Happy Holidays From the Tryforos Family

Happy holidays, my friends! Continuing our tradition from last year, I chose to design an ecard instead of mailing out paper cards. This gave us the flexibility to put off taking our family photo until this past weekend! With lowered expectations (stone-faced baby = no big deal) and LOTS of digital editing (no way could we ever get all three pets into one actual picture), the process was actually pretty painless. And although graphic designer I am not I really enjoy playing around with fonts and such to make a pretty card.

Tryforos Family Christmas 2013

I am all about simplifying the holiday season in whatever way I can (click here to read a post I wrote about exactly that for Red Stick Moms Blog recently), and for us this is a great solution. Plus, as my friend Lauren pointed out, it’s easier for friends and family to hold onto a digital card year after year than a paper one. I’d be lying, though, if I said I didn’t thoroughly enjoy all the cards and Christmas letters that we receive in the mail. This year I hung them all up on the wall in our dining room using some twine and clothespins.

I’ll be taking off the rest of this week to relax and spend time with family. I hope that each of you has an absolutely wonderful Christmas, Kwanza, Solstice, etc. and a very happy new year. Let’s keep in touch!
