melaniemauer we’re so soon on the heels of the holidays, that the thought of a valentines gift is the last thing on our minds. but it’s always good to be prepared ;) you love your family so a session and book might be the perfect gift thing to request (or give). grateful for you and the great stories you’re creating - you make my heart burst with appreciation! 3w

melaniemauer indeed! grateful for sundays in so many ways. i've been in hibernation mode these last two weeks just soaking up the sweetness of a year wrapping up with another one waiting in the eaves. grateful for time off to listen and ponder. excited to unwrap 2015 and feeling full of clarity of purpose. thankful for life and the privilege to co-create it. yes, there is a plan. have you heard the story of the elephant and how a handful of people were blindfolded and sent to various parts like the tusk, tail, side...they each thought they knew what they were touching but only had part of the information. the blessed blessed thing about age is that the story of my life is becoming clearer each year. love. and love some more. who you're with. what you're doing. where you are. and that love makes everything so so sweet. and simpler. 4w

melaniemauer the perfect reminder for how to handle the coming weeks:

All too often people get caught up in the anxiety of their fast-paced lives, feeling there is no time to celebrate.

I feel we impoverish our spirits if we don’t regularly come together for some planned happiness to make small moments beautiful. [ Alexandra Stoddard ]

melaniemauer every year, the first presents under the tree are from audrey. walking by them i'm struck by the magical quality of this time of year. pondering ways to record all the sweetness of the season. grateful for families and the love that grows within them. grateful for holidays that align our hearts with what matters. #lifeissooooogood 2mon

melaniemauer deeply grateful for three touching thank you notes this morning. yesterday, as I was photographing someone said "you've really found your calling - you're like a minister of photography." whatever you do, there should be room to do it with love. 4mon
