2014 Iceland Calendar

Friday, November 29, 2013

We hope you had an awesome Thanksgiving holiday with family and/or friends! We are staying the weekend with Yuriy's brother and had dinner with about 50 members of the Manchik clan last night. We ended the night with a roaring fireplace, a wonderfully cheesy Christmas movie, and a handful of our cousins. It's officially Christmas season!

We are so happy to share our new 2014 travel calendar featuring our photos from Iceland. Thanks to everyone who purchased our last couple of travel calendars and pushed us to make another! If you want to get one for yourself or someone on your Christmas list, do it this weekend while they are 25% off for Black Friday. We also added a bunch of new travel prints to the shop, along with the calendar.

Use the code "FRIDAY" now through Monday to get 25% off the entire shop. 

GIVEAWAY: 
We'd love to reserve the first calendar for one of our blog readers, so leave us a comment and say hello! We'll pick a name at random on Tuesday, Dec 3, at 10:00am PST (when commenting, use an email address that you check regularly).
