Today is my daughter’s 19th birthday.

She is away at college so for the first time ever, I cannot be with her on her birthday, though I did get to see her yesterday.

In celebration of her beautiful spirit and heart, I went on the playground today at work and photographed some of the children.  I then went to the church that is next door to our school to photograph a drumming circle there that some of our 4th grade students were participating in.

The church is over 100 years old, small, and lovely.  I love photographing old churches.  There is a mystery to them that captivates me.

Happy birthday, Emma.  I love you dearly. xo

This afternoon, Nick and I went to Swannanoa to pick up Emma and Olivia, then went to Monroe for Thanksgiving.  It was a lot of driving, but a beautiful day. The clouds were spectacular, and there was still a bit of color left on the trees…
