Home for the Holidays

Posted on: Monday, December 23, 2013

Hello Friends and Happy Holidays to you!  I am delighted to share in the holiday spirit with a little Home for the Holidays inspired photo shoot.  With the hustle and bustle of the holidays, what better than to find a little time to gather for a holiday at home with friends?  Whether home means flying to see your family or relaxing by your own fireplace, I would love to invite you to partake in a little holiday brunch with me in my home, won’t you?
