I missed the boat for Christmas card this year. I wish I had ordered those beautiful letterpress holiday cards or had a family portrait taken. In France everything seems to take longer or just be a bit more complicated. And I would have had to send them out by December 1st. For Holiday mail you must count a minimum 3 weeks from Paris to the West Coast. Under those circumstances my daughter would have appeared about 2 months younger than she is now, which is a lot for an under 2 year-old. This year, I'll be sending out Paperless Post. At least a little imagination is going into the e-mail holiday greeting. You choose the fonts and graphics, even a picture if you like. Whenever something comes up last minute I always choose this option. I love that there is still an envelope to open and a card to take out. Very cool.
