Merry Christmas from the Martins

I just love sending and receiving Christmas cards! I also love looking back on cards from previous years and seeing how I've grown and how styles have changed. Being a graphic designer by trade with a photographer for a dad, I more or less obsess over finding the best card design and getting the cutest picture each year. I search Minted, Etsy, Pinterest and Shutterfly for ideas and inspiration and then usually end up designing it myself.

Last year, it was easy. A wedding picture with a cute "Married & Merry" or "First Christmas as Mr. & Mrs." quote on it. This year, however, it took a little more time and thought. Obviously, we had to include the pups. I also wanted a photo we could print and hang in our new house for years to come! On top of all that, it seemed like the opportune time to include a picture of our new house with the new mailing address. Thank goodness for double sided cards.

I had my dad snap some family photos the last time we visited their lake house in Northwest Arkansas. I'm obsessing over all of them -- I had the hardest time deciding which one to use for our cards! So, naturally, I'm posting my favorites here to show off how incredibly adorable our little family is. Sorry not sorry.

Thanks, Daddy, for the photo shoot :)

I am counting the hours until we head back to my parent's for Christmas! We leave tomorrow (Thursday) after work and will be hiding out/cozying up at the lake all weekend long! We'll do Christmas with Cole's family in Stillwater over New Year's know you're getting old when your in-laws probably have bigger NYE plans than you do! Maybe they'll let us tag along....if not, I'll be raiding their wine cabinet. ;) 

How are you spending your holiday week? Wherever you are and whatever you do, I hope it's full of happiness and cheer. 

Merry Christmas to all!
