And just like that, we’re into a new year. This holiday season felt different for me as I had more time at home to spend with my family. Between cookie baking and holiday decorating, we had a wonderful holiday season.
But the holiday is now over, and everyone is headed back to work today. So it’s only fitting that I sit down and take the time to recap my wonderfully busy and beautiful 2018.
To all of the couple’s who trusted me to document their wedding, both in Colorado and across the U.S., THANK YOU. I could not have even dreamed of taking the big leaps I did this year without your support and kindness. You are the best.
