We are big fans of the photo holiday card and we've been sending them out since 2006 (the year we got engaged). I have all of our old cards saved in a giant scrapbook I have of B&I full of random quotes and funny stories and our anniversary year-in-reviews for our kids someday to look back on how cheesy and adorable we are (HAH).
If you're interested, take a peek at some of our Christmas cards from yesteryear:
2007 when I went from living in Brooklyn, NY to living with Brandon in Punxsutawney, PA
Keep in mind, Mummas out there, that although Holiday cards generally look beautiful and flawless, they are only the highlight reel of usually a ridiculously large amount of mayhem that it took to get those few seconds in time.
And this is no exception for us at the Studer Zoo- this is what it looked like for a solid 15 minutes at our house (thank you, Aunt Uch, for your help in attempting to keep children and dogs occupied) when I went for the 'ole holiday photo shoot challenge.

And then, a midst the whining and antsy-pantsy, and the crazy, there was this solitary moment:
I am so grateful you make some time in your day to share with me and my words.
Honestly, it is a great privilege of mine.
Sending out peace on Earth to you (if only for a moment) this holiday season.
