Snapshots from Christmas 2014

I know I'm pretty late posting this but honestly, since it's only March, I feel like it's less behind then usual. So I'm not going to feel too guilty about it. I've actually been really happy with all these posts I've been getting out in the last few weeks. I'm trying to do it more regularly and since I now have a tiny bit more free time, I'm making the most out of it. I've never been someone who can just relax. Even when I get a little extra time on my hands I just end up just throwing myself into a new project. Anyways, here are some snaps from Christmas.

Started off the Christmas season with an Holiday Afternoon tea party complete with scones, mince pies and tiny finger sandwiches. Plus a live harpist to amp up the sophistication of the afternoon.

I took 24 pictures of Christmas trees over the 24 days leading up to Christmas. It was the best. So much fun.

But best of all, I spent the holidays surrounded by the most loving of families. What more could one ever want? That's what Christmas is all about.

....oh and I had a ton of baths ;) cause this chilly winter requires a certain kind of warmth only that baths can achieve.
