It's not about presents but it is about your presence. Therein lies the spirit of the holiday season.
― Julieanne O'Connor
Such true words! Amidst the holiday bustle, I pause to reflect on the many blessings in my life - the most important of which is my family. This fall my parents came to visit and we celebrated with a formal family portrait session. As I look at these images I see love, devotion, joy, compassion and a true appreciation for one another. I can also remember so many of the treasured moments we shared!
During the holidays and all year long, what I am most thankful for is time spent with those I love. There is no substitute for creating memories together. This Christmas, my wish to you is to be present. Cherish those who are important to you and celebrate by spending quality time together.
