Now, thanks in part to the baby and job, the idea of sleeping until 7 a.m. is blissful and staying up past 10 is risky.
I've quickly come to love being a morning person - the quiet and the calm of being up before the rest of the house and the joy of being able to finish errands before most people are out of the shower.
This morning, as calm and quiet as it is, has a long to do list. The house needs tidying up and the larder is getting quite bare (meal planning, ho!) and there's quality time to be spent with family and some cuddles to be had. All in all shaping up to be a good morning, even if it's finally looking like winter outside.
Dexter and Gustaf, only some of the few decorations left by the previous owner, are quite the troopers!
