You know those times when it feels like someone is reading your mind? I experienced one on Friday.
Friday morning I was having thoughts like “How is it past Thanksgiving already?!” and “Can we maybe just have a tabletop tree?” when I remembered my collaboration with Minted.com last year and the beautiful Christmas cards my wonderful blog readers helped us choose. I realized that (yikes!) it’s almost December and we’d better get busy if we want to send holiday cards out this year! I mean, we can hardly send out leftover cards with a wedding photo for our second Christmas together. Then, amazingly, just a few hours later I received an email inviting me to collaborate with
I need you help again this year! As y’all know, I’m pretty indecisive and I need your assistance collaborating with Minted again.

Realistically, this is our best selfie. Amusingly, Minted has a
If we went with the “buy now, personalize later” option and tried to get a better photo of us, I’d think I’d like this
Minted.com has lots of non-photo card choices, too. So many that it was very difficult to narrow it down to two favorites!
As I mentioned, we are sort of silly people. We enjoy puns, and Spanish is my husband’s first language, so this
Another one we like, especially in light of current events, is this
Paring it down to just four options to ask y’all about was really difficult. There are at least three more I’d love to include, but this post was getting a bit long! So what do you think:
- Selfie card?
- Photo card and try to get a better picture of us ASAP?
- Fleece Navidad?
- Or the Peace card?
Minted has an incredible variety of holiday cards, as you can see in their
