Christmas Card, O Christmas Card

IMG_5466IMG_5462

I seriously, SERIOUSLY debated whether or not to send Christmas cards this year. (And, guys, I LOVE Christmas cards!) For some reason I just felt this instant lethargy post-Thanksgiving that made me drag my feet. We had an amazing photographer take our family picture, but (truthfully) as cute as my gals + guy looked that day, I felt like I looked awful. (I guess everyone has bad hair days. And outfit days. And why-can’t-I-smile-right days. But usually not all at once, haha!) So I immediately put on my big girl pants and took some redo pics of just the girls and LOVED how sweet they looked. But designing + ordering them…UGH. I’m not a procrastinator by nature, but the disease attacked like a body snatcher and ALMOST convinced me to not send out cards this year. (The only motivating thought that got me through was that a few decades down the road, when the Christmas cards are done, I didn’t want to look back at the series and scoff, “Why is 2017 missing? What was my problem??”)

So I did it. But we only sent out a handful instead of the usual one million. I hope all my friends get a chance to glance at this post and pretend like they’re staring at their fridge instead of their computer. (We still love you. I promise.) Hey, this way you also get the bonus of perusing the outtakes, so yay?

Merry Christmas! Love, The Shoves 2017 ;)
