I had a serious “wait, how do I upload a blog post again?” moment when I logged in today. It has been that long… 20 days to be exact and I am really not happy about it. But…such is life. I have been in a serious state of “go, go, go” for the past few weeks, juggling a new puppy, planning the Southern Proper spring photoshoot, client work, and traveling around to visit residency programs with my husband every week. And to top it all off, my internet decided to just “go away” for a day or two when I was just getting my feet on the ground (so much fun). So needless to say, I have found myself a little strapped for time and two days late (again) from my intended monday return. I hate that the blog is the first thing to go, but I just had to buckle down for a bit. I am sure you know the feeling.
In my 20 day absence, I decided to go ahead and jump on the gift giving post train. It is mid November after all! Though gift giving posts are kinda a dime a dozen, I am actually excited for my concept this year. I will be doing more of a gift exchange, trying to graphically juggle two people, personality traits, animals, and in this case, cities to see what would be exchanging hands. Just my attempt to bring something different to the table and incorporate some of my usual photography. I really hope you enjoy it! To the left you will find the sources for the above imagery and below you will find some other gifts that I thought New York and Paris would be eager to exchange. These guide books would be the perfect way to start (The Fashion Insider’s Guide to Paris / The Fashion Insider’s Guide to New York) Happiest beginnings to the soon-to-be holiday season!
