Happy Monday, everyone! I'm not sure how your week is beginning, but I woke up today feeling extra thankful for Mondays. I know Mondays aren't always the most fun, but as I sat at my kitchen table enjoying a quiet moment before the busyness of the day sat in, I found myself unusually thankful for a new week and a clean slate. Mondays are a chance to worship because we can start anew. I was reminded today that we are offered new mercies with every new week, every new Monday and every new moment. I am so thankful for God's continual grace and His Son who sacrificed Himself on the cross to give us both forgiveness and hope. I'm also joyful today because I get to share with you some of my favorite photos from my session with the Minter family last month. I met Hope and Ben at Mercy Hill Church in Greensboro, and they have a beautiful daughter named Kira Mae. As you'll see below, Kira Mae is the happiest little lady with the world's most adorable baby smile. Hope also does photography, so I was thrilled for the chance for her to get in front of the camera instead of behind it. The Minter's walk with so much grace and integrity, and I really admire their family. If you're in Greensboro, I hope you get a chance to meet them, and if not, I hope you can find as much joy as I did in their little one's captivating smile!
