Well I made it! 30 Posts in 30 Days and today is day 30! Woo Hoo! Some days I wondered if I'd bit off more than I could chew, but I'm pleased to say I did it! I decided not to write about today's WEGO assignment, but instead to write about Christmas cards.
Ok, did I mention that I LOVE getting Christmas cards!!!! We usually hang them around the entryway into our kitchen. It makes my heart smile to think about all the special people in my life.
With the popularity of social media, the post office is slowly becoming a thing of the past. It is very rare to receive a "real" letter anymore. The one time of year people tend to venture into the postal world is at Christmas. I love the photo cards people send out today (Thank you Joe and Brandi for sending my my first card this year!). I also love the personal updates from friends and family. While I'm thankful for the store bought cards, I must say the ones with a personal note or photo are much more meaningful. I mean if you are going to spend 44 cents to mail a card, at least send a picture or write a personal message.
I haven't done a card yet this year -- guess I need to get diligent to do so. While I LOVE cards, I'm also tempted to create a digital card to send out just because it would be so much cheaper. I had a professor whose family created a digital video card set to music that was incredible. I wish I was more tech savvy to do that. I tried last year but I couldn't get the music to work so I never sent it out.
Hmmmmm, what to do, what to do? I guess the important thing is letting the people you care about know just how much you care. Its the thought and not the means that counts!
