I just got the email telling me all about my Ornament Exchange partner! Would you believe she lives in Michigan? Of all the places she could be from, it's a state in which I've spent a fair amount of time (even if it was a long, long time ago). Wow, small world! Memories of the frat house in Flint, the cold winter of Detroit, and the crazy festive Frankenmuth come flooding back... I was 22 years old last time I was there. 22! Was there such a time?
Anyway, I digress! I am very excited about the ornament swap. I am off downtown this weekend to find a lovely little tree decoration to send off to my partner (an ornament shopping trip! just like Betsy, Tacy and Tib!) I'm reading her blog to see if I can get to know her (and her Christmas tree style) a bit better before my shopping trip and pretty parcel prep. Now I seriously have to get to those Christmas cards. Why endure the line up at the post office more than once if I don't have to, right?
And, oooh, I wonder who got me?
