November brings along that crisp breeze of fresh air accompanied by a bright, blue sky. People start putting up Christmas decorations, the stores stock up on goodies and send out their catalogs. The coffee shops offer the yummiest drinks of the year. There’s gathering with friends for coffee and conversation during the holiday rush. Christmas is the most joyous occasion, there are so many wonderful things about it! I am getting very excited.
The holiday season is fast approaching. I already RSVP’d to a cookie exchange, Children’s Christmas Pageant and a women’s Chirstmas tea. Sounds fun, right?
I think I will start decorating this weekend. I love savoring the season because it brings so much joy, good food and time well spent with family and friends. Most of all, I cherish the reason for the season, celebrating the birth of the King of Kings, Jesus!
One major thing that I will start today is my annual Christmas card and gift order from Shutterfly. Now that our family pictures are done I can place the order! Let me just say, I love Shutterfly! I buy all my photobooks from them and pick up prints every couple of months. The quality of their products is top notch.
At Christmas time I use them for my Christmas cards, here is the card we used last year, we received tons of compliments:
When I place my card order I make sure and hit the Photo Gift section and pick up gifts. I usually pick up 2 calendars for the Grandma’s, something for Dad to have at the office and a photobook or two for my sister with all the pictures I have of my nephew. I can never resist getting a little something special for myself, this year I think it will be an ornament with our family picture.
