I have a list of folks I know all written in a book,
And every year at Christmas time I go and take a look.
And that is when I realize that these names are of a part,
Not of the book in which they’re written, but of my very heart.
Each name denotes someone who has crossed my path sometime,
And in that meeting they’ve become the rhythm of the rhyme.
And while it sounds fantastic of me to make this claim,
I really feel that I’m composed of each remembered name.
And while you may not be aware of any special link,
Just meeting you has shaped my life more than you can think.
For once you’ve met somebody, those years they can’t erase,
The memories of a pleasant word or of a friendly face.
So never think that my Christmas greeting is just a mere routine,
Of names upon a Christmas list forgotten in between.
For when I send a Christmas greeting that is addressed to you,
It’s because you’re on that list of folks whom I am indebted to.
For I’m but a total of the many ones I’ve met,
And you happen to be one of those I prefer not to forget.
And whether I’ve known you for many years or few,
In some way you had a part in shaping things I do.
So every year when Christmas comes, I realize anew,
The biggest gift that life can give is meeting someone like you.
And may the spirit of Christmas that forever and ever endures,
Leave its richest blessings in the heart of you and yours.

Have I mentioned that I love succulents? Good. So I don’t know how these fantastic walls of greenery grow, but I want one in my house:
Do you think that’s possible for me? Look at how in love they are! I love the colors of this wedding: green, grey, turqoise and a majestic red. I don’t think I’ve ever seen these colors come so well together.
Remember when I said that succulents would be a good gift? How ’bout in a can?
I love the pictures of them they stuck in there too. Cute touch.
The cake I designed for them would be two maroon sixteen inch cakes separated by a grey fondant covered dummy cake and sugar paste succulents and feathers. There’d also be a sugar banner on the top of the cake that says “We Did” or maybe their initials. The cake would feed two hundred and eighty.
