December is finally here and I cannot believe how fast it arrived ! We’ve been decking just about every corner of our new little space for the holiday season and it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! It’s fun decorating a new space and we wanted it to feel extra cozy. So I’ll be sharing the finishing touches on here soon.
Over the weekend Kevin and I had our wonderful friend stop by to help us with our idea for our holiday card. We’ve been sending one out every year since we moved to NYC and look forward to receiving all the mail this month from family & friends. I usually designate a little spot to hang the cards now that most are photos cards ! This year we knew we wanted to not just incorporate a holiday theme but also as a life update. At first I was going to do this right away, but then held off.
Kevin thinks we’re probably the last people on earth mailing holiday or new year cards, but I disagree! I look forward to coming up with what we’ll do each year. This year was a little more close to home, but in the past we’ve found some great spots around the city for our photos. This is ours from last year as we celebrated our first married Christmas!
This year the front of our card will be more traditional and the back is playful as our “we moved” announcement.
We created our photos through Shutterfly and I’ve been pleased with them in years passed and their shipping is free and arrives fast. They always have a great special going on and if you need a promo code, use this one for 50% off or a free 8x8” photo book! CODE: X4DU-A7Y8-R28G-KMCJGX. Minted is also another great spot for cards!
I’ve shared mine and Kevin’s outfit details in the widget below.
Hope everyone’s December is off to a great start!
