I have a love/hate relationship with the digital age we live in.
I kind of hate that unless your phone is turned completely off anyone can find you at any time. For the record, I never, ever turn my phone off. Not while I have kids out in the world, which is most all the time, but that's not important right now.
But I love when friends send me photos and we can share exactly what we're doing at any given time. It's the modern-day "thinking of you" greeting card.
In December, Lucy and I made vats and vats of Cuban eggnog, or Creme de Vie. I packaged it in the best, most beautiful bottles I could find and made custom tags to attach to them.
We delivered the local ones and I sent them out to friends that don't live in our immediate area code, too.
In this modern age, the "thank you" usually comes electronically (and I'm absolutely fine with that) and many times the gratitude comes with a photo.
Like this one, with the note that read:
"Thank you for the yummy treat and the beautiful bottle too! xoxo"
That's my dear friend, Desi Arnaz Jr. (be still my foolish heart!) sipping some of my famous Creme de Vie. *sigh*
He can keep the bottle. I'll keep the "xoxo." ;-)
