Hope everyone had a great holiday weekend! I certainly did - it was actually pretty relaxing. I definitely didn't take on the Black Friday crowds, so that certainly helps the relaxation factor. Stay tuned for a few holiday gift guides in the next couple of weeks! I plan to highlight awesome yet wallet-friendly gifts for both guys and girls. In the mean time, here is a little typography in honor of the cold weather and one of my favorite holiday songs:COLDFonts used: Simon Script and KG Hard Candy Solid


Gifts for your Thanksgiving Hostess!

Hosting a holiday as big as Thanksgiving can be a lot of work - and chances are, if you're a 20-something with no kids like myself, you're not hosting the entire family at your place. Show your host or hostess how much you appreciate their hard work (and delicious meals!) with one of these great little gifts. Don't have time to shop beforehand? Grab a fresh bouquet of flowers from your local grocery store for the table!Thanksgiving_MB1. Turkey Compote Bowl with Ladle from Sur La Table, 2. Embossed Thanksgiving Serve Platter from Sur La Table, 3. Boulangerie Jar Candle from Anthropologie, 4. St. Germain from your local liquor store, 5. Gratitude Journal from Paper Source and 6. Turkey Linen Dishtowel from Crate and Barrel

Reese and I finally did our wedding registry the other day! We already had our honeymoon registry set up through Traveler's Joy for our trip to Paris and Barcelona next May, but my mom encouraged us to do a smaller registry of traditional items as well for the shower. Also, some guests do like to give an actual gift, so it's a good idea to have the best of both worlds. It's also a lot of fun (and a rite of passage) to walk around the store with the scanner and pick out everything you could possibly need. A citrus zester? A flour sifter? Why not! We decided on Crate&Barrel for 2 reasons - we love their simplistic, clean style and they have a little bit of everything from every price point, from rolling pins to a Vitamix (of course I registered for this. Will I get it? Who knows, but I've been told I HAVE to have one).

Below are a few of our favorite items from our registry list at Crate&Barrel - enjoy! registry_moodboard 1. KitchenAid Artisan Almond Cream Stand Mixer, 2. Mario Batali Red 6-Quart Dutch Oven, 3. Soup Tureen with Ladle, 4. Bodum Chambord 34 ounce French Press, 5. Flow Chip and Dip, 6. Brass Letter S Wall Art all from
