Simple Pleasure of the Week: Morning

I know some people are going to be reading this thinking "screw mornings, I'm a night owl", but for me, mornings are the best. I love the quiet of morning, the way the air smells outside, the still energy that still lingers as the world is just waking up. I love the dispersed light outside, leftover from sunrise, and the fact that the entire day lays ahead of you, full of possibility. I love the culture of morning: pajamas, coffee, pancakes, newspapers, etc. I love the sounds of morning. My husband and I even shifted our daily schedule to include more mornings, going to bed an hour earlier and waking 1/2 hour earlier. With the weekend coming up, there's plenty of morning to go around, and plenty of opportunity to soak up this simple pleasure. Happy Weekend!
