good morning!

This morning I was able to sleep in a little tiny bit and it was amazing :)
I realized that there are sooo many things that I love about "morning."
I thought I would share them with you :)
1. My mom always told me that everything will always be better in the morning.
It is always a fresh start :) I love that feeling.

2. The light.
Our bedroom has a big window with no shade and no blinds. We have a very sheer white curtain that hangs over it. It is purely for look, not for blocking out the light. I love the light. I love waking up to the sun streaming through window an falling all over the bedroom. love love love it.

3. cuddling :)
I will first preface that by saying I really am not the world's biggest fan of cuddling. I absolutely looove snuggling up to Adam in the morning while he's still sleeping. I love love love it. I also love snuggling with Catalina in the morning and seeing her cuteness sleep.

4. pancakes.
On any normal day, I grab my fiber one bar and walk out the door. Im definitely not a breakfast person. Lunch is my favorite meal for sure :) BUT...I would do anything for a stack of pancakes!! If I had more time in the mornings, I would eat pancakes every single day.

5. blog reading
The morning is my time to catch up on all of my blog reading. I either lay in bed with my laptop and read or I read them while blow drying my hair :)
I feel it's a great way to start my day with all of that inspiration.

What is your favorite thing about morning?
Do you have any morning routine or rituals?
Have an blessed Saturday friends.


  1. Love this Janel! During the week, it is usually full of chaos trying to get 2 kids ready for school and a baby her bottle and me looking just a little bit decent, then I check out what going on in the blog world.
    On the weekends, Gabe and I wake up and make either pancakes or muffins for the kids, drink some coffee and watch a movie. I know that sounds silly, but that's how we role! Have a wonderful day!

  2. good morning baby girl...i wish my morning were this "special".


  3. This morning was extra special. I woke up to a pair of ducks in my pool. I don't mind - I know they won't stay. So I will appriciate them and and my DH for the wonderful breakfast he is helping to make.

  4. my fav fun fact of the day: janel loves pancakes!!! ugh, i love you so much!!!!!! xxo

  5. i love your passion. that's what i love.

  6. I love to grab a cup of something warm (either tea, coffee, etc.) and then go to my favorite place on the couch and read my Bible and pray.....makes my day so much better when I first spend a little time with the Creator!

  7. what a fun post! I love mornings too! Especially this last week... my husband was out of town helping his mom so I took the week off work to be with the kids. We also have a big window with no blinds or curtains (no rear neighbors and upstairs), and we have this big tree that sways in the wind. I love it. Also, while I don't love rushing out the door to take my oldest daughter to school, I do love that we get to see several hot air balloons in the sky each morning during that drive (Napa Valley). So pretty! Also my morning coffee and quiet time.

    This week I'll be back to work, making coffee for our loyal customers (I actually missed them this week!)... I get up, shower and out the door hours before it's light out.

    His mercies are new every morning!

    (probably the longest blog comment I've ever left!)

    p.s. I can't wait to hear about your party! xoxo

  8. How nice! I actually love waking up and knowing it's a new day! Lovely :)
