Welcome to July!
For many of us, we are smack dab in the middle of summer. This is a time for celebrations and fireworks. July 1st marks Canada’s birthday while July 4th is Independence Day in the United States. I’m sure wherever you are in this world, you will be celebrating something this month. Celebrations will continue to be a bit different this year, but the good news is that we are getting there. Life is slowly getting back to normal. This summer our celebrations will hopefully allow for more time with family and friends. Backyard BBQ’s picnics, beach days, camping and road trips may be on your to do list for this month.
It’s been a long year and a bit since we’ve been able to congregate with others. Life will get busier and you may find yourself with less time to focus on your photo of the day. That’s ok. It’s time to reconnect with people. We all know how much we’ve missed the contact. Maybe you can fit the day’s prompt into your activities each day. Maybe not! But, if you can, take that photo. Capture these moments. We’re creating memories and how awesome is it to be able to photograph these special times. Hopefully they’ll make us smile when we look back at them. And who knows, maybe you’ll be capturing history!
Remember to share your memories with us. We love to see how you’re celebrating your month of July. We’ve come to know your families over this past year and we like getting these daily glimpses into your lives. We see your children and grandchildren grow and their smiles and laughter lift us up. We’ve come to know your partners and love their willingness to help you with your daily photos even if it is reluctantly provided. Isn’t it wonderful to get to know so many new people solely through their photos and comments?! Maybe someday soon we’ll once again be afforded the opportunity to meet up for a photo walk. I can’t wait!
Travel is still restricted but we get to learn so much about different places around the world through each other's photos. I know that I have amassed quite the bucket list of places to visit from viewing the photos you have posted. If you’re traveling this summer, share your photos and let us live our travel dreams through you.
Enjoy the celebrations in your life this month. Spend time with your family and friends and make the most of new freedoms as they arise. It’s been a long time coming. Take the photos and capture the memories. Share them and show us how you’re embracing the new normal.
