I've been meaning to tell you, I'm really glad you take cards *year round.* I am absolutely useless at meeting due dates on things, always have been. (I was the world's worst aunt that way. Lucky for me, the nephew and niece never forgot I love them to the nth degree, and always told me it was okay!)

So when I'm out and about again I can get cards and send them to you, to have ready for the next important date. I really like being able to do it that way.
