It's been years since I sent out a holiday card. We used to have such fun creating newsletters with pictures, crosswords, jokes, and articles. One year Abe wrote a funny piece about Ruby's toddler-isms and Oscar dictated all the facts he knew about giraffes. I hope someday we'll rediscover our creativity, but until then I'm considering it a victory that I slapped this together today (with the help of Shutterfly of course).
I am hopeful about 2012 -- I am promising myself yoga, long walks up the staircases that slice through the blocks in our neighborhood, read-alouds, card games and bike rides with the kids, time for writing and creative pursuits, and (please, oh, please) a whole lot less anxiety.
Happy Happy New Year to all!
