Happy New Year!

Let’s be honest, this year’s Christmas card went out so late it was almost humorous. It was just a busy season, truth be told. And while we were vacationing in NYC, Christmas cards were the last things on my mind. I was too busy searching for the next restaurant we’d eat at or store where we’d window shop. I convinced myself that since they were belated it was like a special “post-Christmas-surprise” for everyone who thought snail mail wouldn’t be showing up for about 11 more months.

However, I did find a way to hopefully make up for my slacking in the Christmas card department. Instead, I created simple cards for both families this year to mail out on time… for the New Year. And seriously y’all, it’s a New Year’s miracle that we got a family photo on both sides! Check them out:

So with those printed and heading in the mail: Happy New Year from our families to yours! God has immeasurably more than we can imagine in store for 2014!

 

Saving the Date for the Future Andersons

I had two dear friends in high school. We each were involved in three totally different things, but ultimately had one common bond: Spanish class. We really only became great friends our senior year, but after so many Spanish projects complete with dessert breaks, friendships like that stick like glue.

In 2011, MR got married. In 2012, I got married. And in 2013, we’re marrying off the 3rd of our trio – Katie! We couldn’t be more excited! In fact, we even have thrown out the idea of all of us living in a triplex… maybe.

Lucky for me, I had the privilege of shooting engagement photos for Katie and her man, Scott in downtown Roswell, GA. It was a blast and a beautiful day. After editing, ooh-ing and ah-ing at how great this sweet couple looked, I had the chance to help Katie’s vision for a “Save the Date” come to life!

Yesterday, the postcard arrived in the mail and it was such fun! Not only is one of my best friends getting married, but I loved being able to see the final product come to life from photography to design to print. Now, I’m just ready for July to be here to celebrate my sweet friend!

But first, bridal shower and bachelorette planning ensues! Woo!
