I hope everyone had an incredible holiday season. I feel like I'm finally back in the swing of things and I saw a really inspirational quote yesterday.  I loved it so much I thought it was a great thing to share with all of you and showcase some highlights from 2016.

"There are far better things ahead than any we leave behind" - CS Lewis

As my daughter continues to grow up (despite my pleading to stay little), this quote made me realize that as she grows older, there are so many incredible things she does as she graduates from each stage of life.  So, instead of spending the next year mourning her inevitable growth, I'm going to try to celebrate it more.

Below are some of my favorite images of 2016 of a very specific set of clients. They are clients that I have watched their children grow up throughout the years. As I mourn the growth of my own daughter, I also keep watching their children grow up. I always joke it is like being in a time machine every time I see them.  So instead of whining "but they used to be so LITTLE", I decided in 2017, I'm going to exclaim " I love how BIG you are getting!"

Enjoy and Cheers to a bright and memory filled year.
