christmas card time!
we’ve sent out a christmas card every year of our marriage so far.
so far. this year we especially live away, being further than ever and having
been on the road for 5 months now (finally settling in amsterdam in january!).
most of our close friends and family haven’t even known where we are on a given
day… so this has made sending christmas cards even more important this year to
make sure our friends and loved ones don’t forget us! :) even though life is currently
crazy, i made sure to go online and design a christmas card through tinyprints…
(always through tinyprints :)
them home with a friend to be mailed from the states since the postal system in SA isn’t very
reliable. chase thought (or still thinks) i am a little bit ridiculous for going to all the effort this
year, but i think it’s even more meaningful this year as we will be across the globe for the
holidays & not home for the first time. i also think it’s just a necessity and such a fun way to
mark each year. i always stick them in the back of our year photo books to keep forever.
i knew one photo wouldn’t work to sum up 2015. i found the most darling card design on
tinyprints with spots for multiple pictures and filled them with some of our favorites from
backpacking europe. (don’t ask chase how many times i switched photos in and out
trying to decide!) i LOVE how they turned out, and i already sent these out to arrive this
first week of december… so i’m sharing a little taste of them here today since it’s not too late
to make and order yours! just please send us one, even though at the moment we
don’t have an address until january…haha, our life!
of picking the right picture, stamping, addressing, and mailing never overrules the benefit of sharing
our stages and celebrating the season with loved ones. they are just one of life’s happy things!
addressing away! (i very sloppily photoshopped addresses out haha)
^^ i kept going back and forth between the colorful background
and white one, but eventually went with the festive colors.
they just somehow matched our colorful europe photos better!
i seriously love all of the designs and it’s so fun to make a card each year.
happy december!! it may be 90 degrees in cape town, but christmas is in the air.
