holiday card 2015


“Pink” – Art direction by 3 year old
I must confess that these holiday cards can be a bit stressful. We never know what to do, we don’t know where to get the appropriate attire, we don’t want to spend hours and hours and hours because who has the time?!?! But yet we love (kind of) to do them. This year as we were on our way to Goodwill to get “inspired” (ha!) we asked the kid what we should do. Her response: “Pink.” So, there you have it. And I’d have to say this may be one of my favorite of all time.

At a very young age I lost site of my mom in a local grocery store in Boulder, Colorado. I did, however, have the smarts to go to the customer service counter. The kind woman at the counter asked "What is your name little girl?" My reply: "Assi." The woman gave me a look like, "Are you playing with me you little devil?" but she proceeded to blast on the loudspeaker the "We have a lost Assi at the front of the store." Customers throughout the store gagged and giggled, but my mom knew exactly who the woman was referring to: the mullet haired little girl with a tongue too big for her mouth, wearing a leotard, skirt, tights, and jelly shoes (with florescent green laces in them...even though they didn't need the laces). A shy little character for whom every little detail in life was a huge thing. I am pleased to report that today I am able to fully pronounce Allison (aka Ali), but the Assi pseudonym has always stuck, evolving into Aszi. As for the shy little character for whom every little detail in life was a huge thing? Some things never change. I have closed my comments due to mass amounts of spam that no filter could ever control. Feel free to contact me abeckord [at]!
