{ Stephenson Winter Bucket List // Christmas Cards 2017 }

Y'all it is my favorite time of the year - Christmas card season! I absolutely love coming home and going to the mailbox and receiving Christmas cards from my friends and family! I guess this is what adult life is like...literally racing to get home to see who we got a Christmas card from! I know I say that every year but it just makes me so happy!

Timmy and I have been sending out Christmas cards since 2014 and we have used Shutterfly and Minted, but I think I find many more designs I like on Minted than I do Shutterfly. The card I choose was featured in my inspiration post and once I put our picture in the design, I knew it was the card for us!

We wanted a simple card, because the picture we choose we were holding a banner and we didn't want the card to be too busy. In the end I am obsessed with our card, but aren't I every year? 

We don't typically pick a photo to go on the back of our card, but when we took this photo at Thanksgiving, I became obsessed with how good it turned out [gotta love the new iPhone 8 camera & portrait mode]. 

When picking the picture, it really wasn't difficult. We took our pictures last month and when she brought out the banner I was so excited and was hoping that particular photo would be Christmas card worthy, and luckily it was!
