Man is it hard to blog regularly. At least it is for me. It's difficult to take pictures on a daily basis as well... which was a goal I set for myself for 2012.
And here I am... blogging for the first time in 2012 just 2 days before Valentines Day.
It's ironic. I celebrate Christmas from Nov 1st through Mid January. I adore Christmas. I love the season which highlights Jesus, Family, Love, Togetherness, and Giving. I fail miserably at each and every attempt I've ever made to send Christmas cards. In fact - last year, I even managed to address and stamp each card and then never mailed them.
As for Valentines Day - it's entirely a commercial holiday in my book. I wouldn't be offended in the least if Brandt didn't recognize it in any way, shape, or form. But boy oh boy am I loving having three small children in preschool during the Valentine "Holiday" this year. I've taken pictures, edited, re-edited, and edited some more. I made collages for the grandparents & other relatives - and made personalized Valentine Day cards for each of the kids to hand out to their pre-school classes. I've decorated these cards with hand-tied ribbons & added color-coordinated suckers.
But the one Holiday I love? Meh... Card-wise, I can't get it done.
Irony. At it's finest.
Either that or I just had less laundry to do today.
