Season Greetings!

The Thanksgiving and Christmas season are my favorite times of year, mainly due to my family. I am blessed to be close (both relationally and demographically) to my immediate and extended family, and every year we take advantage of this: brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, cousins, grandparents, great aunts, great uncles, 2nd cousins, 3rd cousins... yea it's a party.

This year, I am more excited than ever. 'Why' you ask? Because it is my FIRST CHRISTMAS AS A CLARK! This will be the year where Josh and I start our very own holiday traditions: when do we put up the Xmas tree? what will our holiday feast consist of? what holiday movies will we watch? will we open a present on Christmas Eve? Oh! The list goes on and on...

But first up on the 'Traditions List' is the wonderful Christmas card. When I got engaged, one of the first things I realized was "OH, Josh! Next Christmas we can send out a Christmas card from the Clarks...ya know, cause I'll be a Clark too!" (Yea, that's what I called the 'I-just-got-engaged-and-am-excited-about-everything' phase.)

I am hopping on the band-wagon and joining bloggers from all around (see Jessi's and Stephanie's favs!) by using Shutterfly to get things started. I have never personally used Shutterfly but I have seen their quality prints and I am beyond excited to use them to make my very first X-mas cards. The only problem is that there are too many fun and adorable choices and I CAN'T DECIDE!

Seriously, I can't decide! Oh, the woes of Christmas traditions...

***Love Shutterfly as much as I do? If you're a blogger, you can get 50 free cards for this holiday season! Click here for their promotion!***


  1. This is a toughie, but I think the second one is my favorite. We (and by "we," I obviously mean "me") just ordered the Hannigan Christmas cards, so I'll be needing your address.

  2. I'm really diggin' the 2nd one. That's just my two cents. ;-)
    I love your blog! Keep em' coming!

  3. I have to agree...the 2nd one is my fave! I also really like the last one two...I say order both! I ended up going with 2 different styles cause I couldn't decide on one!

  4. They are all great, but my favorite is the first one.

  5. I like the first one because you can go with two pictures...but I agree. I would order a variety if you can't decide!
