Christmas Cards

I had grand plans this year for our Christmas cards. We spent a few days in Galveston, TX at the beach after visiting Ty's sister and her family in Houston. I had searched the internet for a photographer and had a beach photo session scheduled. We experienced some unusual beach weather with freezing temperatures, rain, and strong winds. Unfortunately, we had to cancel our photo session. The sun did come out on the morning we were packing up to leave. I convinced Ty to take a photo on the beach using the self-timer on our camera. We got one shot of the three of us and it turned out okay. I think it will be making an appearance on our Christmas cards. It's not quite what I had in mind, but what could I do?

Thankfully, I've never had to worry about finding the perfect card. Minted has a great selection of Christmas cards with a lot of options to personalize, from the shape of the card to the text to the back of the card. I know no matter what picture we end up with it will be a quality card.  They also have a great feature called Find it Fast to plug your picture into the cards and scroll through all of their options. It makes selecting the perfect one so much easier!

christmas wish list

wish list

1. kate spade tortoise drop earrings (currently on sale at nordstrom)
2. large round basket from target (i would love to have a couple of these for toys and laundry)
4. gold ray-ban aviators, size small

I love gifts. I don't mean receiving them, although that is great, and this is my personal christmas wish list. I mean I love giving gifts, I love seeing what other people are giving, wanting, etc. This time of the year people are posting gift guides and I love looking through them and getting ideas. I was really excited to get my December issue of Southern Living in the mail and look through their gift guides. Does anyone else love this as much as me?!
