IN THE MORNING




This is what the average morning consists of at my place; The sunrise, an oversized tee, some ambient/chill radio and most importantly an owl mug or two full of the great morning elixir (which is indeed coffee in spite of my earlier nonsensical ramblings about green tea which was optimistic at best). Combined, these wonderful elements form the perfect way to ease myself into the day. 

 The many wonderful perks about doing what we do for a living is that we get to treat more than two days a week like the weekend...although some weeks we also have to treat the weekend like the week but in my mind that minor tradeoff still trumps a predictable routine in a heartbeat. There is something so rewarding and challenging about the knowledge that you have to just take each and every day as it comes, with little expectation and an open mind. We often talk about how wonderful it is to be able to spend most mornings together soaking in the sunrise with the fireplace lit and the soft sounds of the early morning floating in on the eternally tepid californian breeze. It takes a week of pre-6am starts to fully realise how incredibly lucky we are at this particular moment in time and to remember to be grateful each and everyday to be able to lead the lives we do. 

And as a side note...how awesome is this mug from Bed, Bath and Beyond? A little more kitsch than my usual selection but our pair of owls have become quite a fixture in this place and I couldn't envisage my mornings without them.
