When Garrett and I were first married, we were typical poor college students. I had just graduated from college, and Garrett was just starting his second year of undergrad, planning on attending Law school after getting his four year degree. Garrett had saved for months and months to afford a wedding ring, and when he finally was able to purchase one he only had $0.53 remaining in his bank account. He didn’t tell me this until months later, and I couldn’t believe all of the hard work, love, and sacrifice that went into being able to afford my ring (I honestly couldn’t make this stuff up).

We welcomed Bradley into our family only a few years after getting married, and I quit my job to stay home with him. We lived on a really tight student budget, and I remember lots of birthdays and anniversaries where we decided to just give a card and forego an extravagant gift.  Even when we only exchanged cards, Garrett made a point to always buy me a PAPYRUS card. Getting a PAPYRUS card to us meant that it was an occasion special enough to splurge a bit on a beautifully crafted card (even if that was the only item that was given). Each year he picks out a card that fits me/my style perfectly. My wedding ring was important enough to him to spend literally almost every penny he had, and since then, the special cards have shown me how important special milestones and events in our lives are to him. We recently celebrated his birthday, and I was able to find the perfect PAPYRUS card for him!

I love our 10 year long PAPYRUS card tradition. PAPYRUS has helped make our special occasions more meaningful. Not only are their cards a step above, but they also just launched a holiday entertaining line that will elevate any holiday party or gathering! The same intricate details used in their cards are also in their holiday pom pom banners, party picksnapkins, and dessert plates.  If you are planning a holiday party, or have a special event during the holidays, this new line is definitely worth checking out!
