Seriously, how is it the end of the year, already?!? As we wrap up for the year and take some time to give ourselves a little R&R, I wanted to tell you how much I appreciate you stopping by here however often you do. I love sharing my inspirations, ideas, bits of my life and my work with you guys, and I look forward to bringing you more fun things in 2014.

As we close out the year, I wanted to share a few of our holiday family photos with you. We love reflecting on how much has changed each year and also to provide a memory we can look back on for the future. These were taken by the talented duo at LK Griffin (who will be part of Max & Friends soon). Happy holidays all! See you back here in a couple weeks on January 6, 2014…

P.S. Our holiday card from last year.

P.S. Ruby would like to tell you a knock-knock joke…


  1. Some happy holidays wishes from Paris =)
    It is amazing how Ruby is cute.
    I will keep the link to this short video, as I think it will be great to see it again when something goes wrong, to sheer me up.

  2. I can’t believe it’s already Christmas again – my favorite time of the year! And I only have one more semester left until I graduate from Harvard #mindblown I remember being in elementary school and now I’m about to be a ‘real’ adult with (hopefully) a job! Happy holidays to you, too, and I hope the new year brings great things for us both!

  3. Those are beautiful pictures! Thanks for sharing and hope you and your family have a great holiday!
    This year has gone by way too fast. Last year really does feel like yesterday.

  4. These photos are great! Can you tell me where you took the third one down? The one of you all sitting with LA as a backdrop? We are looking for a view like this for an engagement photo! Thanks!

  5. You have such a lovely family, and such a cute little girl! Thank you for sharing photos of your world. It keeps me motivated and inspired all the time. 🙂
    Have a wonderful new years! And a happy 2014.

  6. Seriously how cute are these pictures and Ruby has gotten sooooo big! I always think back of when you announced you were pregnant. Have a wonderful time with your family and see you in January!!!

  7. I have never commented on here before, but I had to after seeing those beautiful photographs. Some very talented photographers! And that red tree – stunning! Happy Holidays with your lovely family.

  8. Joy I love these pics 🙂 Where is your turquoise dress from? And who takes the photographs of the three of you..? Very cute! What great memories you are creating.
    Ps… I just watched your Blog vid with Naomi, thanks so much for being an inspiration to so many 🙂 Sending love and blessings from Australia and wishing you a happy new year!
    Love Nat xx

  9. Hello, Joy! Gray loved the video by Ruby and wants to share a post she just did on WondermintKids. Gray and little friends Archer & Fable (kids of mommy blogger GirlsGoneChild) interviewed the author of Iggy Peck, Architect and Rosie Revere, Engineer, which Gray thinks is a perfect book for Ruby. Thanks for all your advice on our blog—we are having a blast.
    Here’s the link to the post by the kids:
