Christmas presents from the past

One of my absolute favorite toys I received for Christmas from ‘santa’. Fisher Price circus train. My vintage collection of toys and decor is pretty eclectic and I love it. I love elephants as well. But of course not in a circus but rather in Africa. I suppose one day I should go on an African safari to just shoot animals. With a camera. The image above is my dad and I. Playing on the shag carpet with Christmas toys. I’m thankful my mom took this. I’m thankful she was always there to document our lives growing up both in USA and Norway. I miss my dad. So many people close to me are gone. But still, never forgotten. These photos make my happy. I hold on to those memories and continue to document my everyday life of people and animals and then the stuff. 
New Years word of the year is ‘create’. Someone said it and I feel it too. Keep creating. What makes you happy. What gets you up in the morning. Life move fast. If you don’t stop to look around, you might miss it. Love that.
