Here’s to moving forward but never forgetting the lessons of yesteryear…

One of our favorite times of the year is upon us. It’s a time of reflection, connection, and of course, a fantastic excuse for us to come up with yet another ridiculous family portrait (this one being inspired by the well-known Olan Mills Classic 80’s portrait).

Alongside the portrait, we decided to give our Christmas card budget over to a few foundations that we strongly believe in. So not only are we able to share our Holiday wishes and latest portrait with our friends and family but we’re also able to budget and donate to a few great causes. All of it being done with you in mind… Thanks for the inspiration.

The foundations we chose this year were, The National Park Foundation- “Protect, Connect, Inspire!” And United Way of Southern California in order to aide in the #ThomasFireFund. The fires that recently hit our state, left many homeless and injured, and right before the holiday season. It’s been heartbreaking and the Thomas Fire continues to burn with only 70% containment.  If you would like to donate to these foundations, we strongly encourage. The links to both can be found within the photos below.

Thank you so so much for your readership and support. It’s been a fantastic year and we cannot wait to see what destinations 2018 may hold.

In the meantime, we wish you the very best Holiday Season ever. xoxo!
