christmas present for my mailman.

I like to do something fun for my mailman every holiday season just to say thanks for all that he does all year long!
This morning I left him a nice card with a starbucks gift card and homemade mailbox cookies! I hope he enjoys his special holiday treat!

His present waiting to be picked up from the mailbox!

If you are looking for a card specifically for your mailman this holiday season, Hallmark has a great selection of different ones.

sent with love. christmas cards.

I was very excited to get my christmas cards done this year as we had maternity photos taken and wanted to include them on my Christmas card this year! Plus, with only have 3.5 weeks left of this pregnancy I needed to make sure to get them done and out in the mail early this year!

All my pen pals should be getting Christmas cards in the mail soon! I went with an ugly sweater theme for theirs this year. 

I hope my card was the first one everyone received for the season this year!
