Ah—December Daily. Such a fun tradition. What I love about it is it makes me more intentional about saving memories and getting cute photos throughout the month. This was probably the most rushed and stressful holiday season I can remember, but I can STILL look back on it with a smile because of this book. I love that!
I’ve done this a few other years, I think this was my third time! Here’s 2014’s album and 2013’s album. Last year I intended to do it, but I never got around to it. I definitely regretted breaking my tradition. So I vowed to complete it this year no matter what!
I decided to include our NYE party in the book because A. I have WAY more cute photos of it, and B. it was one of my favorite holiday memories ever. It was so much fun and a great bonding experience for J and I to tag-team throwing a big dinner party.
OK! That’s all for this year! Thinking ahead for next year, I think I would like to change it up next year. I was thinking about it as I was putting this together. I think next year I’d like to focus more on photography and maybe tell a handful of stories, but mostly make a big photo book with big photos. That’s pretty far off, so we’ll see what I’m feeling when the time comes. Laura also did December Daily this year, so here’s a few shots of what her December looked like!
