i cannot believe it’s that time of year again where we start thinking and planning out those holiday greetings and dreaming up all of the yummy holiday decor, meal planning, and gift giving ideas. it is such a magical time of year that gives us great opportunity to reflect, share stories and life’s news, and connect with our loved ones near and far. i look forward to holiday cards coming in every year from family and friends, seeing the growth of their season and reading about their news and the memories that were made throughout the year. it’s little things like this that simply get me feeling all warm and fuzzy and in the great spirit of the season.
this year, because of the impending arrival our wee little one, i felt like i had to prepare our cards extra early in case the growth of our family kept me too busy and distracted (which wouldn’t be a bad thing by any means!). i came across the card i wanted to use on shutterfly and picked out one of my favorite images of the girls taken at the apple orchard this fall. it’s amazing how in a matter of just a couple months i found myself going down memory lane, dreaming about the day we spent picking apples and baking up the apple pie that we devoured afterwards. Oh, the magic of photography and imagery to remind us about those moments that are kept so deep within our hearts and souls. just another reason why i love holiday cards… it’s a tiny snippet of one’s heart.
