Julie wrote about her first time and Meari did it too, so, why not, I'm brave enough to tell you the story about my first time.
I'm kind of late bloomer, I did my first time when I was about 37. Do not get me wrong, I did try before and I'd try different styles before but not the way when I did it first time. I was far away from home and family, sometimes feeling very lonely in a big world and living on my own. At that time I lived in California... (it's not only my heart that I lost in San Francisco...)
I was shopping and a few Santas caught my eye, shortly after they was driving with me home. My English was very poor, but I thought: how difficult it could be? I have the chart, the legend and the dictionary. I can do it! And I did it! It wasn't perfect but I loved it. And I've got hooked! Here is the evidence of my first time
And I display it with pride every single Christmas since then...
So long my friends,
