A little over a month ago I mentioned that I will reveal our holiday card in this post. Ta-Dah, here it is! I love how it turned out. Minted never disappoints when it comes to their stationary. I was even more impressed with their customer service. Life has been extremely busy that I forgot to order our card. So late last week, I placed our order and of course my promo code didn't work. I panicked a little because I had to get it rush delivery so that our family and friends can get it by Christmas. I wasn't sure if emailing would get this resolved right away so I decided to use their live chat feature. I mentioned my concern and the promo code issue and immediately the Minted representative resolved it. He was able to make my promo code work and get it rush delivered. Phew!

I pretty much utilized all the features Minted has to offer to make my card selection smooth. If the Find It Fast option didn't exist, it would have made it so much harder to envision which card is the best. Oh, and the Address Assistant is such a time and life saver. Learn more about their feature in last month's post. All I had to do when I received my cards was seal, stamp, and drop it off at the post office.

If you procrastinated like I did and need to order more cards or order a gift, you have until today (Monday, 12/19) 3pm PST and choose rush delivery to get it by December 24. You can also get your order of extra cards 25% off by using the promo code MORECARDS.

Also, I know this is the first time on the blog that you will see how I look without my wig. The funny thing is since we took these photos a month ago my hair is a little bit longer than that. I actually can wear a headband now. YES!! Tre and I are so blessed that our wedding photographer, Blossom Lane Photography, took these photos of us. We just love her! The first time we met her, we knew we would love her and her work. So when we were thinking about who would take these photos, it was a no brainer.

P.S. can you believe Christmas Eve is this Saturday?!?! Holy moly!!
