Merry Christmas.

Hello to all you Christmas celebrating SWR readers out there! I am excited to spend the day with Kai and my family while enjoying this significant holiday. Tomorrow we will be opening gifts, eating a delicious brunch prepared by my mom, and just spending time together. I look forward to this day all year!

I thought today would be the perfect day to share our first family Christmas card, which we ordered through Minted! You may have seen my previous post where I shared some designs we were considering. After taking the pictures for our card, we ultimately decided on the second layout option.


As much as I wish we could, we can’t honestly take credit for the concept. Kai found this hilarious website and I knew we needed to do our version of the clothes swapping idea. Taking these photos was so hilarious, and a little confusing. We came up with the mirrored concept right before we shot the photos, and getting it just right was mind bending.

Here is a closer look at the original photo:


and the final version:


So there is it – Merry Christmas from the Heeringa Family! Kai, Kayley, Shanty, and Epworth.
