I took this photo last year during the holidays, shortly after we’d moved out of the city. It’s a little blurry and I can’t quite figure out the angle in which I took it, but I love it. Something about it just makes me smile—it conjures up memories of our first Christmas together in our new home and makes me think of what’s to come. This season we’ll have something new to celebrate, since our daughter will have just been born. We’ll have a highchair seated at our Thanksgiving table, another stocking to fill on the mantle, a new ornament to add to the tree, and tons of new memories to make as a family. To me, there is nothing more tranquil than this—being with the people you love most during the holiday season.
