And so begins Dave's fifteenth holiday season with Williams-Sonoma. What began as a seasonal job for him during our Senior year of college turned into a regular part time job and has lasted ever since. There was a period of time where this served as his full time job (though that period of time was short lived due to him passing his Physical Therapy licencing exam back in the day). For our entire marriage it has been his regular part time gig. His hours increase during the holiday season (of course) and it's then that I become a "Williams-Sonoma widow". The girls have grown up in this store and refer to the mall that it's in as "Daddy's mall". I absolutely love this picture of the "Williams-Sonoma babies" hanging out at Williams-Sonoma while their Papa chats about the day and "the just beginning holiday season". It's another little glimpse into our lives at holiday time and it really is captured perfectly here.
