Throwback: This Time Last Year

Honestly hard to believe that this time last year we had a baby and were running around from NYC to Northampton to Vermont to NYC to PA to OH to Ithaca and back to NYC all in a matter of 10 days. It was by far the most interesting holiday, however with lots of highs, lows, family drama, broken down car in Northampton, being locked out of an apartment in Central Harlem in the middle of the night, Chinatown on Christmas Day and even an anaphylactic reaction in the middle of PA. It was a tough moment for the Brand Fam and this year we are going to relish in our peaceful, non-traveling, family alone time.

What was brilliant for us were the bright smiles and warm sparkly eyes lighting up at the sight of our little girl. She is a beloved, happy child and we are so lucky to have shared her first Hanukkah Christmas with all that she loves. From afar in Guatemala we reminiscing and definitely missing being apart of everything, but more than anything enjoying pictures from many holidays celebrated together.
