#TBT with Hyde Park Jewelers

What a busy holiday season! Mike and I had such a beautiful Christmas with my family and then on New Year's Eve we got married! Holidays can be hectic enough as is it is, so why not throw a wedding in there, right? It went off without a hitch but I will save all of that for another day.

This Christmas, for a different swing on engagement photos, Mike and I decided to do something more intimate and had a photo shoot at our new house to capture us cooking breakfast and exchanging gifts. It was cozy and felt more like us. (Maybe we're covering up for our laziness of not wanting to get out of our pajamas.) Either way, we got some sweet shots of us just "being" in our home so we'll forever have these to remember the early years together.

There is something to be said about simply reveling in a moment. Once an event, a party, or the holiday season is all over, how many times do you catch yourself or someone else saying, "Can't believe it's over. That went by so quickly!" It can be so hard to discipline yourself to just be still. Whether it's to enjoy company at your house while you make your best attempt at being a great hostess or to stop and thank God on what may seem to be a drab day.

I try to journal daily, but I have a tendency to journal only when there seems to be something worth writing about. This year, I'm not going to make any resolutions but what I would like to do is write at least one significant thing about each day in my planner. Mike and I play a fun game that my parents started where we tell each other our "high" and "low" of the day. Then you yourself has to stop and think about the best and worst thing that happened that day. What often happens with us is that we can think about something great but nothing bad. That's a great moment to stop and be appreciative for your life.
