Mondays with Mom

Harbor Springs, Michigan

Most of you know that I took Mondays off during the summer to spend some quality time with Yuri and Harper. I documented my Mondays and blogged about them because I felt like I was photographing everyone else’s memories but ignoring my own. I kept up with the picture-taking portion but got quite behind on the blogging.

It may seem silly to see these images from summer when we are still up to our thighs in snow with single-digit temperatures still forecasted for this week but then I thought better of it. Being reminded of warm days spent with my children’s childhood friends who share their toys, play hide-and-seek with fervor, who hike holding hands and who rest on rocks to warm themselves after getting messy with ice cream is what we could all use right now.

(Don’t get me wrong, I love winter but our wood supply is unsustainably low.  I’m asking for drastic measures, Mother Earth.)
