December 27 Day 659: Holiday Cards

I always try to get our holiday card designed and printed before Christmas. If I am very good, I manage to get them in the mail before December 25. This year the printing was finished on Christmas Eve, many cards were addressed on Boxing Day, and the first batch were delivered to the post office this morning. I’m feeling expecially festive because a wintery storm graced us with a beautiful blanket of snow. The main roads are clear enough to travel but the side roads remain treacherous.

Even the stoplights collected snow yesterday.

For those expecting cards in the mail, read no further.

The cover was inspired by Mark and my newly empty nest and the fact that my Mom always refers to the ones she loves as chickadees.

Images spiralling from the top left towards the right: The Martin boys at Thanksgiving–Zach, Mark, Anson, and Uncle Jack; Grandma Betsy hosted Anson this summer; Zach’s senior photo; At Zach’s graduation; Mark & Jenny celebrate 23 years together (with Robyn photobomb); Sunrise on the Sound; Lady Azula of the Fire Skink Nation; Baby Carl; and Jenny at her only in-person math conference of 2021.

Wishing you all a happy and healthy new year!
