Last year, we decided not to send Christmas cards. I wanted to save money, I was concerned about the trees (oh the trees!!), and it seemed just another thing to stress out about during an already busy holiday season.
Not sending cards made me sad.
This year, we have twice as many things to do, as evidenced by my lack of blogs (another thing that makes me sad) but I was not going to miss my cards again. So we took some pictures, found a good deal, and cards that were printed on recycled paper, thank you very much. The kids and I visited the post office for some Christmas stamps, hit the Dollar Tree for some fun stickers to decorate them, and spent an afternoon addressing, licking, sticking and sealing.
And now it feels like Christmas.
