The Annual Holiday Card Debate

Every year around this time I start thinking about our annual Christmas card. I've been sending holiday photo cards for the past 4 years, and am planning to carry on this tradition this year. I know I always love tearing into cards hoping to receive Christmas photo cards, as they are the ones I hang on to year after year, so they are something I'm happy sending - maybe others on my holiday mailing list have the same excitement.

Last year I hunted through about 20 sites looking for the perfect photo cards to ultimately end up unhappy with the card we picked. This year I was so excited to find some really fun designs at Shutterfly. I even loved their selection of return address labels - a one stop shop.

We took some really great photos in Mexico last week of Jason and I that I plan on using in our holiday card this year. I'm really looking froward to the holidays this year!

A few of the holiday cards from Shutterfly that I'm debating from include:



What do you typically do for your holiday cards?

Create Possibilities

This past week the card I selected from my Today is the Day pack is "Create Possibilities." I've been attempting to create possibilities in a few different ways, some I'm not ready to announce in such a public manner yet - but stay tuned and I may disclose a few things that are up my sleeve.

One of the things I have decided to do and share is that I'll be entering my first photo contest as I mentioned earlier in my Balloon Classic blog post. I've been pondering about what to do with my budding photography skills, and there are a few different ways I'm able to show my "work." So here is to the new possibility of being a artist with some credit to my name.

Colorado Balloon Classic Balloon Glo Pictures

This weekend was stuffed full of life.

On Saturday night J & I drove down to Colorado Springs for the Colorado Balloon Classic. I wanted to attend the Balloon Glo - and it exceeded all of my expectations. I might say it was one of the coolest things to experience.

We watched them get the balloons inflated.

And when all the balloons would glow, the entire field would light up as people cheered. It was just breathtaking.

I'm debating entering my first photo contest and submitting a picture of the balloons, I just need to pick my favorite of the photos.

It makes me want to attend another balloon festival, and I already know that next year I want to stay in the Springs so we can watch the launch the next morning.

Watching You, Watching Me

Took this picture last weekend and thought it was too funny to not post. This little guy tends to climb on our balcony a lot too. He is always around just watching, waiting, in hopes that you will leave him some food. Sorry little guy, you gotta find your food somewhere else...
