small things

Dear Friends,

How sweet is this quote?  And how true.  Often, the smallest gestures done out of kindness for others can make a big impact.  One of my besties from home totally brought life to these words for me today!  She sent me  a "just thinking of you note" note in the mail, and reading her words brightened my day.  It was so sweet of her to think of me and do a little something special that I wasn't expecting.  Love her and the example she sets for me!

Let's all find one sweet, special thing to do today.  I'm going to pass on the note writing love and send one to my grandma.  Have any fun ideas?  I'd love to read them in the comments!

xo, Caitlin

all i want for christmas (and other holiday tunes)

Dear Friends, Christmas is almost here, and to say that Austin and I are excited is understatement.  To prepare for the big day, we've been listening to Christmas music for hours each day is an understatement.  Mariah Carey definitely inspired the print above---as did my who  mom performed an impressively convincing lip-sync version that I had the opportunity to experience first live via FaceTime, but I'll spare you the details on that one.

If you're on the hunt for some new Christmas tunes that really capture the reason for the season, be sure to check out some of the ones I'm posting below to hear some of our absolute faves this year! xoxo, Caitlin
