A Country Christmas Card

December 20, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

It's our first Christmas in Kentucky.  Things are different here, than back in Connecticut.  The weather is warmer, the sun shines less this time of year, and shopping has been quite a challenge.  Our town has just a grocery store and a few small specialty shops, but no mall, no Walmart or Target etc.  There isn't even a Dunkin Donuts or Starbucks around...and if you know me, you know how much of a struggle that's been!!  =) We have gotten used to driving further for things, but there are some days I just don't feel like traveling the distance.  I guess it's good...I've probably saved a lot of money by sticking closer to home.  ha ha  Christmas will be lighter this year, but we are together as a family, and that's truly what matters.  We will be alone - not knowing anyone well enough here to spend the holidays with, but that's ok.  As long as my family is under the same roof, I'm a very happy camper!

For our Christmas card photos this year, I wanted to keep it simple.  I looked for a big red barn, and some horses, but nothing jumped out at me in the short time we had with our son.  He was home from college for a few days at Thanksgiving, so we made due with the local park and a couple friendly horses who live nearby.  These are the photos I was pretty happy with.  Next year I think I'll try harder to find that 'perfect' barn and maybe even some horses that cooperate a bit more.



 

May you have a Merry Christmas and the happiest of New Years!!!
