our christmas card, 2013

My Christmas cards will finally be sent out today. Bright and early this morning. I addressed a stack of Christmas cards last night in record time and breathed a sigh of relief as I finished the last one and made it to bed at a normal time.

I absolutely love checking my mail this time of year, each day I’m greeted with fun and festive cards from sweet family and friends and I love seeing what everyone chooses for their card.

This year I went a different route with our Christmas cards. Instead of the standard picture and message of holiday cheer, I offered up a glimpse of our year. Just a few highlights to fill everyone in on the busy and exciting year we have had so far.

I also went with a completely different color scheme and I love how pretty and fun the colors turned out. I was a little nervous about going with something other than traditional, but I am so pleased with the final product. I used our beach pictures from this past summer since we had fall pictures taken a little later in the year this time. The pictures were taken by CB Photo and Design, our personal favorites.

Those beach pictures are some of my very favorites and I was happy to get to use them again. I don’t ever get tired of looking at the ones of BK on the beach, I obviously had to include that one on the back.

The cards are from ErinCondren.com, for the past few years we have used EC and I am always pleased with the quality of their work.
