Snail Mail & 14 week re-cap

It’s the most wonderful time of the year and topping my list of traditions is getting the mail everyday. I cannot be the only person who gets super excited to open cards from my loved ones and see what beauty lies inside! I’m not going to lie, I take notes and immediately start planning for next year, “What company will I use? What font? Should we do a picture?” The answer to that is always no because who wants to look at a picture of me and Mike…no one.

Here are a few of my favorites designs this year.

Our card was from Etsy and couldn’t be more perfect for this Christmas. We wanted to announce baby Charlotte but wanted to do it in a way that really expressed our excitement and relayed how blessed we feel.

SO from the Mortons to you…

12 Week Re-cap

I saw this on one of the blogs I love to read and it pretty much sums up my thoughts…
