This year I’ve been making a conscious effort to slow down and minimize the holiday hustle. I want to enjoy a simpler holiday season and focus on what really matters most to our family. I’ve been carefully weighing some of our favorite traditions trying to decide which ones to keep and which ones we can let go for the sake of simplicity.
Heartfelt Holiday Cards Mean So Much
We typically mail out Christmas cards and I thought of saying no to sending them this year in order to eliminate one thing from my to-do list.
The more I thought about it the more I realized how much I love sending and receiving traditional Christmas cards. There’s just something special about opening the mail and finding a warm greeting from family and friends.
In this day of instant messages and overflowing inboxes, a handwritten card can mean so much. Connecting with loved ones is so much more meaningful when done the old fashioned way – and so I decided that sending holiday cards was a tradition worth holding onto.
Remember to Keep it Simple
When it comes to holiday cards, there are so many choices available and that can become overwhelming. Elaborate, flashy or expensive cards aren’t necessary to send our love.
If you want to send holiday cards this year, but the thought is overwhelming to you, my advice is to keep it simple. Pick one photo, pick one simple (yet beautiful) design and be done.
To the recipient it’s the greeting and seeing your shining faces that means the most after all. It’s not about beautiful typography or how sparkly your card is – it’s about connecting with family and friends and letting them know you’re thinking of them this holiday season.
