My family is different from most in today’s society (in a good way). You see we actually like each other, enjoy getting together and look forward to time catching up and sharing what’s happening in our lives.
Ten years ago, our family started a Christmas “tradition” where the adults and kids were supposed to make something for someone, give something to a charity in their name, or regift something you liked from the other family (like an heirloom or something that had deep meaning to someone).
My amazing sister-in-law, Kathi Browne, had my name this year, yet there wasn’t a gift for me under the tree. I was curious because the tree was inordinately full even though each year we say we’re going to “cut back.” When my turn came to open my gift, Kathi opened her laptop and showed me my Twitter handle as a URL . You see, my sis-in-law gave me a blog !! How cool is that?
I’ve had people mention that I should do this someday, and many of you have been kind enough to let me be a guest on your great blogs. I appreciate you letting me get my feet wet.
Now, I guess I’ll be out here with you. I’m just getting started and I’m sure that I’ll be reaching out to others to have them guest here as well.
It’s a great way to start 2011 !! Let’s see what happens . . .
