WOW, that didn't seem like it took any time at all to reach another 1/2 million cards. Onward towards the 2 million mark, ladies! Any predictions on when that might be? My guess is definitely BEFORE the end of 2012, but I'm just not sure how far before the end of the year - maybe around Sept/Oct when the Christmas card deadline rolls around. What do you think?!
