Etsy sends out daily and weekly emails about various topics - there's a general, daily email called "finds" along with a few others - "gifts", "fashion", and others.

However, we completely forgot that Etsy has a wedding email as well...until today, when we suddenly started getting hits from email accounts!

It's something we're still working on, since it doesn't come quite as naturally to us as creating things.
Today, we went out to our favorite sushi restaurant to celebrate Matt's birthday! I have class tonight so we're going to go out to dinner tomorrow - a German restaurant we drive past constantly. In celebration, check out our new birthday card design:
