Lauren of Lauren Heim Studio reached out to me a few months ago and asked if I would be interested in an art print for my followers, to which the answer was a quick "HECK YES"! (scroll towards the bottom of the post for two free art prints and my practical guide to meal planning!) For a bit of background: I found Lauren while browsing through hand lettering on Instagram a few years ago. I immediately fell in love with her polished and flowy lettering style. I sent her an email along the lines of "Can you do some lettering for my wedding that's two years from now? I'm just really excited to see it already." and she knocked it out of the ballpark with some custom lettering for us! I think this ended up being the only custom thing I had done (other than getting my dress fitted), so her letters are extra special when I look back at wedding photos.
Then, I moved to Kansas City for grad school and saw Lauren post about a pop-up stand at my favorite adorable shopping center, so this happened...

And then last February I was looking for some self care/a quick escape from school so I went to one of Lauren's workshops!
Let's just review this photo, shall we? Cute place setting: check. Galentine's Day decorations? Check. Generous slice of cake from Dolce Bakery? Check and check, because I had two.
Anyway, Lauren is the sweetest human being ever with a heart of gold and insane lettering talent. She also loves on her customers well with free prints, like this one...
This one makes me tear up a bit every time I see it in my home.
So when she reached out about this collaboration print and wanted ideas, I pretty much said "Tacos or bust"! and she came back with this, which is better than anything I could ever dream up:
There's two versions (with and without the "Let's Taco Bout It" lettering). Simply download, print, cut down to an 8x10" (if you prefer!) and frame!
And of course, I couldn't let her followers go without a freebie, so here's a little something nutrition related for y'all as well! So, here's:
