I don’t cry when I take the tree down, but I hate losing our happy wall of friends’ and family cards.

I’ve seen a couple of fun ideas floating around the internet of what to do with these cards once they come off the wall. I’m still trying to figure out what I’ll end up doing with them, but for right now they’re still on the fridge. They are always my last Christmas decoration to come down.

I like when friends come over and they ask about some of the cards. I get to do a little rundown of what makes that family so special, how we know them and why they’re on our fridge. And sometimes there’s a connection we didn’t even know existed.

I’m forever grateful for the many families that have crossed our paths and made it such a delightful road to travel.
