Sometimes we have traditions we feel like we “should” do but that don’t really get us excited–for me, that includes sending out Christmas cards. Now, don’t get me wrong: I love getting Christmas card updates from family and friends, and I think it’s a great way to force yourself to remain in touch with people (especially those you don’t see often) and update them on your life.
But, for some reason, it causes me inordinate amounts of stress that are disproportionate to the actual difficulty of the task.
So, using the ever-present excuse that I’m still a semi-new mom of a very active almost-8-month old and am teaching full time, I’m letting myself off the hook for traditional family Christmas cards this year.
Hope no one will cry themselves to sleep tonight over it.
But, because we had my sister snap a couple pics of us (finally, some family pictures taken by a real person and not a self-timer!), I decided to pretend like this is our family Christmas card.
