A lot of things have been different this year. We’ve decided that’s a good thing. A little differentness… both physically, with our home renovation, and emotionally, with some important relationships growing & changing… differentness can be good. It can be cathartic. It can propel you forward. Our entire family is going to be able to look back on 2014 as a learning year… a building year… a growing year. Luckily, we’ve grown closer together, so we can look back on 2014 as a really fantastic year, as well.
You know what else 2014 is? It’s OVER. At least, professionally. We don’t have another blog post on the schedule until Monday, January 12th, and I’m REALLY excited about that. We’re going to hopefully finish up this phase of our house, spend a lot of time sitting & enjoying it, and then take the kids (and my parents) on an incredible Walt Disney World adventure after the first of the year.
Rest assured, when we come back, it’ll be with weddings & engagements and all sorts of other gorgeousness to share. We’ll definitely be hitting the ground running, and that makes this little holiday break all the more necessary.
If you need to get in touch with us, don’t worry… we’re not, like, going to Saturn or anything.I’ll still be answering emails regularly through the holidays, and we’re going to keep meeting with (and booking!!) amazing new 2015 brides. We’re about 2/3 full for the year, but that leaves plenty of room for some new McG couples to get on the schedule, so don’t be afraid to drop us a line and get something on the books.
Oh, and one more thing…
If you didn’t get a Christmas card from us this year, don’t be offended. No one did. That’s one of the things that got cut from the list. I already have ideas to make next year’s card pretty freakin’ epic… but this year, every time we thought about getting out & taking pictures and designing & ordering & addressing & mailing a card, all I heard in my head was garbled noise. Like, you know how the grownups sound, in “Peanuts”? That’s what we heard. Just couldn’t make it happen.
We took that… that indication of the special kind of crazy this season of our lives has been… and embraced it. This is Christmas 2014. I hope I’ll remember it for my entire life.
With kids that cute, you never just take the one photo…
Merry Christmas, all of you. Thank you for reading this blog, for leaving 5 years worth of encouraging comments, and most of all, for hiring us. Your support of our business is the reason we get to live the life of our dreams. It isn’t always easy, but it’s worth the work, and we hope what we provide for all of you keeps you coming back year after year.
Let’s hang out in 2015.
