Who: The Hot Mess Munsons - Josh, Cindy, Caroline, Annaliese and Millicent
Location: Lick Creek Park; College Station, TX
Clothes: Gap, Inc. should totally pay us. The only items not from Banana, Gap or Old Navy are my scarf and our shoes. Oh, and Annaliese's necklace - it came from Charming Charlie's and the hair flair - Caroline's hair pin is from MMK's stash of fun hair supplies and Millicent's headband is from Icing.
Designer: Nichole Quick of Quick Design Company
Photographer: Again, you may have heard of her... Sarah Burns of Butterfly Chaser Photography.
Favorite Thing: You may recall our card from last year; we LOVED it…but it was a lot. This year I knew I wanted only one image on the front and when Sarah emailed me the pics I knew this was the winner. I am a sucker for good back lighting! And like almost every other person in America, I am in love with the large loopy glittery (or foil pressed) message scrolled delightfully across an image and when a Merry Momma sees something she likes, she runs with it. We chose to use the phrase "Good Tidings" (which is a little different than the normal Merry Christmas we use) because really the message of Christmas for us is about the good news…the news that Jesus Christ was born, died for our sins and then rose again. And, because we MM are all about the honesty, I LOVE our outfits. Many, many, many a text were sent to MM Katy and Sarah about these clothes. I think Jesus likes them too. And Jesus likes tattoos…if you look closely you can see the girls' tats on their arms/hands. (Don't worry, they're fake!)
Extras: Every year Josh writes our year-in-review… I love that he does this and I love that he made people gasp a little this year (and I have received quite a few texts about this poem's ending! ha!)
Parks and woods are great for the outdoorsy look -
Both pictures are from Heather Armstrong Photography
And Minted and Tiny Prints have great single pic cards with delightful sayings options:
Good Tidings y'all!
I hope 2015 is full of good news for you and your family!
