Christmas Cards

I LOVE sending and receiving Christmas cards. It seemed they came a little later this year than most. People must have been a little behind with the ordering/sending. But I love that we have a gorgeous collection from friends and family now – including two with announcements of a new baby in 2015! For me, our Christmas card is a way to recap our year for our family and friends; especially those we don’t see during the holidays.

We actually ended up ordering a second set of cards after we addressed the first 45. Who knew we had so many cards to send out this year? I went ahead and spent the extra money on the return addressing (and my sweet husband got me  a new return address stamp for Christmas!). For $18 more dollars, I could have had all of the cards addressed to the recipients but we didn’t mind writing out the addresses.

Since we sent out cards in March announcing we had moved and bought a new house, we didn’t include that on the holiday card. Instead, we included our one-year anniversary (photo by Taken by Sarah) and our trip to St. Martin to celebrate.

We got all gussied up so many times this year for our friend’s weddings that it seemed only appropriate to include a picture from one of those. And since travel is such a big part of our lives, we included a photo in front of the bean in Chicago. Spoiler alert, next year’s card will have Paris, London, Ireland, Cape Cod and Key West on it! Can you tell I’m excited for our travel?

We ordered this card from Photo Affections. I have enjoyed ordering items from them as they come quickly, look professional and are in adorable boxes. Definitely recommend trying it out if you’re looking for announcements or holiday cards!
