#reverb10 – day 20
December 20 – Beyond Avoidance.
What should you have done this year but didn’t because you were too scared, worried, unsure, busy or otherwise deterred from doing? (Bonus: Will you do it?)

There are lots of serious things I could put here… but in light of the season, I’ll stay a bit lighter.
Held a party in celebration of Baby M. I passed up a shower in the spirit of having a “sip and see” and well… it just didn’t happen. Along with the birth announcements getting out in time.
I know the party isn’t for her… but it’s for our friends who genuinely wanted to meet/visit/see her. And I feel horrible that I didn’t make that happen for them.
I’m planning to make amends with starting to plan her 1st b-day now (yes – I’m already WAY behind the way-more-prepared moms who planned at 6 months old). It will happen, invites will go out in January, and we’ll have the celebration of life that we really wanted to have this year.

Great idea! But don’t feel bad. I never did announcements for Lily and haven’t even thought about her birthday!
