calendar Freebie.

Hello December! Hello to a free December 2017 calendar- the last one of the year (cannot believe it is December already)! I personally really liked last month’s image- so I decided to go with something similar again for this month. Do you have a style you would like me to focus on next year- photos or patterns?

Anyway- hello to the busiest month of the year for my hubby and I! Our house is already a Christmasy winter wonderland- so I’m all set for all the stuffs crammed into this month- Christmas, of course, plus my birthday, our anniversary, my mother’s birthday, my sister’s birthday, and so. much. Star Wars!

Anyone else married to a Star Wars fan? Or is a Star Wars fan themselves? Compared to my husband and my mother and siblings- I’m not really a fan. I do enjoy them though… just not to the same level they do. I limit my husband to how many times I’ll see it in the theaters with him and he’s really sweet to make sure Star Wars doesn’t overshadow my birthday.

I’m going to be twenty-nine in a couple weeks- woot-woot! And my husband and I are celebrating our eighth wedding anniversary… which is crazy surreal. So much to fit into thirty-one days! I probably won’t be back here until next year (just being honest)- so I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday season. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Hello November! Downloadable Calendar Freebie.

free November 2017 calendar for desktop

Hello November! Hello to a free November 2017 calendar of course. It’s available for you to download today (sorry I meant for it to go up yesterday… but I’ve been pretty sick and wasn’t paying attention). But hello season of thanks and giving! I am so very excited for the holidays!

First off- thank you all for the support after I shared the story of our miscarriage. It was deeply healing and moving to feel the outpouring of love from all reaches of the internet. My husband and I had waited until we felt whole enough to post our story- but the onslaught of love and grief others poured out for us helped soothe and heal the ache beyond what we thought possible. There is absolutely nothing on this earth like being surrounded by those who have experienced your pain and feel your grief. Again I say- if you have gone through a miscarriage or any sort of loss- please feel free to reach out to me. I’m happy to talk about it or just listen. No one should go through that pain and sorrow alone.

Besides that- work is good. Life is lovely. My hubby and I just got back from a trip to New York City (my very very first time being there). It was absolutely fantastic. I’ll try to write up a whole post about it- but won’t promise anything (sorry). Speaking of NYC- my thoughts and prayers go out to everyone affected by the attack this week- I can’t imagine that horror and fear and grief. ❤️
