I know. I’m crazy. It’s November and I’m already working on our Christmas cards. I love working on our Christmas cards each year. Picking out the cards, deciding which picture to include. The part I don’t like is the newsletter. I feel like it’s a brag letter. Hey, look what we’ve done this year and how great we are doing. And I feel like we write the same thing each year. So and so is growing up so quickly… You know the drill. Lesson #1: It is impossible to have a newsletter that doesn’t sound like a brag letter.
For the past six years that Nathan and I have been married, I have been the one to write our newsletter. This year, I made it a date night event so Nathan can help come up with things to write about. We decided to do a top ten list. We came up with events or things that happened this year and tried to bring humor to it. It’s nice to go back through and see the things we have accomplished this year. Lesson #2: The year is ending too quickly and I still have a few more things to finish before it’s over. AAHHH!
Nathan said: We had a good year. We visited with a lot of family and achieved a lot of long standing goals. Feels good and tiring at the same time. I’m just grateful to have Tiffany by my side.
