Calm & Bright

Happy Friday, everyone!  Can you believe it's the last Friday before Christmas?  I personally can't...  I think back on my childhood years when Christmas would take FOREVER AND A DAY to arrive.  Now it comes entirely too fast!!

For those of you who celebrate Christmas, I hope that you have a wonderful holiday that can be described as calm and bright...  well, unless you have small children, then it will be chaotic and bright like mine will be with my nephews around!!

I'll leave you with my holiday card this year.  And yes, I am probably the ONLY unmarried person that sends a photo card!  But they are easier and I feel like they are more apt to be hung up than a hand written card.  So a photo card it is for this unmarried gal!


Over the course of the next few days, I am looking forward to a Christmas celebration with my boyfriend, Christmas at the lake with my family, and a visit with my dear aunt that I don't get to see very often!  I'll be back after the holiday with some end of the year posts!

Have a safe and Happy Christmas!

Do you/did you send holiday cards?

We are SUCH brain twins because I posted a picture from our holiday card today too! We got yours yesterday and loved it - those are such great pictures of you! Aaaand I was thinking how I love that you send a photo card of yourself each year!

Merry Merry Christmas my friend!

Christmas does come entirely too quickly these days. Maybe it's because I'm getting older and I'd like it to not come so quickly ;) Have a very happy Christmas and wonderful new year!

For the record, we hang ALL holiday cards in our house. We might need to get a little closer to be reminded who sent them to us, but non-photo cards are adored just as much as photo cards. =)

As you know, we sent cards this year. I NEVER sent photo cards when I was single or even married, but now that we have Gavin, it's a (mostly) fun project (when things go smoothly) that I look forward to doing annually!

Merry Christmas, friend!

Merry Christmas Lisa! I did send Christmas cards - got them out yesterday. A little later than I usually do it but things have been busy! Hope you have a great holiday with your family!

I love photo cards and my wall is full of them! I even keep them in an album and they are fun to look back on and see how families have grown & multiplied over the years!

Amber @ A Little Pink in the Cornfields said...

I completely agree with you, photo cards are probably more likely to go on the wall. I also cannot seem to make myself throw them away, so I have photo cards from several years on my fridge... lol

I did send out cards this year but they went out yesterday, so I am sure some people will get them after Christmas. Oh well, I am proud of myself for even getting them done this year!

I love your card. And, I love you! Enjoy your Christmas!

Your card is super cute. I usually send cards, but not this year. I always love getting the photo cards from others. Looking forward to getting our wedding photos and having some professional shots of us to put up on the walls or maybe use for a Christmas card.

I love hanging cards (both photo & non-photo, I guess cause for a long time no one sent photo cards but i liked to look at the designs!) and we have 1.5 doors covered with them so far. Makes me so smiley to look at our friends/family and their notes (or photos to us daily).

I think next year I might do a hand written card with a cool design on it with photos inside. We'll see if that actually happens :)

Have so much fun tomorrow!!!

merry Christmas Lisa! Great card. You've had a wonderful year.

Raquelita said...

You know what? I think it's awesome when unmarried people or nontraditional families send out photo Christmas cards, too. I can't believe we're already so close to Christmas.

Jeanie said...

I love your photo card (and long before Rick came about, I did the photo letter, so you're not quite the only. Maybe close!

Have a beautiful and blessed Christmas, spending it with those you love and who love you, those who give you joy and those who make you smile. You deserve no less and much more!

Love the card! I hope you have a fabulous Christmas Lisa :)

Stephany said...

Great card! I like sending handwritten cards but they are a lot of work! I hope you have a fabulous Christmas. :)

I posted our "holiday card" yesterday. And by that I mean I posted our Thank You card that we've been sending out for wedding gifts. I figured it didn't really make sense to mail out a card (esp since it would prob have a wedding picture on it), at the same time I was sending thank yous.

I definitely love the photo cards and especially love that you do them :) Yours is up on my door right now!

I hope you have a wonderful Christmas!!!

Lisa-Marie said...

Hello Lisa! I am doing a bloggy catch up - work has gotten in the way of everything these past weeks. I love your card, and the photos you've chosen represent you so well.

Enjoy the festive season my lovely!

Amber said...

Love your card this year!!! Hope you're having a great time with family!

Yep, I've sent Christmas cards every year since I was 21. I get fewer and fewer every year though, so I think the tradition is dying out.

I love your card! As you know, I send one out, and I enjoy all the fun ones I get back, especially hand made ones or photo cards!
