Happy Holidays!

Hope you’re all having a wonderful holiday with your family and friends. Ours has been great so far! We’ve been lucky enough to spend Christmas time with both our families and have taken some time off from work to enjoy our home and do some things we don’t normally have time for. We got some awesome gifts this year… got the Nintendo DS I’ve been hoping for, a sweet new monitor for my photography work, a new wafflemaker and so many other cool things. Santa also hooked Doug up with a new work bench and cabinet for his workshop. Santa was so good to us.. thanks, Santa:)It’s about that time when we start reflecting on the past year and start planning for and thinking about the new year ahead (oh, and all that post-holiday cleaning…)

It’s been a very busy and happy year for us. We’ve settled into our new house in Durham, and have loved becoming part of a new area. We both worked hard at our “office jobs” this year and are excited about what the new year will bring. Doug will continue his engineering job, and I’ll be starting off 2008 with full-time photography! I left my Account Management job a couple weeks ago, and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to live my dream. I’ll be getting my business together over the coming weeks, and will finally start some “real” advertising. I hope to book lots of weddings and other photo sessions in 2008… Wish me luck and send any potential clients my way!

This year we finally sent out a complete family photo for our Christmas card; it’s usually just a photo of our dogs dressed in ridiculous things, looking completely miserable, and leaving every one to wonder what WE actually look like that year. We had a little double family photo session with our friends John, Amber, and their dog, Jackson. Here’s the one Amber shot of us for this year’s card.  For those of you who aren’t already familiar with my family… that’s Jack sporting the ridiculous sweater and uninterested expression (he’ll be four years old in March), Doug, my handsome husband, and Brady, our happy little man; (he’ll be three in February).


One more thing I’d like to share… each year while we visit my family in Lenoir, we drive by a particular house that we think is a little over the top when it comes to yard decor. Last year we counted 22 of these things… and this year, a whopping 27! Hilarious…


Happy Holidays every one!
