Valentine/Galentine Cards

We love how holidays have pretty much just become an ode to specialty cards with adorable puns on them, and Valentine’s Day seems to be at the top of that pack.

The holiday has become less about buying each other fancy-shmancy gifts, and more about who can find the funnier food, Netflix, or animal-related card, that somehow also has to do with love. And you know what? We don’t hate it.

G&M in Boston // Jan 2016

While the flurries came down in New England this weekend, we enjoyed a girl’s weekend in Boston, filled with movies, vino, and of course… food! Because it’s never too cold to make gourmet donuts happen 🙂


First stop of the weekend: Union Square Donuts, aka heaven on earth.

Our faves? The Hazelnut Brown Butter Crunch, classic Vanilla Bean, Sea-Salt Bourbon Caramel, and the most surprising of all? A freaking Pizza Donut. We took a chance with that savory treat, and it totally blew our minds.


Quick photoshoot outside Bloc 11 after waiting 20 minutes for a forgotten egg sandwich! But the focaccia made it worth it!

We had planned on going to The Publick House on Saturday night, but due to the insane snow, we stayed in Coolidge Corner and ended up at Otto Pizza (we weren’t upset about it!)

Brittany got the Butternut Squash, Cranberry & Ricotta pie, and Reg and I split an Apple, Bacon & Red Onion and a Spinach, White Bean & Roasted Garlic. All winners!

No visit to Coolidge Corner is complete without a stop into Paper Source, where Christa picked up a lovely calendar & some Galentine’s Day cards 😉

Always fun for some much needed girl time, and we’ll be doing it again soon when the snow won’t hinder dinner plans!

Sweet Notes

Valentine’s Day can be the cause for an array of emotions, but if you’re sipping on that hater-ade, you have to admit, this holiday sure knows how to make a cute card. It’s pun-city up in here, and we’re soaking up every bit of it. It’s also becoming more and more apparent through the cards that we’ve seen, that these designers are total fat kids at heart, which we are so on board with. I mean… bagels, hotdogs, and butter? Don’t mind if I do.
