Good Morning Monday + A Picnic & Playfulness





Good Morning Monday & Hello New Week!

The last Monday of April 2014! In another two days, we’ll be waltzing into May – but hey, be sure to dance your way into the new month because April 29 is World Dance Day.

This past week was both frenetic and fun. Like two sides of the same coin, we did both – worked and waded through the heavy summer days, and made time to enjoy ourselves and infuse some joy into our life.
Yesterday, we went for our first family picnic at a nearby park. We spread out an old bed sheet, tucked into treats, lolled around in the lap of nature and had a good time.

Talking about picnics, I went to one after ages (what about you? When was your last picnic?)! We’ve dreamt about doing more of these several times, but always chicken out for a quickly devoured breakfast on the couch. But just doing a simple thing like this – a picnic at the nearest park, made me realize how we can take a regular day and turn it into something special with just a basket, a rug/old bed sheet, some eats and a bag full of childlike delight.

And hey, we also took a bunch of photographs while we were there. Well not ‘we’, but my husband S. He can weave magic with the camera. In fact, learning to snap the everyday life and capture the joy in the regular is on my ‘To-Learn Wish List’. To turn this wish into more than a mere desire, I’m enrolling in this week-long online photography workshop by Beryl Young for wannabe mom photographers. It’s totally FREE! 

Check it out here and see if you want to join me to kick start your ‘career’ as a Mom Photographer.

How are you planning to add play into your week?
