Since moving to Europe this summer, we spend almost all of our free time traveling. We spent a few weeks in Italy over the summer and fell in love with the people and culture. One thing in particular, is Italian breakfast. It is a simple affair – meats and cheeses, fresh fruit, yogurts, breads and simple pastries. Most of it is store-bought and from a local bakery. One thing that is always on the table and is always homemade is a yogurt cake.
Every year I am so busy photographing other families’ holiday portraits, rushing the orders out so they can get cards ordered, or editing weddings in time for Christmas gifts… to even think about getting my own family portraits taken for our own cards. I am always last minute with anything holiday as it is. My job only makes this whole process harder.
Christmas cards are one of my favorite things each year. We are a military family, and it is nice to see our friends and family that we have said goodbye to in our mailboxes each holiday season. I love taking our Christmas pictures each year and I love getting loads of mail that isn’t bills each December. It has always been one of my favorite holiday traditions. I look forward to it all year long.
