Holiday Traditions…everyone has them, and I love them! We have several in our family. Most of them were established by me and Ryan during our first Christmas as a married couple. Having traditions gives you something to look forward to every year. Maybe it’s opening a gift on Christmas eve or making a specific recipe every Christmas day. Whatever it is, it makes the holidays special and gives everyone something to look forward to all year!
Here are a few of our holiday traditions:
- Exchanging Christmas pajamas every Christmas Eve
- Looking at Christmas lights with my little sister every Christmas eve night
- Making Christmas cookies with my in-laws
- Christmas morning breakfast: french toast with cinnamon
- Watching A Christmas Story on TBS
- Sending out Christmas Cards from Minted
We look forward to these things every year! Special little details are what make or break Christmas. Every year, we have photos taken of our family so that we can have updated pictures of the kids. This year, we did it at the Christmas tree farm which was really fun! I decided to use one for our Christmas cards this year and I love how they turned out!
Minted makes the most beautiful cards for all occasions and their holiday cards are no exception. There are so many options to choose from, but I personally love the gold foil holiday cards. They are so gorgeous and add a little festive flare while remaining classy and elegant. I love the ones that we chose this year – “Merry and Bright” – because it definitely mimics the expressions on my kid’s faces. They are definitely “Merry” most of the time and bring out the smiles in each other when they are running and playing. This photo is a perfect representation of our life right now. “Hands full, heart fuller.” It is so true for our family. Of course we have our hands full and it is tiring at times, but I can’t imagine what our lives would be like without any one of them. They are so sweet (most of the time), smart and love to have fun. They bring out the cold in me and keep me on my toes all at the same time. This photo shows that and I love it.
Minted’s cards are beautiful, but I love using them each year because they are incredible when it comes to details. Their cards are thick and sturdy. The envelops are also thick and are amazing quality. Even my mom called me to tell me how much she loved the envelopes. I also love that you can upload your address book and they print them for you! A busy mom’s dream! I love using this feature because it saves me a ton of time and hand cramps. But most of all, Minted is always reliable. I never have to worry about whether or not the cards will get here in time. From start to finish, Minted makes the process of picking out Christmas cards simple and fun.
It never fails, I always get so many compliments on our Christmas cards and it makes me feel so good. I keep going back to Minted because the quality, designs, extra features and services are unlike any other. They are truly a great company and never disappoint!
