Good Morning

I have always been an early riser. Even on the days I don't have to be at work at 7:30, I'm still usually up by 5:30 a.m. It's my favorite time of the day. Everyone else is asleep except for my dog Lucy who usually gets up with me. This is about the only time the house is completely quiet, which is the way I prefer it. I make a pot of coffee, relax on the sofa, and enjoy my solitude!

Although I don't create weekly scrapbook layouts, I am trying to capture more of our everyday life. Here is a little of my morning routine:

December Recap

If your household is anything like mine, December can be a crazy, busy month! I think it's important among all of the chaos to stop and notice the blessings. So I'm sharing my three favorite blessings from the month of December:

My beautiful mother celebrated her 80th birthday! We actually celebrated in November while I had all of my siblings from out of state here for a visit, but I'm counting it as a December blessing since her birthday is in December.




We received a surprise snowfall in December. A rare occurrence here in Mississippi! Since I'm a school administrator and classes were cancelled, I spent the morning taking photographs.




I always love when my kids (and grand dog) are home, even if it's just for a few days! We had a wonderful time together. I'm so proud of the young adults they have become and truly enjoy their company.
