I‘ll be honest-I loooooove Christmas! I love everything about it…the beautiful spirit that exudes from everyone during this time of year…sugar cookies rising in the oven…gifts wrapped under the tree with ginormous bows adorning them…eggnog…hymns & carols about the birth of the baby Jesus. It’s such a lovely, special time of year. I feel that at Christmas time we let our love for others shine through, we become a little more selfless & a little more thoughtful to our fellow man. How I wish we could keep the same spirit of Christmas alive throughout the year!
One of my fondest Christmas memories is waking up early Christmas morning with my sisters to try to peek at the gifts that Santa had brought. All four of us would crawl into bed together & excitedly talk about the gifts we hoped we would receive. We would laugh & talk until we eventually fell asleep. What I have realized as I’ve grown up is that my favorite Christmas memories are not those of gifts & presents…my favorite memories are of my family spending time together, being together & making memories together. I hold those times spent with my family as some of my most treasured gifts. I hope we can all take the time this Christmas to express our love for those special people in our lives.
Here are some of my very favorite photographs I’ve taken during the Christmas season. Wishing each & every one of you a very special Christmas-from my family to yours! With love to all, xoxo, marielle.
Here’s our family Christmas photograph. It’s a little hard to take your own family photos but I think they turned out alright!
