Wishing you all a very merry day after Christmas! I'm sitting here in the living room, watching the sun go up by the light of our Christmas tree. Before the rest of the family wakes up, I wanted to pop on here and share our Christmas cards. Planning, designing and sending out cards every holiday season is one of my very favorite traditions. You can see our 2014 card here and 2015 card here. But somehow, I missed sharing 2016's card here on the blog! So I'm going to share both 2016 & 2017 today. My, what's changed in just a year!
Our annual "Highlights & Wishes" is my answer to a family newsletter. Just a few short lines to update our family and friends on what's new with us each year! I think it's especially interesting to look back on our hopes for each new year. As for our 2017 wishes, we crossed off the last 3 but scrapped the second dog and big trip idea. To be honest, we were originally thinking of starting our family in 2017 but around this time last year we were leaning towards waiting another year. The second dog and trip were kind of like consolation prizes, as exciting as those two things would be! Needless to say, we changed our minds and we are so grateful that we'll be welcoming our first child as our top 2018 Highlight!
2017 Highlights - Travelling across PA for four weddings, Anthony graduating with his Bachelors degree in December, celebrating 4 years of marriage and finding out we are going to be parents next year! 2018 Wishes: A happy, healthy baby!
FYI, I know it's a little late for this year, but if you are looking for a good source for next year's holiday cards I usually order ours from Simply to Impress.
Do you save an extra copy of your Christmas card every year to keep for yourself? I started doing this when we got married and I love pulling out the album every December to put our new card in and take a look back at the past years'.
When we started sharing highlights from the previous year and wishes for the next on the back of our Christmas cards, I decided to make an album where we could hold onto an extra copy, just for us. It's so fun to look back on what has changed from year to year! My latest blog post shares what 2016 events made it onto the back of our card, and some of our hopes and goals for 2017! I'm curious, is it just me or do you order an extra Christmas card to keep too?
