Makes You Feel Merry

This is my pile of Christmas cards and pictures. Getting mail always makes me feel merry! Especially from dear friends that I don't see very often. It's so fun to hear what they've been up to and see how their children are growing. Sending out Christmas cards is time consuming and it can get pretty costly, yet it brings such joy when I open my mailbox and see envelopes addressed to me! So I try to remember that when I'm sick of folding paper and sticking on stamps and writing/typing addresses.

I also really, really love to get new pictures of my nieces and nephews! Of course I already have umpteen pictures, but one more is always welcome. :D I can't wait to see them all again, and Lord willing, in exactly one week from now I should be snug as a bug in a rug in my old bed at mom and dad's waiting for the moment I get my arms filled with little bodies. (I think I'll hug them extra tight this year on account of being thankful that I can still hug them when there are those who can't hug their children anymore.) What makes you feel merry?

December Photo A Day Challenge: Everyday people all around the world look at the list, and take a photo according to the date. So on the 1st of December we’ll take a photo at 8 o’clock {am or pm, doesn’t matter}. So whatever you’re doing when the clock strikes 8 – take a photo. And then share it. Then upload it to Facebook {your own page, or my Facebook page}, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, your blog, Tumblr – where ever you please. If you’re sharing to Instagram or Twitter – use the hashtag #FMSphotoaday.

 Toodle-loo kangaroos! I know I haven't reviewed anything in a while. But I plan to get a lot of reading done on the airplane, so when I'm back from my trip I'll probably bombard you with reviews! (I hope, anyway. :)


  1. That's awesome!!
    I love sending and receiving cards too! email me your addy sometime and I'll send you one too, from here :D

  2. I love mail too. I'm on vacay right now and secretly wish my mail could find me and be delivered here.

    What makes me merry? My sweet girl. It's her second Christmas but last Christmas she was only a few weeks old. I love that this Christmas she's more aware and here to enjoy the lights and presents.

    1. I know what you mean, I kind of wish I could get my fun mail sent to me on vacation too. (Not the bills though!) But then I remind myself that at least once I'm back home again, I'll have a great time with a huge pile to open! :D

      Aawww. Children do make Christmas so much more fun! They help remind me to enjoy the little things, like wrapping paper and bows and lights. :)


Thank you so much for visiting my little corner of the internet! :)
