2011 Christmas Card

I love Christmas card season. Cliche, but seriously, how can you not love checking the mail to see who sent you a card that day? I love it. Love seeing the pictures, reading the letters. Admittedly, I might be a little more of a nut than others since my day job consists of working with them all.year.long at Pear Tree Greetings (yes, just in case some of you didn't know, that's where I work!), but it has yet to lessen my excitement every November/December when the cards start rolling in. The only thing working there does is put a tiny little bit of extra pressure on me (okay maybe I just put this on myself) to make our cards great. This year I actually went with this Save the Date Card and turned it into a Christmas Card. Huge thanks again to Gina Zeidler for the great photography!

I also love displaying all of the cards we get. Much to the annoyance of Bryan, they stay up until probably February, maybe even March. I guess he's lucky we have a March baby now because I'll probably make sure they are taken down in time for Grayson's birthday party each year. And no, my camera lens isn't dirty, just playing with a new filter app on my phone :)

Disclaimer: In no way do I think I created THE card of ALL cards, ha. I'm happy with how they turned out, yes, but it's probably a similar thing to how we all think own children are the most adorable and everyone else's are just so-so. You know it's true, ha.

Here's to another few weeks of getting the mail with a little extra pep in your step to see what's there!
