Today’s post comes from Barbara in Robbinsdale
There was a fun article in the Dec. 27 Mpls. Star Tribune about the eventual demise of the annual Christmas/Holiday Letter, since so many people are getting a play-by-play look at each other’s lives on Facebook. “Status updates may have removed all the surprise about what the children are up to, but they have all of the shelf life of a brown banana.” The writer, Paul John Scott, appreciated one of those letters he still receives, from a person who “has managed to boil his family intel down to four lines of text…”
I sent out the cheery Christmas letter that included all the fun stuff (and for each item below, I’ve left out the sad or stressful parts) from 2015:
- trip to France, and later to California
- singing and dance events
- Husband’s finding a Mathnasium gig to fill the extra hours in his week
- Nephew & Family’s visit after Christmas (they’ve taken a side trip out of town for a couple of days, which is the only reason I’m writing this)
If I had to condense it to one sentence, I think it would be: 2015 was the year we first traveled to France. (Alternately: 2015 was when we finally got the ping pong table out of the living room.)
If you were to sum up 2015 with a sentence about the most important thing that happened in your life, what would it say?
Or if you’d like to muse on the year that’s just arrived:
What would you like to write next December as a one sentence wrap of 2016?
