Christmas Card Photo Fail

I thought I was making my life easier, I thought that instead of spending hours pouring over 500 cell phone pics because I never use my real camera I would take the kids to my favorite photographer to get our Christmas card done this year. After all, it’s been awhile since I had a picture […]

Christmas Then vs Now

Growing up I loved the month of December. When my mother declared it time to for me and my sisters to take down all the holiday decorations from the attic I was euphoric.
