Another successful round trip north! Idk about you, but I don’t want to miss my whole small town shutting down the streets, playing live Christmas music on Main, and going from store to store sampling the free food and finding all my friends.
There’s something restoring about coming back to favorite childhood events that still hold all the joy and happiness as when you’re eight and shove your best friend into a snowbank because starting snowball fights is how we knew we were best friends😂
When I was a kid, placing the star on top of the Christmas tree was my all-time favorite part of decorating for the Holidays. My dad used to do this exact same thing - hoist me up on his shoulders so I could reach - and it made me feel so important. Theodore was so excited to decorate this tree and I could just tell that he felt important too. It’s the little moments like this that children will cherish forever & it seriously warms my heart. I also have to say, it’s probably the best tree I’ve ever seen. 🎅🏼🎄❤️
Well friends, today concluded 2018 for me! I feel like I have all of the words in the world to describe this year, but I'm also left speechless. This was my busiest year yet, so that left me stressed, tired, having to choose work over friends and family sometimes, but, it also left me so incredibly happy and grateful, and more inspired than ever. There's so much that I could say about this year, but I'm honestly having a hard time trying to figure out what to say. But to my brides, grooms, bridal parties, seniors, newly engaged couples, families, lil' babies, and everyone else that took the chance to work with me this year, thank you. From the bottom of my heart. Each session, and each wedding was so incredibly special to me. And to my second shooters, thank you for sacrificing weekends to help me out and keeping me sane and having my back. And to my friends and family, I know I say this every year, but thank you for understanding when I put my work over you, and for having to decline trips due to work. Thank you for being the best support system I could ask for. And finally to my 2019 clients. This year has made me so excited for what's in store for you. And to myself, you're doing great. You've grown immensely this year and I'm so proud of you.
If you've made it this far through my sappy post, you rock.
