It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas + Giveaway

The first Christmas that I was married, it was crazy. We had only been married for four months and were having to hash out who we would spend Christmas with, our intense (!!!) travel schedule, and a budget for gifts. As we decorated our new home and worked out some of the details, I relaxed (a little - grin!) and started enjoying myself.

One of the things I most looked forward to—amidst the chaos—was sending out our very first Christmas card together. I had the perfect picture in mind from our wedding and was excited to design a card and get it in the mail. Since then, we've sent out an annual photo Christmas card and it's one of the highlights of our Christmas season. I enjoy addressing the envelopes, stuffing the cards in, licking the envelopes, stamping each one, and dropping them in the mail. It's a special time that I spend reflecting on how blessed we are to have such wonderful family and friends.

Shutterfly has an amazing selection of Photo Christmas Cards and their new collection is now online! It may seem a bit early to be choosing a Christmas card. If you're anything like me though, it will be a relief to get this one thing checked off your massive to-do list.

There are so many designs to choose from—something for everyone—and I love all of the creative designs that Shutterfly offers. I have the hardest time choosing just one, but here are a few of my favorites.

Be sure to check out the latest special offers as Shutterfly is always offering new discounts, which is sure to help out with the Christmas budget! (I never order without a discount!)
