Holiday Cookies, Cards, and Traditions

I am horrible at sending out Christmas Cards. It’s atrocious, to be quite honest. I’m just no good at it.

I adore getting them – especially the ones with photos of the family, or even better, the newsletter updates letting me know how everyone has been doing.

Not everyone is on Facebook, you know. I can’t stalk everybody. My family is vast – I am one of 17 grandkids (just on my Mom’s side), and it’s impossible for the stasher in me to keep addresses organized. So, it never fails that December rolls around and I am scrounging around looking for addresses, calling Mom for ones that are missing.

And let’s not even talk about friends. Since becoming a blogger, I have umpteen gozillion friends I would like to send a card to. I feel like I know so many of you, just from your comments and twitter conversations, even if we may not have met. Yet! And then those of you I HAVE gotten to meet? Well, I love all of you. Seriously.

She may not know this, but one card I look especially forward to getting every year is from Jamie at Sticky Feet Part Deux. We’ve not met, but I hope that changes soon! Jamie and I started blogging around the same time, and I just love her, and watching her family grow. Back in 2008, when I was just a blogging baby, Jamie offered me some great advice, and I’ve never forgotten it. It was also that same year that I created the perfect holiday cookie, and now, I want to share it with you, just like Jamie shared with me.

Citrus & Lavender Holiday Cookies.
