I think some year we should all skip the professional photos, color-coordinated holiday outfits and kids with combed hair and we should put photos of our real lives on our holiday cards. Last year, my card looked like this:
This year, we actually gave in and had professional photos taken. Since I’m usually the photographer (and a mediocre one at best) I was thrilled to have some photos I’m actually IN. We ended up with some good shots. But my very favorite photo? No one is looking at the camera, my belly is hanging over my jeans, and my husband is being attacked by our cute 2-year-old. But it kind of sums things up. That’s my life. Things don’t go quite according to plan and stuff is a little chaotic, but we’re in it together, we help each other out, and can laugh about all of it.
So without further ado, I reveal The Real Tartlet Christmas Card 2014:
“Christmas Day is in our grasp
So long as we have hands to clasp.
Christmas Day will always be
Just as long as we have we.”
