New Blog – Touches of Blush

I have something exciting to tell you all! I have moved locations and I will no longer be posting on this site! Wishful Whisking was great to me for the last 2 years but no longer reflects my style, and it is simply time to move on and start fresh! I will be posting on my new blog! So please follow my new journey over there and all my journeys as a newlywed!


Our Christmas Cards


I have always awaited the day I could send my very own Christmas card. The month of December is seriously the most exciting time for mail, everyday checking it is a treat. Getting to see everyone’s family photos and the different styles of cards adds a little flicker of excitement to my day.

Since I am married, I finally get to join in on the fun and I could not be more obsessed with how our very first Christmas card turned out! We used Minted, which is absolutely great! Not only are our cards beautiful; they addressed each envelope for free! We used Minted for our wedding invitations, pictured below, as well. We could not be more thrilled!

Puffy and Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

Since getting married in October, Nathan and I have not gotten to spend a Sunday together (not including our month long honeymoon in Europe, of course). Today we got to spend the day together and Nathan suggested we make chocolate chip cookies, binge on Netflix, and soak up our Christmasy home. I could not imagine a better way to spend a Sunday. This is simply a delicious recipe I would make again and again. Hope you enjoy… wedding and honeymoon pictures to come!
