8 days: Staying in touch

We had decided not to send Christmas cards this year; we thought that cutting out this tradition would be a great way to save both money and time. Bah humbug.

It didn't take much to change our minds. As December marched on and we received a loving bounty of cards we started to realize how much the tradition really meant to us. Calvin loves going to the mailbox and opening the cards we receive and we love reading the messages and catching up with people. We feel very loved when we receive greetings from our friends and family, and we want to send them the same joy in an envelope as well. And then there's the decorating aspect—for as long as I can remember my mom has decorated her kitchen walls with the cards received in the mail that year, a tradition that I have continued now with my own family.

So our cards are late this year, but they're on their way.
