Merry Christmas!


…with love from the new Mr. and Mrs. Kirk :)

lisa and dave christmas cards 2015 1I’m so excited to reveal the Christmas cards we chose today! As much as I loved all of the “Newly Married” designs Minted has to offer (see my favorites that we considered here!), we ultimately decided to keep our first Christmas cards simple and reflective of how we feel about this year: that we owe God all the glory for the blessings he has poured out on our new marriage. We try to rejoice in His love, grace, and mercy daily, and especially this time of year, this design seemed so fitting!
lisa and dave christmas cards 2015-2lisa and dave christmas cards 2015-3Thank you SO much to the wonderful Ryan Ray for this beautiful wedding photo (taken right after our first look!) and to Minted for our first married Christmas cards. Sending them to our loved ones across the country and around the world has been such a joy, and I’m already excited to do it again next year :)

Wishing y’all a blessed and beautiful Christmas!
