A Note From Lain

My husband and I grew up in very different times, in very different families. But one thing that connects both of our families across the years was our mothers’ traditions of baking tons of cookies at Christmas. I have continued that tradition with my own family, and I wanted to create a layout that commemorated how we “used to” do things, and how we do them now. I didn’t have photos of my own childhood or my husband’s, but the big picture of my son says it all!
