Happy New Year! I’m in Lisbon, Portugal with my family, celebrating being together:
Quick note on letters and packages: I’ve had some things get lost recently so please don’t send anything valuable or irreplaceable. Mom and Ann Marie also had the good idea to send things in two smaller padded envelopes in case one gets lost.
Also, if I haven’t thanked you for a letter or package via email, facebook or return letter, most likely I haven’t received it (on that note, thanks Terry, Ann Marie, and Kate for sending love and goodies for my parents to bring to me).
Lastly, I appreciate packages very much (see my “wish list” for fun things to include), but mostly I just like to hear about your lives and it makes me feel good to know that you’re thinking of me, so consider sending a recent photo or writing a quick note even if it doesn’t say much more than what you did this week.
Happy New Year!
Much love always,
