This weekend was such a blast! We had my family’s annual Christmas party, made some yummy enchiladas (recipe coming later this week) looked at Christmas lights, did a little Christmas shopping and enjoyed some much needed family time at home. We are still in the process of unboxing all of our stuff and I am somewhere between needing a break and wanting to give everything else away. If we have made it 3 weeks without it, surly it can go, right?
Amidst all the fun and chaos this weekend, we also received some happy mail from Minted! You know how much I love their holiday cards and art, but I received my first framed photo from them and I love it just as much! Of course, I had the best Instagram/Bloggy hubs hang it for me immediately and knew the perfect spot for it! It is the first thing on the wall in our new home. Pretty fitting, don’t you think? Our first photo as a family of five in our first home as a family of five. Sentimental, right there! It is seriously beautiful! This photo is one from our family session with Allison Hilyer Photography a few weeks ago! Weston was 2 weeks old. I love the way they turned out. They’re absolutely beautiful!
Minted has the best selection of photo print art and I loved this classic white wood frame to go along with our white and black print. It looks beautiful hanging in our family room and you can see it as soon as you walk in the door. One thing I knew I wanted to do with our new house is fill it with photos of our family and friends – the people we love most – so that we can constantly be reminded of what matters and what is most important.
Next on my list is a gallery wall. Leave me a link to yours or a favorite one on Pinterest! I need some serious inspiration!
