It's my guy's birthday today and I am so looking forward to celebrating him. Our twins' birthdays precede his by three days, and he often takes a backseat to their hoopla, but in recent years I've been more intentional to carve out a celebration just for him. Cause he's my main squeeze, and he's half to blame for this crazy life we are loving together!

I love that Lorae is introducing us to Le Papier Studio, a company based in Richmond, VA, on this week's Company Memo. Since seeing the silhouette necklace she had made earlier this year, I have kept coming back to this unique online shop. It has all the makings of the best birthday/Mother's Day/anniversary/Christmas gift EVER and is as personalized as they come. Put it on your holiday list now, and share, share, share. Grateful that I get to see Lorae this weekend for a quick overnight in . . .
