life happenings {via the trusty camera phone}.

It's Sunday afternoon, the little one is down for his nap, I have a break between church and choir rehearsal, and Harry Connick, Jr. is currently serenading me with his version of Sleigh Ride.

Life is good.

Here's a little photo dump of what has been going on in our lives lately.

Oh, and friends?
I want to introduce you to Rachel from her Etsy shop
Listen to this amazingness...
Rachel creates HAND-DRAWN illustrations in her sketchbook, scans them to her computer, and then adds some color in an illustrating program for the finishing touch.
The best part about it?  They're all printables, so you can decide when and where to print them!
I love scoring a good deal and this is one of the best deals you will find (especially for the quality of work she does!)
I mean, where else can you find an adorable Christmas gift
for under $10.00?!
Oh, and you'd be supporting a small business.
I love doing that.
So, because I adore her work,
I've decided to host another giveaway!
I couldn't decide which print to give away (as I have so many favorites, like the "Put On Love" one), but finally decided on this one:

      I'm jealous that you ate Jose time you go, eat some extra chips, salsa, and espinaca dip for me. :)
