Orange Co., NY
Hot chocolate and stoked bonfires made all the more appreciated by the cold country air. Made-to-order wood-fired margherita pizza exploding on our taste buds (probably even so without the flavor-enhancing ingredient of being the only substantial food source available within a five-mile radius).
A relatively unregimented day with my beloved wife in the midst of busy holidays and the chaos of coordinating it all. A day where forfeiting efficiency was the most practical thing we could have done. A day in which we inexperienced newlyweds learned to make our own traditions (as well as how to tie a Christmas tree atop a car without nearly losing it on the drive back home). It was a good day indeed!
A sea (field) of abundant blessings (trees) and our hearts can still trick us into overlooking God's all-surrounding goodness (it's a farm!) by fixating our eyes on attaining perfection in the ultimately meaningless (i.e. the elusive, so-called perfect Christmas tree). Such a perfect time to remember it's about people and not the project!
We also ran into our friends, Jen+Mike (who happens to be a fellow photog)! Yay friends (and yay not having to use a tripod)! Shot below courtesy of Big Mac.
