Why Christmas Cards are a Big Deal Here

Christmas cards have always been a thing at our house. Just ask my husband.

Today, I’m sharing how they’re my love language and why I just can’t quit them over at Your Merry Mailbox. The truth might surprise you. I have my real-life friend, Britt, to thank for letting me know about YMM. Y’all. It’s like my dream blog. You know how much I love cards, of any kind, and they have such great inspiration. Oh, and did I mention they’re Aggies?

Enjoy the read and the photos! Thanks, Katy and Cindy!

    We recently moved to Austin and had yet to send out change of address cards. I know you’ll be shocked to hear that my Christmas card looks very similar to yours! 😉
    LOVE the mural!

    I love sending Christmas cards too! Gifts are my love language. Aaaand, buying gifts for literally everyone just isn’t in the budget. So, putting the work into designing a card and sending it out totally satisfies my need to gift.

    I love sending and receiving Christmas cards. We’ve gotten so few this year. We’re having a particularly hard Advent and I run to the mailbox every day to look for cards to cheer me up, but they have been almost none. So depressing!

    I love getting family newsletters but have never sent out any. This year we haven’t had any moves (for the first time in our marriage!), no new jobs, we only have one child who isn’t yet doing activities, and we’ve had a really sorrow-filled year (I’m currently going through my fourth miscarriages in 14 months) and I can’t think of anything to write that people would want to read. I’m praying for a Christmas when we have good news to share with friends.

      Mandi, your heart must be so heavy this year. I’d be honored to pray for you at 3am.
