I grew up here and that is still the traditional greeting this time of year. Fill in with Hanukkah, meh, etc. as you see fit.
As usual, I win a company Holiday lunch table ornament. Instead of PTO or gift cards sigh....
Of course it suffered some damage on the ride home!
I have many gifts, I wanted to point out that although some say Blogging is dead I without this medium would not have met so many special people in real life. Some dude with dogs in WV, a barrister in MI? An ER doc in OH (I think) a walking encyclopedia on everything that goes bang in IN, another special talented blogger and author there as well? Some old guy that likes to travel in VA =) ? And so many more. If I did not call ya out don't take offense. And that is the point of this gift. There are SO many of you. Thank you for reaching out as well. I want to continue that and look forward to meeting many more of you face to face in the coming year. You have been warned =) I live in a small town and I do have friends here but it has been great to meet so many others!
I wanted to get this post out tonight before it gets crazy for everyone. I suggest in the middle of the madness that you mentally step back and enjoy. These times are fleeting and even with the madness involved should be savored.
I hope all of you look at the magic of this season with the eyes of a child and it is special for you.
So now. What gift for a special lady? Covered!
