I wonder when I’ll start holiday cards. I remember every year, my parents scrambling to get the holiday letter and photo (oh, and deciding which photo) done to send out in time. My dad sitting at the computer printing out dozens of letterheads and envelopes. Reading the letter my dad wrote in his reporter-esque style, giving an overview of our various accomplishments of the year. It seemed so stressful and rushed, all to fill in people you haven’t talked to in years. A nice idea, of course. I did always like seeing how family friends had changed, grown up. But is it as necessary anymore when now we keep up on Facebook, email, etc? I want to think it is, because it’s always nice to get personal mail and think of people you love from your past. I think when I finally get organized and on top of such things (which I tend to be very bad at, as the # 1 procrastinator/keep-in-toucher ever) I will finally feel like a real adult.
(These cute cards sure do make it seem more appealing though…)
