Happy December.

Wednesday, December 1, 2010

It's here. I won't even bother to wonder how we got here already, I  just won't. It's here. Hello, December. I will say that by this day I am usually already feeling a tiny twinge of anxiety over all the things that need to be done. Lists to be made and things to be shopped for and commitments and parties and....yeah, all that and more. BUT. I am making a concerted effort this holiday season, starting today, to enjoy it. To be in the moment. To have fun with my kids and my little family and not lose sight of what is truly important to me this season. Not to get too caught up in my to-do list. Not to feel like there needs to be more. I do not want to be stressed out and overwhelmed the whole month of December. I want to truly appreciate the season and all it has to offer.

Today is the first day of Tracey Clark's e-class Picture The Holidays and I am participating. I am super excited. I won the registration which makes me even more excited. I think it will be just the thing to help me focus on the beauty of the season and honestly, I could use a little encouragement with my 365. With the weather change and lack of natural light available, I feel like it could be a rough winter with my camera. You can learn more about the class here. Happy December to you.


  1. i try every year to enjoy the season...there is just so much to be done. it's shame, really, that there are so many expectations and money to be spent! i just wake up each morning and remind myself to live in the moment of today.

    i love the new look of your blog, amy! did you do it yourself?

  2. Congrats on the win. I had to pop over to check you out, since I am super-envious that you won. I just scrolled through a couple of posts and am really impressed by your images. So now I can't be all mad that you won instead of me. :-)

    Have fun with it!
