So I sat down the other day to write up our annual holiday letter which we typically send with our holiday card – but after writing down everything that happened to us this year, I realized that there really wasn’t anything of significance that happened this year – even less so than last year. Fully half of the letter I wrote was just explaining the loss of Delilah and how we got Matilda, which just didn’t feel like the sort of thing you want to be reading about in a holiday letter.
Other than that, we really had very little happen to us this year (which is both good and bad), and we did very little of note – just a few small, local, long weekend trips, and our one week vacation.
So after a bit of thought, we decided we’re just going to skip the holiday letter this year. Hopefully by next year we’ll have something to report, but for this year – well, we’ve all got enough to remember about this year; we don’t need any more.
