Our tight little village is about 27 peeps deep. While we don't celebrate every single occasion or birthday I figured it was time to get all the special info in one place. So I made a little black book for everyone. Inside there is a page for each family including a photo and basic stats like address and phone numbers. The facing page has all the birthdays listed as well as email addresses.
Many of these nuggets of info are stored away in our minds and are in mental speed dial or auto fill in our computers. But, we now have an emerging generation of communicators who ask for the info regularly. I have also been stumped but the most basic questions that I am certain this little book would remedy. I have had to fill out emergency info cards many times and am missing the most obvious information because they are my neighbors (Address? Around the corner from me. That doesn't really count for school emergency cards.)
Adrienne revealed her latest movie making talents and captured our snow trip in short film (she's such a gift to us all!). It happened to also be a wine tasting gathering. I figured it was the perfect opportunity to pass out our Little Black Books.
