Christmas Cards

For me, one of the most magical parts of the holiday season is receiving Christmas cards.

I can remember eagerly running out to the mailbox each December afternoon when I was little and hunting through the various catalogues, small parcels, and envelopes, so hoping for a Christmas card or two.

My favorites were the cards that featured illustrations of cozy towns or funny reindeer. I loved it when a family friend or relative would include photos or an annual letter of sorts. I would read every word of my dad's boss' family update with immense interest or look at baby photos of my mom's childhood friend's children and awe over how cute they were.

Holiday cards always feel so warm and personal.

This year, I am sending out my very own Christmas cards.

Which makes me feel like quite the adult!

When we were in Harbor Springs, Michigan this past August, I found a set of cards that I just loved and had to purchase. Look at that big yellow moon! And the snow!

My favorite part of these cards though is the Irish blessing: May you have warm words on a cold evening, a full moon on a dark night, and a smooth road all the way to your door.

I also went out and bought a second set at TJ Maxx. These ones are not nearly as quaint, but I do love the glitter and pastels!

I'm also including this photo in each from the photoshoot my friend Meg did with Clementine and me this past fall.

I bought a neat Christmas card/ornament chandelier from Crate and Barrel at the end of last season, so I cannot wait until I receive my first card and can put it to use!
Happy writing and reading! :)
