Beautiful things

26 Jul

Whoa! It has been over a month since I last posted (oops!) and lots has happened since then including vacation, 4th of July, new website building, and lots and lots of invitations and programs!! Summer is cruising you guys.

As many of you know the last week in June I mentioned that Ginger P Designs would be closed and on vacation.. and I need to thank a lot of you who were so accommodating during that time since I was disconnected from the world of stationery orders! But I have been meaning to share some pics from our BEAUTIFUL and AMAZING trip. My hubby and I wanted to see Europe since neither of us have been and we thought now would be a good time to go since we dont have any munchkins running around yet! Two things were important factors on our trip decision: 1. we wanted to see a lot of places in a short (week) amount of time 2. we didn’t want to worry about getting from point A to point B and so we decided on a Mediterranean Cruise! and let me tell you, it was perfect and I highly recommend it. And now for some pics…

Port in the French Riviera

Handsome enjoying a beverage in France after the beach

One of the ridiculous cars parked outside the Monte Carlo Casino in Monaco – BMW taxis no big deal…

one of the awesome little villages in Cinque Terre, Italy

Breathtaking views in Cinque Terre, Italy

Beautiful Amalfi Coast – Amalfi, Italy

On the gorgeous church stairs in Amalfi…. Shopped a lot in Amalfi…

Time to go home – thank you Europe for a trip we will never forget!!

I just showed you about 2% of our photos we took, but as you can see from that tidbit it was beautiful and so much fun!!! Sorry for the random pics of just me posing but the hubster was snappin pics every time I turned around haha. We also got to meet so many interesting people from around the world on our cruise and it was hilarious because everyone thought we were from Norway (Hubby’s name is Bjorn) and then when we did correct them saying we were from Minnesota they wanted to know how we were doing in the summer heat over there lol…. well you see MN isn’t always a frozen tundra…

A few other beautiful things to note:

Kristine + Ryan’s invitations!! Kristen asked if she could incorporate one of her engagement photos (we printed it on the back of the response card) into her hint of lace invitations we just completed and oh my gosh I think they turned out just stunning don’t you?? Loving the navy printed on our ivory matte card stock

This summer’s flowers! It only took me three summers to finally get it right (and my mother’s watering help while on vacation) but I can grow and keep flowers looking pretty 🙂 I swear last year at this time I already killed all of them off haha. Now if only I could master my cooking skills…

This summer has been filled with beautiful things so far and it is going fast! Hope you are enjoying yours!!

cheers, Gina
