Love Ink? Hate cancer? Us too. This Holiday Season, we’ve teamed up with Maurices, a department store for fashion savvy young women, to fight cancer while spreading holiday cheer. Maurices has designed a special card for us in Ink that is free to send, and supports a good cause. For every one of these cards sent, Maurices will donate $1 to the American Cancer Society Hope Lodge. The Hope Lodge offers cancer patients and their caregivers a free, temporary place to stay when their best option for treatment is in another city.
The Maurices card can be found in our Holiday collection, and is free to send. Thank you to our friends at Maurices for their generosity, and to the American Cancer Society for this wonderful program.

2 oranges, cut into half-moons
2 lemons, cut into half-moons
1 Persian cucumber (see Notes) or one 3-in.-long piece English cucumber, washed and sliced
2 cups Pimm’s No. 1 (see Notes)
4 cups Sprite or other lemon-lime soda $
6 to 8 large sprigs mint, crushed gently, plus a few loose leaves
Fill 2 pitchers 1/4 full with ice. To each, add a layer of orange slices, a few lemon slices, and a layer of cucumber slices. Repeat the layering. Pour in the Pimm’s and Sprite, dividing between pitchers, and mix with a long-handled spoon. Poke mint sprigs and leaves down into drink. Divide drink among 8 tall glasses, with a few slices of fruit and cucumber in each glass, along with some mint leaves.
Notes: Persian cucumbers are small, thin-skinned, virtually seedless, and very tasty. They’re sold at well-stocked grocery

Yesterday may have been the greatest days in the Sincerely office. Ever. For some time now, Wednesdays have been dubbed “Waffle Wednesday”, so it’s become standard to walk into an office filled with the aroma of waffles on the iron, and a spread of maple syrup, fruit, whipped cream, and homemade butter. Yes, we are spoiled. Yesterday, something special happened: The gals from the SF Vietnamese pop-up, Rice Paper Scissors came in, set up shop, and served DELICIOUS Vietnamese coffee to a rotating door of friends, fans and building mates. Needless to say, we were a caffeinated and happy bunch. We could get used to this.
