Writing a Yearly Letter to a Dear Godmother

cafe 790773
Today was a good day to catch up with someone special. I have a tradition that every year my godmother Caro sends me a Christmas check. And in return I write her a very long, old fashioned snail mail letter, telling her everything I’ve done over the past year. It’s an instructive exercise, and this year I included many photos, including this one, showing a cozy cafe in Sweden where Cindy and I went last month.

Looking back at trips to Cyprus, Sonoma, Malaysia, Austria, Greenland and Sweden was fun, and each one gave me something to remember. Plain old personal letters are way too rare these days, so I was happy to post one to my beloved Aunt Caro today.
