I’m not sure how I am surviving these last few weeks of the year to be completely honest. It feels like a rollercoaster ride, work, editing, sick kids, never ending baskets of laundry, lunches that are missing key things like sandwiches because mom bought the wrong type of turkey. There has to be other people out there that feel the same way about the holidays. Right? If you walked up to me right now and asked, “Hey, how’s it going?” I’m not even going to look up from my beer and tell you “it’s going” as in, I am barely holding it together please don’t say another word until I am at least half way through this hefeweizen. Trust me I know how fortunate I am, I have a j-o-b which affords me the luxury of buying those heavyweight stock cards I wanted, almost all the gifts on my kids list and still have enough for a blow out. I know how lucky we all are yet I still grumble come December, so here’s where little square photos come in. If I can slow down just long enough to take a photo, I can muffle out all the chaos and temporarily forget the frenetic feeling of the holidays.
So what did I capture in those few moments?
Shopping with empty aisles (the key is to go during dinner time.)
Fresh cut trees. (my photos are still on an undeveloped roll) here’s a snapshot on the phone the night we got our tree. note: 2 weeks later the tree looks exactly the same.
Christmas Light Bokeh (our little house with C7 Ceramic lights and a big ol’ moon.)
Pink clouds at dawn. (#ibrakeforpinkclouds)
Giant school buses painted royal blue.
Clouds so high the planes fly underneath them.
Good champagne that after a couple glasses make your lips tingle.
Gingerbread decorating parties
Good luck to everyone getting it all done before the man in the red suit comes.
