Christmas Greetings

A couple of days ago, I received my very first Christmas card of the season. It wasn’t from my family or friends. It wasn’t from my kids.

 

It was from Dana of Sunshine’s Blog.

Dana and I met when she entered my very first photo contest a while back. And if you’ve visited her blog and have seen the amazing photos she takes, you’ll understand why she won first place. She is a wonderful photographer, a loving Mother to Brandon, and a great blogging friend. She has always been there for me whether it was to support my latest crazy blogging idea, extend a cheerful greeting, or help me shop for a new digital camera.

She’s definitely someone anyone would love to meet in person. However, the next best thing is to go over and visit her. Trust me, she’s like a ray of sunshine on a cloudy day.

Mahalo Dana!

Have you received your first card?

    That’s a beautiful card. I received my first card last week from my aunt who lives in the States.

    Oddly enough, I have yet to receive our first Christmas card. I haven’t gotten ours yet, so it’s a good thing I haven’t received one yet, either. It always makes me feel pressured!

    Kailani!!! You are so sweet. Ya know, I haven’t been visiting many blogs lately..just haven’t had the time (as I talk about in my latest post) but earlier today I looked at my site meter and it was way up! I thought to myself “something is up…someone somewhere must be linking to me” – ha! And I was right!!! We just got home from Six Flags (taking Brandon there for his early birthday treat) and it is late..but I had several comments from people visiting from your blog (thanks for the reference!!). Anyway, I KNEW IT.

    By the way, one of the reasons I haven’t had time to blog much lately is due to the fact I have had 3 different sets of people HIRE ME to take their family Christmas photos!!! How cool is that? For two of the families, I took about 125 pics and for one of them, I took over 400!!! (those were actually about 10 different families combined). Anyway, editing all those photos as well as the time to actually take them has sucked all my extra time.

    OK, sorry to take over your comments page!!!

    I just wanted to say thank you so much for your sweet post and the link! Also, I am so glad we are blogging friends. Just for the record, you are one of the nicest people I know!

    Mahalo to you too :)

    I received my 1st card on Friday from one of my favorite college professors who I still keep in touch with. I’ve usually sent mine out by now, but I’m just now putting the finishing touches on everything! I addressed yours this evening & it will go out in tomorrow’s mail! Can’t wait to receive yours!! Merry Christmas!
