Happy Friday… and happy November! The arrival of November makes me want to jump in piles of crunchy leaves, go to corn mazes, and drink hot cider. It’s hard, though, to believe that 2011 is almost over and that the holidays are almost upon us!
Lots of great goings-on here at WeddingLovely this week:
I don’t know about you guys, but Halloween was always one of my favorite holidays. Granted, I’ll be working this year, but there’s something intrinsically special about holidays that give you an excuse to go all-out with decorating and dressing up (kind of like weddings!) Speaking of Halloween, I love this picture from Flickr- so spooky!
Things on the blog have been much more cheerful than spooky this week- here’s what we’ve been up to:
Monday: Marigold Press was our featured vendor– gorgeous work, check them out!
We also had a huge announcement on Monday: WeddingLovely is now a part of 500 Startups and The Designer Fund. Expect big things coming your way!
Every time I write one of these Friday roundups, I think to myself, “Holy cow, another week has gone by already?!” It’s amazing how fast time flies when you’re up to your eyeballs in work… but consider this post your little reminder to stop and smell the roses once in a while. Taking time out for those little moments make the big moments seem that much more special.
Now that you’ve had your daily reminder of enjoying the little things, here’s what’s been going on around the WeddingLovely blog the past week:
This week has been so nuts for both Tracy and myself, both of us definitely were looking forward to the weekend (although, really? When you’re self-employed, there’s no such thing as a weekend.) Anyways, I snapped this picture at Blitz agency where I was doing some contract work yesterday, and I think many of you will appreciate it:
Does anyone else feel like this week has absolutely flown by? Lots of exciting things happening here at WeddingLovely, but equally many things to get done before the weekend as well! To give you a little break from your end-of-week madness, I present you this (hilarious cat) video:
Like I said, this week has been a very exciting one for WeddingLovely and Tracy in particular: she created and released the very first WeddingInviteLove Lookbook!If you haven’t seen it yet, what are you waiting for?
We also had some great posts on the blog, including:
There are a lot of exciting things happening today. First, it’s Friday… so happy Friday! Secondly, it’s the first day of fall… so happy fall! Thirdly (and most excitingly for me), it’s my birthday… so happy birthday to you!
Why am I wishing all of you a happy birthday? Because to celebrate, I’ve been doing some epic giveaways over on my blog and I’m sharing them with you, WeddingLovely readers. We’re talking Lands End giftcards, cupcakes, and a really great giveaway that’ll be going live later today. So while you’re counting down the minutes until your weekend starts, head on over to Linz Loves You and enter the three (four by the end of today) contests to your heart’s content!
Take a deep breath… it’s finally Friday! I don’t know about you guys but I am doubly glad for it to be the weekend; maybe even more so because fall seems to be rolling into LA and that means the beginning of boot and sweater season (pretty much my favorite time of the year).
This week was my inaugural week here on the WeddingLovely, and we definitely had some great posts featured:
I miss my cat. Is that okay to admit? I’m heading home from Portland today and I can’t wait to see my cat (named Westley, after everyone’s favorite dread pirate.) Also, that’s a queen bed — my cat is gigantic.
Speaking of Portland — What. An. Amazing. City. I was up here to speak at DjangoCon (about how I started WeddingLovely and inspiring others to start their own projects), and it went wonderfully. My first time speaking at a conference solo! And THEN there was the Portland stationery meetup which was oh so much fun. Thank you to all the wonderful Portland lovelies who came out to chat — pictures coming soon!
(The only) photo from the meetup on Wednesday! The wine bar we moved to was way too dark so this was the only good picture taken. In any case, happy Friday everyone! I’m stressing out because on Monday I fly out to Portland and on Tuesday morning, I have an hour long presentation to give! New, scary, experiences, but it should be fun.
