~There are HOW many days until Christmas?????
It's been a few years since I've sent out Christmas cards.
Well, the last few years have been overwhelming at times and quite honestly, we were simply spent.
George and I were discussing this very thing last night --how the ease of our family has really fallen into place. Maybe it's the perspective of a new baby and simply watching this amazing creation grow and how she knows no evil of the world.
She is the connection for all of us--G, Andrew, Reagan, and myself.
She is pure happiness.
So, not only because it's Lily's first Christmas, but because we, as a family, have found more peace and even greater connection, we'll definitely be sending out Christmas cards this year!
I often scour blogs and emails and company sites for deals--I love a bargain!
In addition to simply loving a good deal, that frugality enables me to be home. What a gift!
This year, Shutterfly is offering 50 Free Cards to bloggers ! Now, that's MY kind of bargain!
The problem I'm going to face...just which one to choose!
I picked my top three:
I just recently received 50 free prints from Shutterfly for being a new customer and I took advantage of that when they had FREE SHIPPING! So, now thanks to Shutterfly I have some awesome new prints that arrived in the mail just a few days later--purely a gift!
I still have a Shutterfly Gift Card to use that I received in my baby registry, so I'm thinking about a wall calendar for 2011. I've learned to WRITE EVERYTHING DOWN because pregnancy brain turned into mommy brain! And calendars are the perfect way to record everything...what better than a calendar with my kids' faces. :)
Now....to pick the perfect photo!
Did I mention I have an obsession with photographs...
