Merry & Married! Our First Christmas Card As Mr. and Mrs.

It’s Christmas time!! I cannot believe the holidays are already right around the corner. I told myself I was going to try prep for Christmas early this year- including ordering our first Christmas card, holiday shopping, and decorating our house…(I clearly thought we were going to be in our new home sooner haha). Since we aren’t, we will have to wait and see if we get in early enough to decorate. BUT, that has given me more time to stay on top of our Christmas card and gifts!! I spent the entire weekend decorating my in laws house with my mother in law and auntie in law. It was so much fun and their house is an absolute dream! My mother in law has also been baking the past three days and still has a couple more recipes in mind so our tummies are so so happy and full of cookies, holiday breads, and bars. There are so many countless reasons why this time of the year is my favorite!! I also have taken advantage of this sales weekend and gotten nearly all my holiday shopping done! Best feeling. (Make sure to check out my gift guides and cyber Monday sales!!) Now for our Christmas card!

Shutterfly is my go to for anything photo related. Whether it’s photo books, cards, or random gifts for my friends and family, I am always ordering through them. I was excited to get a card together this year using one of our wedding photos since the only other photo I have sent out was one of our engagements on our Save The Dates. I love the simplicity of this design I found! It is the “painted merry christmas card” if any of you end up looking for it! They are having an awesome cyber Monday deal, up to 50% off Christmas cards so today would be a perfect day to order! Also, they have custom envelop colors and envelop liners- of course I went with the gold!! Receiving Christmas cards from our friends and fam is actually one of my favorite things about December; I am so happy to be a part of sending one out this year!! 

I hope you guys have a great week! Our Christmas parties officially start this weekend; we have one Friday night, Saturday night, AND Sunday night. I am bursting with happiness that the season is finally here!! Happy Monday! Xx Karlie Rae
