A Few Favorites

Last week I wrote about my love for early mornings. I’m also really fascinated by other people’s morning routines, and recently found this site – it’s so interesting! Another great post about building a morning routine. If you love coffee (like me), here’s the healthiest way to drink it. This shirt + cutoffs have been my […]

Morning Routine

The view from our bedroom balcony. A few years ago, I wrote about my great love of quiet mornings to start my day. Now that we have two little ones who are early risers, having some time to myself before they wake up has become even more important to me. Most mornings I wake up around 5:30am, go […]

Especially now since the Mr’s schedule requires […]

Going Away

It was just over a year ago that the Mr and I began our journey into Navy life. I’ve been thinking lately how thankful I am that his training so far has been a success, and how far along we’ve come. It’s been quite an adventure so far! Before he left for basic training in […]

I am so grateful for all those who have served to protect the freedom we have. I’m looking forward to a lovely long weekend spent with family and friends, eating good food, lounging on a boat, and ooing and ahhing over fireworks. Happy Fourth!

Morning Rituals

I mentioned recently that I love my mornings. There is such a calming joy of having nothing to do when that alarm goes off, except get up and pour a cup of precious coffee. Sit down on the porch. Wake up. Be still. Pray. Read. Birds come alive and the sun begins to peek through […]
