One of my favorite traditions is sharing my family Christmas card with my readers. To me, the Christmas card is an important milestone in my year. I work hard to create a memorable one which will delight everyone who receives it.
Last year I sent out a Christmas card to many people who only knew me through my blog. It wasn’t my first tier Christmas card, which I sent to close friends and family (except Grandmama, who I was angry with at the time) and the Swedish royal family. For my readers I sent out the card which I use to stuff a couple of dollars in for my housekeeper and the guy at the dry cleaner. It still was beautiful though.
We are a gorgeous family!
Because I have spent this year in quiet, private contemplation, I will not be sending a card out to my online “family”. I still think everyone deserves a peek at what my loved ones will receive, though.
Merry Christmas everyone! I hope you all are lucky enough to have a year one tenth as wonderful as mine.
Last year I very generously posted my Christmas card photo and holiday letter on my blog, where I know it caused many of you to wish you were a part of my beautiful family and my great life. This year I have decided not to share it on the blog. It turns out that I have a few extra cards and some letters all printed up and I would like to send them to the people who follow my blog, so that you can display them in your home and create envy amongst your friends. Imagine that basic bitch you can’t stand wandering past your card display at your Christmas open house and literally gasping at your good fortune to know such a beautiful family. Or picture her picking up the letter, left casually on your desk, and thinking how classy you are to know such a classy and enviable woman as Lah Lee Smith. Wonder no more!
This card is not the beautiful, high quality card that I send to my close friends and family. It is the card I reserve for my in-laws and poor people for whom I feel pity. But it is still a gorgeous card because it features an absolutely beautiful family.
Until I run out of these lovely cards I will send them to anyone who sends me their address in the comments of my blog. I will not publish the addresses (obviously) and I will delete them immediately after addressing the cards. But you can pretend you are my close personal friend and display my gorgeous family on your mantle.
I can not guarantee that you will receive my card before Christmas, but you can certainly display it for many years to come.
Merry Christmas from Lah Lee, betches.
This was our photo last year. Aren’t we adorable?
Edited to add: Sadly, I have run out of my leftover cards. I am so sorry if you have been hankering for a missive from your pal, Lah Lee.
