As you have probably guessed, the little girl is me. I love my mother's Christmas party and always knew that I would have one in my first apartment. It was really wonderful and definitely will happen every year.
In addition to the Christmas party, I did send out over 100 Christmas cards. I'm not joking. Between my friends from the summer retreat, my Camp Courage friends, family, people like family, and neighbors, it totaled roughly 120. It was a huge undertaking but I loved it! Of course, decorating my apartment was also fun.
Now that Christmas is over, I am bummed and a bit crabby (sorry, Mom and Dad). I just HATE when the merriment is over. I am going to Minnesota tomorrow so I can't be that bummed out. I get to see my godson, cousins, Nana, my aunt and uncle, and actually some friends from Camp so I feel incredibly blessed.
I hope you had a wonderful Chanukah, Christmas, or Kwanzaa. I have learned this Christmas that I may be a woman but I will always have a little girl's love of Christmas.
I wish you nothing but joy in the New Year!
Love and Merriment,
