Hope that all of you had a wonderful, safe & blessed holiday season and are looking foward to the new year with as much anticipation as I am. We had a nice relaxing Christmas with my mom & brother here at the house. Everyone loved their gifts, candlelight church service on Christmas eve was lovely, got to hang with friends that evening, Christmas dinner turned out yummy and I spent nearly 2 days in my jammies so I’d say that’s an overall success! As much as I enjoy this time of year, for some reason when the hubby & my family headed out early on sunday morning I decided it was time to take all of the Christmas decor down when I normally am the gal who’s FINALLY taking her tree down in January. I don’t know……I just seemed to have the motivation & energy to do it so down it came. It took me two full days of working but it’s done and put away nicely all tucked away for next year which is a really good feeling. I don’t know if it was because this was our first Christmas without Dad or what, but I was just ready for it to be DONE and now I’m eagerly anticipating to see what 2010 will hold for me personally & professionally. If it’s anything like what 2009 was, it’ll be exciting for sure!
The next week or so I’ll be going back & posting sessions from ’09, the first of which is one I did with my pastor & his family back in August. They gave prints from their session as Christmas presents so I needed to keep their secret with them till now. We did the session at their river-side property which is so lovely. It was a warm summer day but they were troopers & did great and thankfully their print gifts were a hit!
Thank you Deahl family for allowing me to capture memories for you & your family!
We’ll be heading up to Dallas soon to cheer on Oklahoma State in the Cotton Bowl on the 2nd so if I don’t post again before then, I pray all of you have a safe & FUN New Years Eve! Adios 2009, you’ve been a year of extreme highs & the lowest of lows but all in all you were a good one so thank you.
