In 2007, after Kevin proposed on the steps of the New York Public Library, we sent cards with the Library on the card.
#1- 2007, New York Public Library
In 2008, the year we moved to New York, we sent Rockefeller Center cards. I worked pretty close to the plaza so it made sense. We also included save-the-date magnets for our wedding inside the card. It's been really fun seeing the magnets still on friends' refrigerators. Some of them are still up!
#2- 2008, Rockefeller Center
In 2009, we cheated and sent Christmas cards/ Thank you notes from the wedding.

Well, 2010 was a hard year for me because I lost my dad in November, so I made this from James's sonogram and just emailed it out.
#4- 2010, James's 12-week sonogram.
By contrast, 2011 was the happiest Christmas yet because we had a new little Santa in our home.
#5- 2011, James's first Christmas!
In 2012, I couldn't find a card I liked that fit all the pictures I wanted. Plus I was scandalized by the price of Christmas cards so I made my own for the first time. This presented a problem when trying to find envelopes for them. Trying to make my own card again this year... wonder if it would be easier to just go back to the pre-made ones.
