A few outtakes from a recent photo shoot, when I took over 100 photos of these ruffians in order to produce two reasonably good pictures (not shown here) for our holiday card.
The calendar's about to change, hurtling us forward into a new year, an ocean of white space yet to be filled. A year of joys and sorrows we cannot predict. A year of smaller paychecks, apparently (thank you, elected officials). A year of challenges we choose for ourselves and those that sneak up and hit us from behind. A year of embracing imperfection in ourselves and others, because we choose love over fear and gratitude over anxiety. A year of the crazy wonder of living with, and loving, growing human beings.
May you run forward to meet it with open arms, my friends.
Happy New Year!
