Of all the photos taken over the years, it's funny how one can stand out as perfect. This one is sort of symbolic to me as he's always carrying us it seems. Reminds me of my own dad. There will potentially be a fight over which of us little ladies get to claim him as their Valentine this year, but that's ok with me because he's simply the best person I know. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
PS: Can't take credit for this pic. It's the work of my favorite local photographer @rachelnoelalbrecht, who thankfully is available even when it's an eternal winter in Michigan and I decide I need to capture more memories. Only to later forget where I have kept them. xo
We decorated for Valentine💕s Day, ordered 🍕and watched a 🎥. But my favorite was the snuggling. A snow day win! And rumor has it there’s more where that came from. The snow that is.. well, and the snuggles too.
Hopefully the cure for ALL the things. Spring can arrive any time now. Meantime it’s hemp milk, turmeric, ashwagandha, raw honey, cardamom and black pepper (for best absorption) to the rescue! #goldenmilk 🍯✨
This is her "who scheduled family photos outdoors in 8 degree temps" face. But we braved it together and I'm so glad we did. Thanks to @rachelnoelalbrecht for not calling me crazy and for the precious gift of her beautiful work.
The shopping is done and the presents are *almost* all wrapped, but for me, the most precious gifts are right here. The year seems to have flown by but not without counting each and every blessing.
Wishing you and yours a season of gladness,
a season of cheer,
and to top it all off...
a wonderful year!
I'm also grateful to have been able to shoot some of our favorite family photos with @rachelnoelalbrecht. And I'm looking forward to our next shoot scheduled for before the new year!
Busy fall mornings don't allow much time for food creativity, but comforting staples like turmeric tea with collagen peptides and sprouted toast always help. And, have you tried maple syrup in your tea? You must! I love it for the lower than honey glycemic score, beneficial nutrients and as an antioxidant boost.
