In my facebook live video today, I talked about the dilemma of being separated and sending photo Christmas cards, and how I dealt with it over the past couple of years. I also talked about my ambivalence about sending a card with just myself and the kids in the photo. And I also shared some strategies for choosing the best card, and getting some of them for free.

Here is the final card I went with, from Minted, who has my lasting devotion for the fact that they include FREE address printing right on the envelope. Game changer.
