It's that time of year again for us to send out Christmas cards. This time around I knew I wanted our rental home to be part of the memory we were capturing. This year had a lot of unexpected change for us and it's a season of life I do not want to forget or let pass by too quickly. So this is us embracing the newness this year has brought with open arms. This is also us hoping the old picnic table that came with the house does not snap. HA.


Just so you know the black lines around the edge of the cards were added by me so you can see the shape. In all realness the card edges just run white and are stunning that way. The back of our Minted card this year has a little run down of our year. I always put a card in the kids baby books so I thought this way they could also see what they were up to in 2014. I hope to continue this tradition for years to come. I think it will be fun when they move off to then take all the cards over the years and make a poster type print of them. It will then give me a chance to "remember when" I was young and wrinkle free.


As always if you receive a card from us just pretend you did not see it yet!

Now to the fun part!
