I promised myself “family, coziness, overeating, and crashing on the couch” and December mostly delivered. Long walks and board games, Christmas parties, baking cookies, travels, snuggles with nieces, movies, beer, a bit of gift knitting, and tons of turkey. We got our wedding photos a couple of days before Christmas, and I cried happy tears while looking at them. (A post to share some is in the works!)
The month was quiet for shooting, until the last week of the year which was packed with two weddings in the space of four days: Amanda & Ryan’s Halifax wedding, and Carol & John’s New Year’s Eve celebration (coming soon!). I updated my website and portfolio, designed and ordered new sample albums, and shared a huge post of 2014 behind the scenes images. Bonus wedding features: Kady & Seth on the Styled in Lace blog, and Ashley & Hannah on the Reef to Cove blog!
All last month though, something was missing. I think it was peace. I should have been quietly living in the moment, and instead my mind was racing the entire month. Plans, promises, to-do lists, changes I want to tackle, goals to make. On the bright side, January is exactly the time to deal with those things. I have a to-do list that’s currently 30 points long and growing, so let’s go.
