It’s funny – as a school kid, a college kid, a working adult (pretty much my entire life) Monday was always a day to dread. The hectic return to real life after a lazy weekend (sleeping til 10? yes, please!). But as a mom it’s kind of the opposite. Not that I don’t look forward to the weekends, I do. It’s just that the weekends tend to be the crazy part of my week. All sorts of spontaneity and nap-skipping and not a lot of picking up. By the time Sunday night rolls around it’s all I can do to collapse in a heap on the couch after the kids’ bedtime. But Mondays now are always so restful. Pick up the house, open the windows, do some laundry. A fresh start to the orderly and predictable part of our week. Is it weird to love Mondays?
PS – this set includes a vertical shot, I think maybe the first one all year. I find myself only wanting to shoot horizontally because I prefer the way that they look on a screen. The verticals don’t fit as well. How’s that for a silly reason not to shoot vertically? This one shot is a teeny tiny step outside my safe horizontal comfort zone (if Tara can do it on instagram I can do it here)
