Christmas Card 2016

A very Pacific Northwest Christmas Card for 2016!

Wanted to pop in to wish everyone a Merry Christmas, and to share with you this year’s Christmas card! I posted all of our Christmas photos in early December, but this was the winning photo that made our card! I know I’ve said it before, but this is my absolute favorite holiday. I hope you are cozy by a fire, drinking eggnog and feeling the warmth of the holiday. A very Merry Christmas to you and yours!

Photos taken at Christmas tree farm on Bainbridge Island, Washington in the beautiful Pacific NorthwestHappy December everyone! December is my favorite month of the whole year, and Christmas is my favorite holiday. How could it not be? The gift giving, the baking, the twinkle of lights. Not to mention, I have a very big birthday coming up in a few days, as does my husband! There is something magical about December, and I soak it in every year.

I was thrilled to have the opportunity to do a family shoot at a beautiful Christmas tree farm here on Bainbridge Island. I quite literally shed a tear when I saw the photos. Since I was a little girl I have dreamed of having a family of my own to celebrate the holidays with. Last year Julian was only weeks old when December rolled around. I was too deep in that new mama daze to truly enjoy the holidays. Think exhaustion bordering on delirium; you mamas know! So I have been eager for what feels like my first holiday season with my little family. I love how Whitney captured our family, and the magical feel of the season. It makes me feel even more excited for the holidays!

For us, December means cookie baking, cider drinking and celebrating with the ones we love. Our family makes a point to focus on spending time together over the holidays, as opposed to emphasizing gifts. I mentioned it briefly in an autumn to-do list post, but it is one of my favorite family traditions. On Thanksgiving we all draw names out of a hat and everyone gets one gift for the family member they drew. It’s a nice way to keep the holidays simple and to focus on what really matters; family. I hope you are all feeling the cheer of the holiday season already. Do you have any holiday family traditions you love? I would love to know!
