Favorite Memory: White Flat Holiday Photo Cards

Our Christmas cards this year are a pretty great example of me getting an idea & not being able to rest until I've seen it through to completion. This is our third year partnering with TinyPrints, & even though they have a MAGICAL & vast selection of predesigned cards (I had 10 designs favorited... Like this one, this one, & this one), I couldn't get this phrase out of my head for this year's card. Fortunately... TinyPrints feels me on all the levels, & their create-your-own option was the perfect fit.

Also, I've probably spent as much time talking about how life altering TinyPrints address printing services as it would have taken me to write the addresses myself. But seriously... Life altering. May I never write our nearest & dearests' addresses on another envelope. It was LOVELY.

It's hard to imagine that we'll have a nearly 8-month-old babe joining us on next year's Christmas card. AHHH. But it's about time. Six years worth of just Jared & Kelsey on Christmas cards is like fiiiiine... But the world's prettiest baby will make it 934857983745x better.

The Cards of Christmas Past

It's crazy to think that this is our FOURTH Christmas playlist, & also that this time last year, I really truly believed with every ounce of me that I would be managing a puppy this time this year, & am instead currently being kicked in the bladder by the sweet angel (...) in my belly.

I'm still holding out for that puppy next year, btw. Just putting that out there, 2017 Jared.

Well! I was worried there wouldn't be any good songs left after last year's two hour & thirty-one minute playlist but GUESS WHAT! I FOUND THREE HOURS & TWO MINUTES OF MUSIC FOR THIS YEAR. Guys, this one's real wack. All over the place. But Jared's Nat King Cole pick & my gospel choir winner are all there, complete with Weezer, Run-DMC, & Leslie Odom Jr... The only man who can convince Jared & I that My Favorite Things should be played at Christmas.

I managed to cut into our tiny copper Christmas lights string as I was trimming a stray branch on our TINY tree (read: this was really hard to mess up, but I somehow managed it), & our replacement lights are due to arrive today, so we will for sure be listening to our new playlist while we REDECORATE our 3.5 ft. of miniature tree tonight.
