There is something magical about Christmas. The whole season makes walking into Target feel like something wonderful is about to happen. The chill in the air and the twinkly lights makes me giddy with joy. The faith that goes into that one day a year makes me feel heavy with anticipation on Sunday mornings.
So, here I am 6 days out from Halloween and I can’t stop thinking about Christmas cards. Since I’m a full-blown grown-up this year — with a house, husband, dogs… it’s probably time that I send out Christmas cards of my own. Not that I have a picture picked out or any real plans to take one. Isn’t that the point of Christmas card shopping? It’s with the best, most true intentions – beautiful natural backdrop, perfect happy smiles… then it gets down to the wire, you pick the photo of your family wearing Mickey Mouse ears at Disney World and call it a day.
Obviously I’m still in the beautiful intentions portion of this time-table. And, here’s what I’m dreaming over… I’ve narrowed it down from 44 to 6. If that tells you anything about my 1.) love of pretty designs and 2.) love of Christmas.
I’ll be spending the next couple weeks widdling 6 down to 1 — so stay tuned for the final pick! Do you send holiday cards? What’s your current favorite?
