This year, the husby and I are forgoing individual gifts for each other to go in on something together, and save moola for our upcoming house renovations! I'm pretty okay with this, because I can never think of more than two things I want for Christmas anyways. We're going a December of merriment instead, and it's worked out nicely so far! Thanks to this idea on pinterest, after Thanksgiving, I wrote up 24 holiday celebrations and threw them in one of my wedding shower decorations. Each day, we pull one out, and do something together. There are times that we have to put one off a day, but so far, we have done all of them, and it's defiantly a great way to celebrate the holiday season.

This meant that we are milking the wedding photos all the way into our Christmas cards. I ordered these off Minted right after Thanksgiving and could not be happier with them. I love love love the quality of the cards, and ordered envelopes and address labels, which made things easy-peasy. We have gotten lots of compliments on them, and I am so so glad I took the time to pick out these gems!
