simply… christmas time.

it’s just a few days until christmas.  the house is cozy and decorated.  but the week we just finished was really tough.  feeling so tired & overwhelmed, anxious, and… tired…  a little camera therapy and re-framing my thoughts to the beauty of a simple christmas.  and the true focus of the holiday.

simplicity is something i admire, i respect, i strive for…  but it doesn’t come naturally.

seems like just picking up the camera and putting the f-stop really low and taking pictures of things around my home and my children does wonders to remembering to focus on the little beauties, the simple little things like the joy of baking for my 5 year old and the many expressions of my three month old.  so here’s to the final days before christmas and keeping them more simple.  merry christmas & love to all.  remember to focus on the real reason of the holiday & little simple beauties.

oh stacy, these may be my favourite festive shots of the season :) I have loved being away with my family this christmas, but these photos make me look forward to spending it at home next year, to have the WHOLE of december baking and decorating and not just half of it before we have to get on a plane. belated christmas wishes to you and your beautiful family! humble thanks for all the inspiration you have unknowingly given me this year xx

Kai is quite possibly the most adorable little man ever… Both my girls had lots of hair and I surely hope I will have a little guy with lots of hair someday too. He really is the sweetest. Merry Christmas! Your photos are lovely.

A beautiful time and place. The efforts to ‘de-stress’ and simplify and see the good and beautiful will be worth every effort.

AMAZING!!! …and thank you for the perspective. “simple” does not come naturally to me, I’ll take all the reminders to take hold of it I can get. :) Love the pictures!!!
