The Christmas season brings with it a thousand traditions big and small. From sentimental decorations to secret family recipes to sacred customs. It seems that significance is infused into everything around us. I love to take moments out during the holidays to reflect on all of the things I am thankful for around me and in my life. For our family, it’s a deployment year. Which means that we’ll be minus one during the season and beyond. It is a stark but valuable reminder to our family to be thankful for all of the time we do get to spend together knowing how precious each moment really is. I saw a sign recently that read, “What if you woke up tomorrow with only the things you thanked God for today?” It struck me as an especially good reminder for me this holiday season.
Taking a note from finding significance in all that surrounds us during the holiday season try changing up the color schemes on your Christmas layouts to another color that helps tell the story of your Christmas photos. The sweetness of these photos of daddy and daughter taken just before he left for deployment are wrapped in the charm of the soft textures and colors of the paper and embellishments.
