Photography Challenge: Love

Can you believe I nearly forgot about today's photography challenge?! I have been so insanely busy with my kids home from school and getting ready for Christmas and tweaking and expanding my upcoming photography class, I'm a total scatterbrain these days!

Thank you so much to everyone who participated last week. So sorry that I've not posted a top 5 post for these last two challenges. I hope you understand.

This week's theme is LOVE. This time of year, when we take a moment to pause from the stress and general insanity of the season, there is so much to love.

My mom & me Christmas 2000

I LOVE my Mom. This photo is from the last Christmas before I married the hubs and moved out. Looking back at that time one of the things I enjoyed most was the time that I spent with my mom in the kitchen. My mom was making her traditional family-recipe orange rolls. These days, this time of year is really hard for my family, but I cherish the memories of our traditional, simple Christmases spent together. 

I can't wait to see the love in your life!  You can link up your blog post or Flickr page - just please remember to put a link-back to my blog. You can copy and paste the code in the sidebar to get a button for your blog post and/or sidebar.

Love this picture. My mom now lives on the other side of the U.S. and I miss those times with her.
