In honor of the occasion I thought I'd share a photo from the archives, in which I am wearing a holiday vest, for which I think I should get more points than just an ordinary reindeer sweater. (Though I probably owned one of those too.)
And this is me now. The baby from the first picture grew up to be my beautiful girl, as you can see, and her brother's bighearted and strong. That's enough blessings for anyone, and I wish you your own generous helping of Christmas magic and peace in the new year.
