Every year my wonderful husband writes our family Christmas Letter and I absolutely LOVE to read it!! For me it’s an experience of seeing our year, me, J-man, his life, our puppy, our weaknesses, and our accomplishments through his eyes. It’s awesome! I love that he enjoys writing it and is really thorough about it. As I read it, I find myself reliving moments, realizing that I forgot about such and such, thinking Wow that’s how he sees that accomplishment, laughing, tearing up, and then I always end thinking, WOW, I married an awesome man! Sometimes I forget how sweet and loving he is under his shell and today when I read our Christmas Letter that he wrote, I fell in love all over again!
Writing a Christmas Letter is a tradition from his side of the family that I am happy we are carrying on. I grew up close to my cousins and most of our family friends were nearby, so a Christmas letter wasn’t necessary, but I do always remember reading other’s Christmas letters and thinking it was so cool to put your families’ year on paper for your loved ones to read about. I am definitely happy that we are carrying this tradition on and that my husband is the designated letter writer. He’s so much better at it than I am.
Also, the letter adds a personal touch. I always design a picture card and hand sign the back with a little note, but the letter really brings the picture full circle. I love our teamwork for our Christmas cards! Thanks Babe! You’re the best! Love you!
