It's beginning to look a lot like. . .


I read on my friend Rachel's blog today that Thanksgiving is in a week. I laughed when I read this, thoroughly convinced she somehow had it confused. Um, no. She is right. Thanksgiving is a week from Thursday. Over here, far from celebrating family and friends, we keep it low key. Many families opt to travel Europe on this long weekend. We, however, will be staying put. Not yet sure what our Thanksgiving day festivities entail, but I'll be sure to let you know when we figure it out!

Thanksgiving is usually the deadline for me to order our Christmas cards- it takes a while to get them over here, just to sign, seal, and deliver them back to our loved ones in the US.

I recently heard of an offer for bloggers to get 50 free Shutterfly cards!

(Honestly) Every year I end up choosing Shutterfly because of their beautiful designs, high quality prints, and often discounted prices. If you sign up for their emails you'll recieve special promo codes throughout the year.     

This is the card I'm thinking of for this year with a picture for each of the seasons as our family has grown over the past year. I had an idea that I wanted to do something along those lines, and of course when I checked out Shutterfly they had the perfect one. Simple. Beautiful. Pictures speak louder than words.

I also like this one though. Hmm. Really there are tons of awesome choices. I could look through them all day! So many great ones to choose from. You should totally check out their holiday photo cards! You're bound to fall in love with more than one!

So if you too want free cards- check it out HERE! (updated)

**Update. Apparently I jumped the gun and wrote the blog before the directions came via email. I also sent you all to the wrong link! Oops. I updated it above. The original one I posted was for after you signed up and after you blogged. Good luck all!

**Update again, just wanted you to know I got my promo code. . .now just to use it!


  1. Wow this is so cool! I hadn't heard of this before, and ordering our cards has been on my to-do list for a few weeks. I was thinking about actually doing it tonight! How quickly did you get your code for the discount? Thanks for the info!!

  2. I likey the first one! -Yvonne

  3. Christy- I actually still haven't heard from Shutterfly. . . . so yeah. Hoping it's legit. I'll be sure to update once I hear from them.

    Yvonne- thanks for the input. I like it a lot too. Totally realized these didn't count towards the free ones. . .decisions to make :)
