It has been over a year since my last post. Let’s just say 2013 wasn’t a good year for my family. On January 12th, my son was in a horrible car accident. It was very tragic and one year later he still has a long way to go, but he’s doing better. In May, my Mother passed away. Then if things couldn’t get any worse, a drunk/high hit-and-run driver hit two our of cars, totaling one of the cars.
Obviously, it’s been a crazy and busy year for us. I haven’t had a camera in my hands since December, 2012. In fact, I was so out of practice and the camera was so heavy, I had to remove the battery grip. Sorry if the images aren’t that clear, but I was happy just to get some photographs taken. Now I have to remember how to use Photoshop. These are out of the camera with a few lightroom adjustments.
My theme for this post is Christmas Memories. We really debated about putting up a tree this year, so soon after my Mother’s passing, but I decided to do it since putting up the tree and going through all of our ornaments made me feel as if she was still here. I did a mix of my ornaments and hers. I remember every ornament she had or that I had given her. Here are just a few of my favorites.
