Christmas 2013

It's my favorite time of the year: Christmas!!! :)

As I look back on this past year, all I can say is that 2013 has been crazy ! We started the year in Kansas: I was working a full-time job and doing photography part-time; Hadley was in preschool full-time; and Avram was stationed at Fort Riley. Then, out of nowhere, he got orders to Fort Belvoir, VA... and just like that, we were planning yet another move (our fifth move in the past 7 years, in case you were wondering). Now we're ending the year in Virginia: my photography business has taken off here and I've been busier this Fall than I've ever been before (thank you, East Coast!); Hadley started Kindergarten and is now six years old; and Avram routinely goes to Washington, DC for work. It's crazy, it's scary, and it's weird how fast things change... but this is our life. We're just thankful that we can be together this holiday season!

I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas Eve tonight and a fantastic Christmas Day tomorrow!! Enjoy this most special time of the year with family, friends, and loved ones, and never forget the real reason for the season. :)

Merry Christmas from our family to yours!!
