valleyandco There's nothing that @lhcalligraphy can't do! We had her create these beautiful holiday cards for us and they're just so lovely. We only just got them mailed off today! This year it seems like our holiday list is growing faster than we can keep up. But we're quickly reminded abut what truly matters this season: our wonderful baby, special family and friends, warm traditions, both old and new, and such fantastic clients to send holiday treats to in the first place. There's much to be grateful for. 12h

valleyandco Dear Trader Joe's, sometimes you've got just the thing. For $5.99 we scoop up a few of these little wreaths every year and add ribbon tendrils for the perfect compliment to our front porch entry cedar swag. Last year they may have stayed up through January... #vandcoliving 2d

valleyandco ...meanwhile the power is flickering as the rain pounds our old leaded stained glass windows and the wind howls. We're loving this blustery night curled up with the Christmas tree and village aglow but daydreaming about this beauty of a summertime wedding on Orcas Island.

valleyandco Tradition means so much to us. Especially during the hubbub of the holiday season {which this year is more important than ever - it's Ava's first}, we find peace and happiness in hunting for the perfect tree the weekend after Thanksgiving. Baking our favorite ice box sugar cookies. Spending time with friends and family and our incredible clients. Watching our favorite Christmas movies. It's a magical season that we find ourselves daydreaming about. This is our 6th year of having special heirloom goodies from our friends at @palomasnest created. Gifting these sweet and special presents to our clients and some friends brings us great joy and has become a tradition in itself. Thank you for that gift @palomasnest! #vandcoliving 1w

valleyandco Our entry is decked with cedar garlands and spruce wreaths, our winter village is on display, and the stockings {Aleah made} are hung by the chimney with care. We're getting into the festive spirit with some kid-friendly holiday ideas on our blog today. See what we're doing to make these fun little winter scenes in teacups! #vandcoliving 2w

valleyandco On Thanksgiving we had to say goodbye to our dear doggie Lulu. We can't sum up here how terribly sad we are, but we are grateful to have been blessed with such an incredible dog. She gave us an amazing 15 years of laughter, cuddles, protection, and love. She came into our lives as a baby and when we were just babies in college. She'd been through everything with us; funny moments, challenges and accomplishments, new adventures, and reasons to celebrate. She was our Creative Director. She loved overseeing and helping us prep for events and had many IG cameos {who can forget her Big Bad Wolf Halloween costume this year?}. She was Ava's big furry sister for 7 months and loved every moment of it. She was just the best. We will never forget her and every Thanksgiving we will remember how lucky we are to have been her parents. We love you, Lulu! Thank you to @lauramarchbanks for capturing photos just a few weeks before. 2w

valleyandco Not only was it fun co-hosting a holiday class with Jennifer from @trophycupcakes, but I got to try my hand at cupcake decorating! My second cupcake didn't make the IG cut, but these turned out so sweet. I see cupcakes in Ava's first birthday party future {luckily there's plenty of time to plan!}. {A} #vandtholiday 2w
