Tonight begins the Christmas festivities. From here on out, we have something going on every day through the 27th…just a little crazy.
But, tonight I get the great pleasure of celebrating Christmas with my Mom and her girlfriends. She’s had the same group of friends since high school — or before — and I’m so lucky to have them as role models. I know it sounds corny, but I really make an effort with my friends because I see the rewards that long-time friendships have for my Mom and her friends and I WANT THAT.
Not to mention, I really like hanging out with Karen, Kathy and Terri.
The stipulation was that I wasn’t allowed to get them gifts (my Mom says so) because it would just start a whole thing where they feel compelled to now shop for ONE MORE PERSON each year. And I agreed — I really just want the friendship and the warm fuzzies from hanging out with these women I know who have been friends for so long.
So, instead, I got these pictures printed for each of them and put them in a Picasso Peace Dove Christmas card from Elle.
Thanks for including me in Christmas at Kathy’s ladies!
