For two years in a row back in 2010 and 2011, I thought it would be fun at Christmas to include my closest family and friends and have them make lists of their favorite things and I would publish them here on the blog.
Looking back, I realize that it was a way to include them in my blogging process but also, let’s be honest: it was an easy way to get out of writing a post.
I would get out of an entire week of writing back then.
Back when I would actually write three times a week.
How did someone who had small children write THREE TIMES A WEEK?
As I mentioned last week, I was going through my old blog posts and that simple act motivated me to bring the holiday posts back.
Because I love my family and friends as well as my blog and I love to bring the three together.
But I decided to change up my Favorite Things lists this time around.
I had specific questions I was going to ask my loved ones so there wasn’t a lot of pressure on them to have to think too much outside the box.
Listen, this time of the year is hard enough and I didn’t want them to have to think of one more thing for their loved one’s blog so she didn’t have to write a few posts for weeks at a time.
THAT ISN’T WHY I DID THIS, I SWEAR.
Here are the questions that I sent to all of my dear ones:
I am so very thankful for all of you.
