We all know at some point that we will have to “grow up” and move away from home to find our own niche in the world. Some of us resist this more than others, and some of us even beg to come home. Okay, so yes, I have done this once….maybe twice! ; )
Well one of the things that grown up’s do is buy houses. Yes, buying a house is a MAJOR “big kid” step in my opinion, and one I greatly admire of my friends who have already made this step. This past week, one of my best girl friends, Rachel, just bought her first home, and I am SO PROUD of her! I felt honored to go over to her new place and help her pick out her paint colors last week. It was such a thrill to see the excitement on her face, and hear about all of the amazing plans she has for her new home.
I can’t wait to see Rachel’s house when she really makes it her own, and I wanted to make a card to congratulate her on her new adventure. I wanted the card to not only scream “congratulations you’re a homeowner!”, but also reflect Rachel’s personality as well. I used bright eclectic colors and included a type key font on the card that I felt gave it that vintage “anthropologie” look that Rachel and I love so much.
I can’t wait to deliver this greeting card to my friend Rachel, the homeowner. Congrats my friend!!
I couldn’t be more excited for our friends Emma and Jason who bought their first home together this month down in south Seattle. Their house is absolutely beautiful and is the envy of everyone who knows them! I got the opportunity to stay the night over at Emma and Jason’s a few nights ago and I just fell even more in love with their new home. I have no doubt in my mind that Emma and Jason will create the most amazing memories in this house!
As a means of congratulating them, Adam and I made a trip to Crate and Barrel (LOVE, LOVE, LOVE) this weekend to pick out a little housewarming gift. I was so excited to wrap their gift and include one of my seed packet envelopes to the package. Take a look!
Congrats E and J!
