Insights on Literature, etiquette, and Beauty from a Catholic wife and mom

Merry Christmas! I hope you had a wonderful weekend and that your Christmas Season continues to be blessed. Peter’s first Christmas was incredible. This was his big gift and each time he goes in it he has the biggest smile on his face! We spent our entire Christmas Day inside together, just the three of us, a tradition we want to continue.

I have been combing through some sales today and saw that J.Crew is having up to 50% off their sale items with the code SHOPSALE. I wanted to share some of my favorites with you! Mike teases me that I am always wearing black and grey – something I never used to do! One of my goals for the upcoming year is to slowly add color back in my wardrobe. These beautiful, feminine, soft hues that I found are the perfect way to ease back into color!
