Holiday Love from Our Family to Yours

We’ve returned from the long holiday weekend. We’re exhausted, our stomachs are full of Christmas turkey, and our house is a wreck. While I spend the next week getting my Gator booty back in work mode (along with some house maintenance), I’ll share with you our little holiday postcard we sent out to our family, friends, and blog-buddies.

When I started putting together our holiday card for our first Christmas as a married couple, Mr. Knight wasn’t much help. He didn’t want to send out any cards, especially any cards with our picture on them. He said, “everyone has a gazillion pictures of us from this year, this is overdoing it.” So, since I seemed to be the only one who recognized the importance of sending a card our first year of marriage, I got to work designing.

I put together a little postcard with cut images of us from our honeymoon and images of our two little fur-babies. I had a lot of fun putting these together and the response from our family and friends have made the decision to make them all-the-more satisfying.

We ordered 100 postcards through Overnight Prints. 100 seems a bit excessive, but since I was sending some holiday love out to my Weddingbee friends too, 100 seemed like not enough (but Mr. Knight had to pull the plug somewhere). Sending postcards instead of full cards also saved us on postage (about $16 on postage).

We’ve enjoyed receiving holiday cards this year, we’ve received somewhere around 40 cards, and I have the PERFECT project for these cards to commemorate our first Christmas as a married couple. I’ve been meaning to do this project for our wedding cards too, but time seems to slip by and that project seems further and further from getting done. Hopefully I will complete this one within a few weeks of Christmas. We’ll see!

I hope all my Gator-lovahs had a wonderful holiday and are gearing up for the Outback Bowl! Go Gators!

    So cute! I vastly under-ordered this year and was disapponted not to send more. I love the postcard idea and am bookmarking it for next year!

    Yeah, you’re right, I did not think it would be cool to send more pictures of ourselves out to our family. I’m not that presumptuous. However, in the end, you really pulled off a very cute card and I was quite pleased. Of course, you didn’t mention that I had a hand in it towards the end, but, that’s okay—I still love you.

    I hope everyone had an awesome Christmas.
