The Beginning...and Possibly the End.
We got our first card (bravo J-man)!! Always exciting to get mail that isn't a bill. I must say though that cards are getting more expensive every year. Was there a crop failure? Are we now importing ink from Saudi Arabia? I found a cool set of cards (and by set I mean six in total because apparently the Swiss don't have many friends) that were CHF 25 ($ 34 CAD). Another "set" and I could fly to Barcelona instead.
Trees are great for decorating parties and cards are great for surrounding yourself with distance friends and relatives. We haven't sent our cards out yet but we've bought them. Now all we have to do are presents.
