Christmas 2014 {sweet moments}

This Christmas was filled with the joy of cooking and hosting some family events. I loved it! (I think I have finally developed and mastered a great gluten-free, casein-free stuffing recipe.)

With my hands busy prepping food, I didn't have the time I normally do to take pictures, but I did occasionally pause to take mental pictures and give thanks for the sweet time with family.

Fall 2014 {beauty & joy}

This has been an autumn to remember. Between the fall-time craziness of my photography business and with the local fun family activities, we enjoyed all this season had to offer. Apple picking, visiting the pumpkin patch, Thanksgiving Day and playing in the leaves always make great family memories.

Interestingly, one memory I will forever cherish was made on a day I didn't dare bring out my camera. We visited Sky Top Orchard with close family friends and it rained all day. Torrential rain. ALL day. It was great! We had the place to ourselves as we picnicked, slid around in the mud, ran and laughed in the rain and, of course, trudged across the orchard seeking our favorite apple - pink lady.

I guess some memories are best documented solely in the heart. :)

But here are a few pictures of the rest of our autumn joy...
