Merry Christmas Eve! Hard to believe tomorrow is Christmas!! This post is late getting up because the nasty flu bug hit our home yesterday leaving this mama in bed all day today which is definitely not how I wanted to be spending my day! Praying we are all healthy by tomorrow! One of my favourite Christmas traditions is sending our Christmas cards to all our family and friends each year! I remember the first year my daughter was born being so excited to finally being able to send out a family photo on our Christmas card – we even had Christmas photos taken just for our Christmas cards! I always loved (and still do) recieving Christmas cards from special people in our lives and proudly hang them on our fridge to enjoy all year long and I longed for the day when we would have a little family photo of our own to send to everyone! Now here we are 4 years later and I still get just as excited to send them out! I make my mailing list than its time to find the perfect layout! This year I went with Minted to print our Christmas cards! I loved what they did for my baby’s first birthday photo collage that I knew I could trust them to do a great job with our Christmas cards!One of the things I love about Minted is that they are like a one shop stop. Minted is a design marketplace of independent artists from around the globe and it features not only holiday cards, birth announcements, wedding invitations but you can do custom photo art and choose from a selection of amazing artwork from their site and you can even have it framed and shipped right to your door step. When I was choosing our Christmas card I naturally wanted to go with something that reflected “us” and when I found the layouts with the gold foil feature I knew I had to have that! I was excited to use our family photos that my friend Christine took of us and I think of cards turned out perfectly!

  • Infertility is something I never worried about, never even thought about until it was my journey. I didn’t chose to suffer from infertility but I would chose it over and over again because it led me to each one of them - my three biggest miracles and today we celebrate #worldadoptionday
