a lazy, linky christmas card

23 Dec

merry christmas from my side of the screen to yours!

the barnhart family does new york

if i did get around to writing a christmas letter this week it would include such well-expressed highlights as:

  • hey, we moved! yep, to bethlehem (pennsylvania, not palestine)
  • we now live in a crow’s nest.
  • luke just checked off one semester down in his masters-degree-getting. he’s studying english literature at lehigh university, teaching freshmen a thing or two about composition, and loving life in the lehigh valley!
  • abby worked the freelance life for a while and now has settled into a job as the (self-titled) digital marketing strategist for a kid’s music company. more to come in 2011 on that excitement. her favorite things about life right now include trips to NYC with visiting friends, exercising with jillian michaels, walking the streets of our little town, fixing up our new place, cooking a lot, and writing here on this little blog.
  • in the new year i’m looking forward to reading through the bible in 90 days with some bloggers and friends, working on my creative writing a bit more, seeing a few freinds tie the knot, and getting our many wonderful closets organized.

it’s a tough life, but somebody’s got to love it!

merry christmas friends!

    The links are what make it 10 times better than a Christmas letter. So fitting since you’re in the biz! there’s that part about it being easier, but why say it now when you said it so much better months ago? having some christmas here now by showing kyle “love actually” for the first time. i think he’s in.

    Amber and I recently stood on that same spot. Took a similar picture. It was, perhaps, a bit more summery, but still chilly at the top. NYC is a magical city.

      it’s a great photo-opp, and yes – truly a magical city! we could put the photos in a diptych frame :).
