A Note from Emily
I wanted to take a slightly different approach to this month’s gallery. Instead of shooting photos of my day, I thought about some of the things I do that are exactly the same every day. The first thing that came to mind is the first thing we do at 5:30 in the morning. Everyone tumbles out of bed, we gather in the loft and kneel for family prayer. And before we head to bed at the end of the day, we do the same thing. As my kids have gotten older and the demands on their time have increased, these few minutes in our day have become very precious to me. I wanted to capture that in a layout, and this month’s topic was perfect for doing that.
May Fun Fact
We have lived in Colorado now for 6 years. One thing I love about this state is the extensive trails system, and I have explored most of them that surround my house. But today I found one within a half mile of home that I’ve never noticed before. I like finding little surprises like that. It makes me happy.
