This year, I made a promise to be more intentional during the holiday season. You see, every year, I tend to get a little overwhelmed by all of the holiday hustle and bustle. I stress over having the perfect Christmas décor, attending all of the holiday events, and of course, capturing every moment on camera. Whew, it’s a lot!

After years of obsessing over the holidays, I decided that it was time to make a few changes. I wanted to be present in the moment and focus on creating new Christmas memories with my family. I wanted to be a “go-with-the-flow” kind of mom, and not worry if every moment was picture perfect. And you know what—I think I nailed it!
