Week in the Life 2013: Monday

September 10, 2013 Sarah Coggins

Another round of Ali Edwards’s Week in the Life has begun. It started yesterday, but if you missed it, you can join in at any point. Truly this is a very flexible, personal memory keeping adventure which is part of the reason I enjoy it.

You don’t have to be a scrapbooker to do this. I made a photo book last spring after attempting to participate a couple times in the past (who knows, maybe I’ll finish one of those books too someday). Thumbing through the 2012 book and photos from 2010, it’s interesting to see how much life has changed and stayed the same.

Be prepared. This will be the first of 7 days of straight blog posting, but I plan to be less wordy in the rest of the posts. 🙂

Here’s a brief look at our Monday with a mix of iPhone and point & shoot photos (yep, I didn’t touch the DSLR once – that’s just the way it goes sometimes)

    Girl you not only need photos on your office wall, you need some color! Love that Dyan figured out the timer so quickly. It took me at least an hour the first time and I have to review it every time for about 3-4 takes!

    Looks like a busy but productive day :)

    I highly recommend the book What Was Lost: A Christian Journey through Miscarriage for any woman of faith who has suffered a miscarriage or anyone wanting to gain insight to help comfort a spouse, friend, sister, daughter, etc.
