Holidays 2014

Erin and I always enjoy the holiday season; this year was no exception. Though we both come from rather tight-knit families, we’re busy, just like everyone else. I love the holidays because it compels us all to slow down and spend time with one another.

This year, the holidays were even better than usual for a couple reasons. For one, my parents have retired just 45 minutes west of us. For the first time ever, we could celebrate both holidays with both sides of the family, without a 6-10 hour car ride between.

But most importantly, this holiday was amazing thanks to our new arrival. Having geographically distant relatives meet Declan was amazing. Everyone’s reaction was unique, which made every introduction that much more special.

Here are a few of my favorite photos from this holiday season:
