Perhaps it’s the culture we live in, but some days I feel like I can hardly enjoy the moment I’m in for looking ahead to the next…though Halloween is still over a week away, I have been diligently creating Christmas cards, trying to capture my two boys for a Christmas photo, and dreaming of hanging stockings in the living room.
This can’t be entirely healthy…after all, if I live this way, once Christmas rolls around I’ll already be on to Easter…so today I decided to take some time to create some simple, warm, Autumn greeting cards. Thanksgiving photo cards are a beautiful and personal way to beat the Christmas rush and have your card stand out against the slew of “holiday cards” that will be flying toward your loved ones after December 1. They are also classically American, and a good reminder to be thankful this Harvest Season:
Another idea for warming up and personalizing the Autumn days–consider sending a printed invitation for Thanksgiving dinner this year. Though a text or email is simple, a beautifully designed and printed invitation really sends the message to your guests that they are valued and appreciated:
Above all, enjoy the cooler days, crisp air, time with family and friends, and of course–delicious food! Here’s to gaining ten before the New Year! 😉
Oh, and speaking of gaining ten…I just have to include here a recipe that I used for my son’s first birthday. Pumpkin Dream Cake, and it’s just that…dreamy. The wonderful gal at Lemon Sugar even gives detailed instructions on how to assemble…Enjoy!
