if I’m being honest…

so it hurts me to say this…but if I’m being honest, the Christmas spirit has escaped me so far.  Without being too much of a downer, it’s been an emotional roller coaster the last few weeks…desperately trying to slow down and catch my balance.  I’ve struggled with stopping to enjoy the season with my family and balance the stress of piles of holiday cards, proofs, gifts, hormones! and everything else that us mommies do this time of year.  I fear I’m not alone since Christmastime can be the opposite of what it’s *supposed* to be for lots of ladies.  and another confession – I’m actually looking forward to the days/nights when the sleep deprivation comes from my new baby infant rather than the computer.

Oh that feels good just to be honest.  Anyway, I do hope for all of my friends, family members, clients and the like, that the magic lives inside of you.  At least a sweet mismatched boy is livin’ it up  🙂  he’s a happy camper (most of the time) and his mama might be slightly obsessed with the pretty twinkle light bokeh (like all the other photogs out there!!)

    sara - take a few deep breaths and step away from the computer! breath, breath! lol you’re almost at the finish line, sweetie! soon you’ll be holding that beautiful baby boy in your arms and you will have all the time in the world to just relax and enjoy your boys 🙂 well, for a couple months anyways. haha i know christmas time is stressful, but look at all the families you have blessed with your talent and passion. those families trusted you to document a precious time in their lives and they get to share those moments with all their friends and family by sending them those cards and photos you created for them. so all these long hours you’ve been putting in are truly appreciated by your fabulous clients 🙂 holy cow this is long! just wanted to say that i love you honey!! xoxoReplyCancel

    Cindy - Oh no bestie, I know how to cure those blues. With a play of course. You’ll be Santa ( obviously ) and I’ll be Mrs. Clause. We’ll go on a journey looking for baby Jesus. I’ll have to write our speaking parts and setting, but it. Will. Be. Awesome. So, just smile knowing that the best Christmas you’ve ever had is about to happen. I love you and miss you and I’m waiting for you to come over. ( that parts real, you said so! )ReplyCancel

    Jenny - I totally and completely understand! I am trying to be minimal this year when it comes to gifts and computer time. Hence taking ALL of December off. Step away from the computer and like Sara said…BREATH 🙂ReplyCancel

    Caroline Walberg - First of all, these are the CUTEST pics of your little man ever. He looks like he should be in a Gap commercial 🙂

    Hope you get to have sometime to relax and get into the Christmas spirit. We only do gifts now for kiddos-we stopped doing them with family members (including parents- we celebrate Bdays and Mother’s Days, etc with gifts). None of us need anything and it takes SO much stress out of the Holidays having to shop for less people-we can focus on shopping for the kiddos and spending time together.

    Sending you hugs! Hormones aren’t helping either but take some time to enjoy the little things too 🙂ReplyCancel
