Good Morning!

early morning sunlight...

A gorgeous sunrise peeking through the windows - after a long three weeks full of
gray, cloudy, rainy skies, sunshine is most welcome.

zinnias in morning's first light...

The last of summer's zinnias
awakening in the early morning light.

our first eggs from our spring chickens :)

The first eggs collected from our spring chickens.

pumpkin butter

Last year's pumpkin butter to make me
remember the taste of good.


Breakfast of fresh hash-browns and eggs with fresh bread from the market
spread with pumpkin butter.

now, on with our day...

Now just a few leftover tidbits to clean, school to get in motion,
and the perfect daily routine to follow.

I love mornings, the peace and quiet, the coolness, the gradual shift of beautiful light as the sun rises, the possibility that lies ahead of us as everything is fresh and new again. I'm so glad we get to do this every day.

Hope your morning is beautiful!


I love the sweet smell of dawn -
our unique daily opportunity to smell time,
to smell opportunity -
each morning being, a new beginning.

Oh wow. Mornings are so rough for me. Maybe it will get easier as the kids get older (6y,4y,3y,1y now). Great pictures as always and a wonderful reminder that maybe I need to shift my perspective around a bit. I'll try first thing tomorrow morning. ;)
