The White Rose

Lately I've been struggling with how to include Hayden in our Family Pictures. I know that he's gone but he still very much a part of our Family and I want to be able to look back on pictures and see him as well as Sage and Aurora.

Today, as I was browsing my favorite Blogs I found my answer. The Call Family{CLICK HERE} has started this amazing Tradition, and I've decided to use it as well. From now on every Family Picture will include a single white rose. I am so excited to start this Tradition with this years Christmas Photos.
