Seriously. I love writing them. I love getting them. In fact, I'm not sure anyone in my office has sent any yet besides me. So if you'd like me to send you one, let me know. My Sharpie is standing by.

Holiday cards have lost their elegance and probably their meaning altogether, but I still love them. A good holiday card takes work. Why bother sending a card you just sign? Put some muscle into it and catch your friend up on your life a little. Pictures of the kids are always nice, or better yet: a picture of the coolest thing you did all year. -Michelle
