I had this post in the queue, and figured today would be the perfect day to post it. It's my birthday, but you get the goodies!
For a couple weeks during the end of September and beginning of October, our church had a series called PLAY. Here was the gist of the series:
Everyone is designed to work hard, but in the name of working harder, achieving more, and getting ahead, we can be tempted to completely squeeze valuable times of rest and recreation out of our lives. Without those times our lives can lack rhythm and leave us less effective. Join us as we learn how to play.
After an incredibly busy summer and September, this series came at the best possible time. Dan and I were inspired and motivated to make time for rest and recreation, and to make it a weekly practice. In the last message of the series, about discovering joy through play, we were told to pursue joy relentlessly. This line really spoke to me through my crazy, scattered brain, and I wanted to post it somewhere I would always see. If you like it, feel free to post it where you'll see it, too.

Compared to the fall, things have certainly slowed down for us in photography land. It's a welcome change, and time that we're taking to recharge our batteries a little. While we're busy with other things, I wanted to show the fun gifts that we gave to some of our 2009 clients.
First up: photo calendars. We chose a favorite image from each session and paired them with color-coordinated 2010 calendars.
Each calendar was printed and then mounted on foam board.
