I hope you all had a wonderful holiday! I am still sorting and editing our Christmas celebration pics. I'm a bit behind but will be back tomorrow and update this post.  (I wanted to get the linky up so you can share your shots from this week.) Can you believe it's all over and 2017 is nearly here?

Updated to add: I have sorted through many less than stellar Christmas photos and have a few more to share. I was operating on little sleep and frankly, my personal shots tend to be just snapshots. I'd rather spend time enjoying the day and being present, not trying to create amazing images. Though exhausting, it was a fun holiday with lots of family time, tons of great food and happy memories made. One can't ask for more than that.

What have you been up to lately? Please link up your posts below and have a safe and very Happy New Year!! Thank you for visiting. <3 p="">

Ready or not here it comes! I can hardly believe Christmas is upon us and this year is all but over. This week was a welcomed break from the norm around here. We baked cookies, wrapped gifts, watched Christmas movies, attended a party, had family visit from out of town - it was busy, but not in the frantic overloaded way in which we normally operate. Just full and fun.  I'm not quite ready for Christmas to be here. I still have lots to do and I would really rather have more time to relax and enjoy the season - but it's just a blink away! So, I will soak up every second that I can.

I want to thank you all for visiting and participating in the FPJ link up this year! I hope you have many treasured memories to look back on from 2016.  I would love to hear about how you plan to use your photos. I plan to tackle organizing my personal images and creating a few photo books with the shots I've taken this year. The kids always love thumbing through them from time to time, and I do too! What do you do with all of the images you take?

Thank you for visiting! Please link up your posts below.
I wish you all a wonderful happy holiday weekend!

Happy Friday all! This week was a bit more relaxing around here - thankfully. I am finally over the huge deluge of work and have buttoned up all of the sessions I have shot. Only one wedding remains to edit - yay! I do have sessions scheduled next week, but I am officially caught up and SO relieved.

We baked cookies twice this week and worked on some gifts the kids could make for family and friends. I didn't shoot much this week, but did bring my camera out to play with the Christmas lights for a few minutes while Little Miss painted her birdhouse. I'm looking forward to a weekend off - yay! The first in months! More family projects, and holiday festivities to come. :)

What are your plans for the weekend?

Thank you for visiting! 
Link up your posts below and have a great week. :)

Happy Friday! Another week down and holy time warp, Christmas is coming so soon! I can't believe it. I have been chained to my desk editing and it feels like life is passing me by.

Little Miss was chomping at the bit to bake Christmas cookies, so I did take a break to bake some gingerbread cookies. Not from scratch (shame), but the girls had fun decorating them nonetheless. I snapped a few quick shots of our brief baking adventure and that's about all I have captured this week. I am nearing the end of my editing marathon and I can't wait to be free!!!

How has your week been?

Thank you for visiting! Have a fantastic weekend. :)

So let me first say how very sorry I am that I completely dropped the ball last week. It was two days after the fact before I even realized I had forgotten to post! How bad is that?! These past couple of weeks have been completely mad and I'm living in a bit of a fog these days. Work has taken on a new life and I don't know up from down. I apologize. I really feel sad that I have neglected this blog. It's a bit of a reflection of my life in general, I'm afraid. I desperately want to get through the mountain of sessions, weddings and edits, so that I can enjoy some family time and a bit of holiday cheer.

And I am also a day late and a dollar (or more) short for this week, I know. I was up until the wee hours last night trying to get through a wedding gallery and had planned to post before bed. When I wandered off to bed, zombified, early this morning, I realized I had neglected once again to edit and post my personal photos. But, I simply couldn't peel myself off of the mattress until 8 AM. So here we are. I have only a few images from our Thanksgiving dinner to share. In the next week or two things should slow down briefly before the final Christmas rush.

We did manage to decorate our tree but that's about as far as we've gotten in our festiveness. Come to think of it, I'm pretty sure I still have a Halloween flag outside the front door. {Hangs head in shame}. I hope you are enjoying the holiday season! What's new on your end?
