Oh and so the year draws to a close. This month we chose to do a festive five. We are all busy and tired and ready to take it easy. I know for one I am. The last 4 months have been hectic, and the first weekend in December we had the privilege of hosting, decorating, planning, taking photographs, and watching our baby girl marry the man of her dreams. Suffice to say I was ready for the Christmas / New Year break. Already half of it is over and I feel like I have really done so little. However, that said the break has been great and I am hoping that the next 7 days will have me refreshed and ready to kick back into a busy schedule at work.
I thought about sharing Christmas photo’s but honestly I did not take to many, and besides I have been editing wedding photo’s for the last 3 weeks. However, my brother flew in for a conference the day before the wedding and I was so grateful that he was there. When you have no family in the country you are living in, it is always a blessing to have them fly in. After the wedding we drove him up to Orlanda, via the middle of Florida, and stopping at a place I have wanted to visit for at least a year – Bok Gardens in Lake Wales.
My festive five come from their beautiful Christmas gardens.
This was a great way to get ready for the Christmas season. The beauty of the gardens and the stunning Christmas decorations kept us there longer than we had planned, but it was so worth the visit.
This leaves me with one wish, that you may all have a blessed and wonderful 2019. I wish you love, peace, joy, good health and blessed time with your families.
Thank you for sticking with us for another year of 30 Minutes. Just a reminder that this is a circle blog, so take some time to visit my friend Stacey of Stacey Markel Photography, and see what she has for you this year.
