For about 2 years now, B and I have written a New Years letter that we send out to friends and family that we have an e-mail address to (which, since Facebook became the way to communicate, isn’t as many as I wish it was). While many have chosen to to use the New Years letter to reflect of the past year however, B and I chose to focus a little more on the coming year, as a way of looking forward, rather than looking back. After moving to this apartment however, I’ve noticed a major strength in writing the New Years letter the way we do; it makes our hopes for the coming year more tangible, more definite. Without meaning to, I’ve noticed how we for the last years have been checking things off of our New Years letter as the year goes by. Pretty cool how that works.
