Christmas was a whole new adventure this year for me. I have had so many wonderful blessings this year that I am thrilled for the future. I started the year off on Valentines Day when I had my first and only son, Rider. Then.... I got to start back to work at Tanner Portraits this fall as their second main photographer and their "Go Get Em' Girl" I wear many "hats" I guess you could say. Working in the office as well as photographing... I love it! I am living the dream, raising a son and watching him grow as I grow myself and consistantly accomplishing goals. More than half of every paycheck I sunk into Rider's Christmas I think, his dad did as well. Unfortunatly Bryan wasn't able to get to join us on Christmas which kinda sucked honestly, but it wasn't his fault... freak motorcycle accident... bike got loose on gravel, same thing happened to my grandma, it could happen to anyone, it just happened at the worst time. So I tapped the entire night so he wouldn't miss out on anything... and let others get a glimpse into our First Christmas with Rider. Since my mom and aunt passed away Christmas wasn't the same, but now our family tradition is coming back, I am going to make sure of it!
ps.. I think I am more excited than Rider!!! :) I can tell but just watching... I am sooo giddy!
The future holds such greatness ahead! :) EEEEK!
