Merry Christmas: personal || dfw engagement & wedding photographer

Friday, December 21, 2012

The Boy and I are leaving this afternoon to spend Christmas with his family in snowy (snow! for Christmas!) Indiana.  This has been the happiest holiday season of my life--it's so much fun getting to decorate your own little home, start family traditions, and buy ridiculous stocking stuffer items for your husband ;)  There are moments when it has felt a little bittersweet, when I've thought about spending my first Christmas away from my family, and how I won't be posing for the annual picture on the stairs with my siblings on Christmas morning... but at the same time I'm so happy to be spending Christmas with my best friend and new family, and very excited about this new phase of life!

We've had fun collecting Christmas decorations this first holiday together, and making our little home look festive ;)

Merry Christmas!

p.s. I will be taking the next week off of work for the holidays, so I won't be blogging, checking email, etc.
