Now, my family's newsletter has become increasingly bizarre, especially in the past few years. The humor somehow got madly twisted into an inside joke / our weird sense of humor, and now I'm fairly certain that anyone who doesn't directly know us must think that we're a bunch of loonies. But we - as a family unit - never pay that any mind, and my father specifically takes a great deal of pride in crafting the perfect narrative, which oftentimes comes paired with another strange, photo-shopped visual. Don't ask, I promise you won't get it.
In my personal life, I've also taken a liking to sending out Christmas cards. I've dumbed down the script of the newsletter into a quick little note in a greeting card, paired with an adorable picture of myself and Shep. I did this for two main reasons: 1. I write a blog (this one, duh), so anyone who wants to read my ramblings on the reg can just come here, but also, 2. I enjoy picking out the greeting cards a lot more than I probably should. I take interest year-round in visiting different websites and stores before settling on one (or in most cases, multiple box sets) to send out.
I thought that now is a perfect time to share, so here are this year's top five favorite Christmas cards to help spread that good happy holiday cheer.
1. Rifle Paper Co.'s Joyeux Noël ($16 for 8). One of my favorite brands. VERY hippie-friendly in all of their products. They also did a collab with Paper Crown (of Lauren Conrad fame).
2. Zeichen Press's Are We There Yet ($20 for 8)... because you know they must have thought that.
3. O Plus D's Happy Holidays Bitches ($4.50 for 1). This one is for all my main ladies, a little bit of vulgar holiday love.
5. Elum Designs' Most Dashing ($16 for 6). Ideal for all the people who you can't send inappropriate cards to, like coworkers and / or landlords.
