And if you don't celebrate Christmas, then Happy Day-Off-of-Work-for-Somebody-Else's-Holiday! Really, it's a win-win for everyone. I don't have a lot to say today, but I wanted to mention my final (and kind of lame) self actualization project. We made Christmas cards. It was kind of last minute, and we ended up using a stock design from Walmart (which hurts my inner graphic designer), but despite all the issues (and lack of pictures of the finished product - sorry, I was too quick to seal everything up), we've managed to send them out and present ourselves to the world as a family for the first time.
Ryan and I have been together for 3 1/2 years and we've had Luke for 2 of them. We've been a family, and considered ourselves that, for a while now but sending out cards felt almost as official to me as the ring on my finger. So I'm happy, because we've done it, because it's a first for me, and because it will ensure that we receive more cards next year (who doesn't love getting cards?!). So here's a screenshot from the Walmart website.
I hope everyone else's Christmas is as wonderful as mine will be (fingers crossed - we're flying cross country today, and we all knowMurphy's law runs rampant with the airline companies).
