Here’s the card I actually managed to print and send out to a few people this year. (Note to self: next year, I definitely need to print out more copies.)
This was the first year in history that I actually followed through with my goal to do the “Christmas card thing,” and I have to say, it was a lot more fun than I thought it would be. Not only did it give me a chance to reflect on what a great year we’ve had, it gave me the opportunity to give a little heads-up to some of our family and friends as to how we’ve been doing.
As I get older, it gets way too easy to lose touch with people who I really don’t want to lose touch with. So even though it was something small (and I didn’t print out enough copies to send to everyone I wanted to), I’m glad I did get this out this year. I can’t guarantee it will be an annual tradition, but at least I can say I did it once!
Merry Christmas to all of you readers—I want to warmly thank you for your friendship, comments, and support in this little virtual space of the online world. It is YOU that keeps me coming back to the blank page, day after day, and I can’t wait to continue to get to know you more over the new year!
