I had all my images done this week on time! But the week ran away from me as I kept up with the craziness of 3 tiny people and the rollercoaster of emotions from a very booked week . Sometimes it's best to let life just kind of hit you and wash over you so you can stand back up stronger and ready to take on the rest of life full steam ahead.
SO here is my second week of the month of October <3
Being far from family during the holidays is my least favorite part about the season. Keeping in touch through the hustle and bustle can be so hard, thankfully getting mail is still a thing and we can send cards back and forth if we want to stay close in more than one way. I grew up home-schooled so my family went from being ALWAYS together to now having our own lives since most of us are living in other states or major cities. This makes the holiday season so much more valuable to me when we don't get to see each other as often. My sister had her first baby this year and I am so thankful that there are so many ways to easily connect with the people we love.
One of the ways I like to connect with family and friends is through using Basic Invite. Technology is amazing and the way it allows us to connect with the people we love is so convenient. Basic Invite combines the ease of technology with the timelessness of getting a beautiful card out of your mailbox at Christmas time.
Sending Holiday cards while using Basic Invite makes the process easier than you think. They are one of the few websites that allow customers almost unlimited color options with instant previews online. They offer Online Christmas Cards, Personalized Holiday Cards, and Holiday Party Invitations plus so many more things to use throughout the year.
I took a few minutes to design a Personalized Holiday Card myself in preparation for the Holiday Season and it was so easy to get it done how I wanted to send to friends and family .
One of the best features of Basic Invite is one that it allows you to order a printed sample of the invitation before you place the final order. That way you can see and feel the paper quality, know how it will print, and make sure the card is perfect before sending them out to everyone.
To make that delivery seamless and beautiful, Basic Invite seals the deal with Over 40 Different Colors of Envelopes, you can actually make the envelope match the invitation. All of the envelopes are peel and seal so they can be closed quickly!! This is my favorite because I hate licking envelopes (anyone else ever get a paper cut on their tongue before? No just me?? LOL)
If that wasn’t helpful enough they won me over instantly with their Address Capturing Service. Basic Invite offers a service that allows me to share a link on my Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or any other social media platform to request my friends and family’s addresses. The addresses are stored in my personal account and then I can select them during the design process.
I can't wait to send out holiday greeting cards this year, If you want to try Basic Invite out for yourself then go ahead and use their discount code for 15% off: 15FF51

The week of October 1-7 in photos.
I’m enjoying giving myself more practice with manual settings on my camera. It’s always good to continue to sharpen skills as you progress in a thing you are passionate about. I continue to surprise myself and I always am shocked at how much of a stress relief taking photos is for me and my anxiety.
Enjoy this week in photos 😊
