I'm so glad you are here. I'm Elizabeth and this is the blog. This is the space I tend to. The place I share my heart and our stories. I pack these pages full of tips, stories, adventures, travels, outfits, and recipes. It's a little bit of everything and a whole lot of me. My hope is that these words & photos would encourage & inspire you. That being here will brighten things at least a little bit. Please stick around & explore. There is something here for everyone!

Sign-Up for the Gift Exchange!

Thatch & Thistle goodies. use code OATSGIFTGUIDE2013 for 15% off ($20 or more)

Monday is the last day to sign-up for the Great Christmas Exchange! if you are still on the fence about it, you should just do it because it is going to be way fun! i also will be posting about the Oak + Oats gift guide to help you get ideas and discounts so really it is a win-win!!

this season is a perfect time to come together and share our lives. if samantha and i lived in the same town (and you all did too) we would have a huge holiday party at one of our houses with hot coco and a fire in the fireplace! one of you (wouldn’t be me) would convince the rest of us to bundle up and go caroling. we would sing off key and hand out plates of homemade cookies. we would then find our way back into the cozy house and take turns opening the gifts under the tree.

because we live states apart (& some of you even live in other countries!) this gift exchange is the next best thing! we will assign you a “secret Santa” and you will stalk them and shop for them. then all of our mail will be passing in the air as our packages arrive on each other’s doorsteps. we will then open our boxes with glee and take too many pictures so we can blog, tweet, instagram, and facebook our goodies. it will be a blast! to read more detailed information & sign- up CLICK HERE!!!
