I love the holiday season, when yummy catalogs arrive in the mail each day and the magazine racks are filled with inspirational photos of Christmas decor. And, every once in a while a company creates a brilliant (in my humble opinion) ad campaign that makes me stop, reflect and generally feel happy.
I was so thrilled when the UPS man pulled up today and delivered this to my front door:
I have seen some people mention it in blogland, but it is even more beautiful in real life. I am looking forward to looking at it tonight when the kids are in bed. If you are an Orla Kiely fan, this is a must have in your collection.
I haven't been around much as I am doing my best to get my photography business up and running, including a website, marketing materials, etc. However, I didn't want today to slip by without acknowledging all that I have to be grateful for. I am richly blessed and for that I am eternally grateful. I hope you all have a blessed Thanksgiving and a day filled with love, joy and gratitude.
All I could do was smile when Sean brought this family portrait home today. It is part of a little booklet he put together. When I first looked, though, I had no hair and when I pointed this out to Sean, he told me he forgot. Then he lauged and said, 'and your a lady too...you need hair.' He quickly remedied the situation with crayons that were on the kitchen table. I feel much better now!
For me, it doesn't get any better than this. I love children's artwork. I loved it when I was a teacher and now it is even more special when it is created by my own children.
