A few days ago I had a wild hair, and decided that we needed to go do a snowy, woodsy photo shoot together as a family.Problem was, we didn't have a photographer and there wasn't really any snow on the ground... where we lived anyway. So we drove up a canyon or two, until we found some.
Yes, I was determined... and as far as a photographer was concerned, our self-timing camera and a remote clicker would just have to do :)
In reality, I think that the snow just has this really amazing way of saying... "psssst... Christmas is almost here!". And since Christmas is my MOST favorite holiday, it literally makes me giddy to even sense it's presence.
My fondest memories from growing up, and now having this wonderful little family of my own, always seem to revolve around this time of year. Birthday's, anniversary, etc...
So I promise, it's not that I'm forgetting about Thanksgiving, or want it to hurry up and be over with because I don't like it... it's just that I love Christmas more! Plain and simple.
And guess what?... I don't feel ashamed about it one, single bit.
I've got a few fun ideas for this years decor in the works. I'm hoping to get a lot of it up this week, in time to share it with you right after Thanksgiving (and maybe even a little before).
Until then, have you seen all of Destiny's Christmas goodness?
