Our Christmas break

Happy New Year to you all! I hope you all had a relaxing break. I know the time leading up to the holidays can be extremely hectic and stressful. All the running around getting ready with the hustle and bustle. I get anxious just thinking about it. Luckily all that is behind us for another year. 

This was our Family's Christmas greeting this year.

We had a wonderful time as a family. My mother is visiting us from Finland and spent the Christmas time with us. Our girls have been so happy to have her here. My husband was able to take some time off from work and get the much needed break as well.

Our girls made some gingerbread cookies. This has become a tradition for them before Christmas.

We had no plans to do anything special. Just spend time together and wind down. Breathe. And it was very much needed. Sometimes you just need to be. Nothing else. 

We watched films together. We played games. We built legos. We started our yearly big puzzle. We had naps. We read. We ate goodies...... way too much. We were outside.

And now New Year is here. New challenges ahead of us all I'm sure. I sure feel energized and ready to keep going. I decided to be gentle to myself and leave all kinds of resolutions this year. However, I've been writing a list of things I'd like to do/improve both in my personal life as well as my photography business. We will see what year brings along this list in mind. 

I hope you all have a lovely start to the year! Hugs!
