Christmas Scenes | Winter | Holiday Photography

With Christmas around the corner the scent of pine has completely filled the home. Candles are lit and flickering, resting behind the frosted panes of glass. Stockings are carefully hung on the mantle. A blazing wood fire casts a warm dancing glow across the living room. The white bulbs of our decorated tree pair well with this golden light. This is the feeling of Christmas I always grew up with and remember so well. An occasional crackle from the wood fire lightens the spirits. Warmth surrounds you here. This cozy nook is inviting and where I’ve found inspiration for writing lately. After all, this is my favorite season. In the last few days of shopping before the holidays – I’d like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas. Enjoy this time with your family.

Here are a few highlights of the season.From helping gram decorate her tree to decorations in the yard.
