Christmas card season! I love this season so much. Being able to catch up with family and friends over the year and see how the kids have grown and how families have changed or who went on vacation where. I love seeing the snapshot of their year and their family. A great feeling of connectedness during the holiday season!
This year called for a new address from the Koch Clan! Although we aren’t in there yet, we have sold our house and moved in with the in-laws for a couple months until our renovations are complete, so I was not about to change my address twice! Gives me a reason to go check on the house every day – gotta get the mail! :)
This year, I LOVED our photos from Lauren Neff (see our family photos here). They were full of green and nature and I went for a deep green and navy theme with all of our outfits. I LOVE the hunter green trend I’m seeing everywhere right now, just look at all of these! The “berry merry” trend is seriously stunning as well!
Usually, I am all about simplicity in a holiday card (see ours from 2017, 2016, 2015), let the photo do the talking, however, this year, give me all the bold florals! Maybe it’s my obsession with large bloom floral wallpaper (basically every wallpaper on here!!), but this “Lush Winter Foliage” card was exactly what I was imagining to match our photos! I really loved the border of florals that surround our card, it perfectly accentuates our outfits and nature, so pretty. And the pop of blush pink makes it feminine and calming to me. Plus the tanish/gold border frame looks beautiful with the wheat grass in our photo. Really love our card this year! It was actually an easy decision for me this year, I’m one of those people who have to see 100 examples before picking one, but this year, I went straight to this design!
Halloween is upon us! I am obsessed with everything spooky and scary and Halloweeny! Kids were excited to dress up in some costumes and go to Halloween Harvest Fest put on by YMCA Camp Leif Ericson. We’ve gone each year and it’s always a ton of fun and the kids get a lot of candy on their haunted trail!
Happy 4th of July!!! Happy Birthday America! We celebrated at Lake Madison and had a fun celebration staying up late watching fireworks, eating 28 bomb pops (red white and blue, duh!), and swimming in the lake! Such a fun holiday! The kids loved saying “Happy Birthday America!!!” every time they saw a flag :)
Here’s our 4th of July in photos!
Bomb pops = favorite popsicle
This Easter, we headed to our new cabin in the Black Hills, Sheep Hill Chalet. I love hunkering into a vacation home with the family on holidays! And the Hills are gorgeous right outside our windows! It snowed a TON! We were definitely stuck inside two of the days, but it wasn’t so bad with the cozy fire and huge windows to look at all the beauty around you!
On Easter morning, Ivy woke up bright and early and was dressed in her Easter best the second she woke up! She couldn’t wait to do the Easter egg hunt and get her basket! It had snowed so much the day before Easter that we were forced to have an indoor egg hunt. Fun for them to explore the new cabin!
Hello February!! Soooo glad January is over with, my least favorite month bc #winter. Ugh. Such an awfully cold month! But February is here! And I LOVE the pops of color everywhere now. Gimme all the pinks and reds! Plus, it’s the month of loooooove and a time to let your loved ones know how much they mean to you. I am anxious for a couples date night (to Archie’s! So excited) and another date night (to MB Haskett!) with the hubs coming up for Valentine’s Day! Shopping for two festive af shirts to wear for the dates. Prolly need those blush mules, LOVE!
