Just as I am downsizing my job, so am I in the mood to downsize Christmas. I just feel like it is time to reduce stress, and taking Christmas expectations down a notch feels like it would help.
But A really wanted a tree.
If you remember from past years, you know we go a bit overboard on the tree. What are cathedral ceilings for, if not to allow for huge 12 and 14 foot trees?
This year, we won’t need a step-ladder to decorate – even I can reach the top of our “little “tree! It is just about 6 feet tall, and it is A’s project this year. She will decorate while I am at work this week. She is on vacation, but I am not, once again! (only 6 more work days for those of you keeping count.)
I can’t wait to see what she does with it!
Just so you know I am still me, I spent all weekend on the Christmas cards – first batch of 35 will go out today, many more tomorrow. Here’s another teaser for you – I always put a little hallmark on the back of my cards – sorry for the blurry photo – the angel is silver ink, and doesn’t show well with a flash, and it’s too dark to see it well without. 🙂 I add a “sarah” or “sal” in the middle, depending on how I am known by the recipient. 🙂
Have a good day!
