When I was a nanny the family I worked for introduced me to the wonderful world of Shutterfly. They made these super cute holiday cards with the kids on the front and I was blown away. They looked great and they were affordable – how do you go wrong?
Growing up, sometimes we would send holiday cards, sometimes we wouldn’t. My mom started doing it more as we got older – probably because she had more time without the damn kids running around all the time. I’ve always dreamt of the day I would start sending out my own family holiday cards.
I’m that dorky.
One year I tried sending out some holiday cards on my own but there wasn’t enough oomph to them.
This year though… this year is the start of something so awesome. Today I put together and ordered our first holiday card as a future official family! *squeee*
I’m not going to post it because I want it to be a surprise for the people that get them (because obviously you’ve waited your whole life for this and I wouldn’t want to ruin all you fun) but trust that they’re adorable. It felt so awesome to make my very first family card. David doesn’t like pictures but funny story – if he thinks he’s getting out of this deal ever he’s so screwed. Picture cards forever!
Oh and in awesomeness – I order them today and I already got an email saying they have been made and are on their way. What?!?! So stoked! Ka-chow!
Yay we’re getting married. Yay we’re building a family. Yay for Christmas, holiday cards, and new beginnings.
“A happy family is but an earlier heaven.” George Bernard Shaw
Well I’m in.
