It's that time again...

The obligatory Christmas card post :-)

Honestly, my favorite time of the year now starts on October 26 - my daughter's birthday. Before she came along, my favorite time of the year started on November 7 - our anniversary :-) I love jeans and sweatshirts and crisp fall air, and that rolls right into Thanksgiving and turkey and Black Friday shopping and baking stuff and not really doing a ton at work (or is that just me?) and SNOW and family stuff and Christmas trees (!!!) and trips to see family in NJ...

And now we get to kick off the season October 26, so we're in full swing here. Clearly it is time to start thinking about Christmas cards because they have to go out kind of soon... I like to get mine out the first week in December so that our family & friends can see our smiling faces for a full month. How sneaky of me to be spreading the good cheer so early, right?

We just did our annual family photo shoot and I have a bunch of great pictures to choose from. The only easy choice I have is going with Shutterfly for the cards. We used Shutterfly last year and I was so impressed with the quality of the paper and the beautiful printing! But after that? I am lost. I have a bunch of awesome pictures, they have a bunch of awesome designs...


This one is called Mod Holly and I loooooove the bright, but simple, colors.


Or something classic like the Rainbow Greetings Christmas Card? Guess you'll just have to wait and see!

Shutterfly also has photo calendars (good for grandparents, I assume?) and a variety of other photo gifts, making it super easy to give personal gifts that your family will love.

In exchange for my honest review, Shutterfly gave me 50 free photo cards, and I cannot wait to order them! Are you a blogger? Want a chance at 25 free cards this holiday season? Register here: http://goo.gl/DDw7Q

Can't wait? Shutterfly also gave me 3 codes worth 25 free photo cards each, and I'd love to share them with you! Leave me a comment below with your email address - first 3 to leave me comments get the codes.
