For the people who never see the morning.

I would rather wake up at 4am, than stay up until 4am.
Early mornings are my favorite part of the day.

The way the sun shines.
The quiet. The stillness.
The whole day is ahead of you.

In the wee hours of Sunday morning, we were on a mission {more on that another day...}
Tourist-y yes, but Navy Pier is absolutely gorgeous in the morning.
The sun rising over the lake covering the buildings with glittery sunshine.
Everything sparkles.

I love listening to the city in the morning. {whether on the pier or not...}
There is so much to hear when traffic is non-existent and the city is still asleep.

My sister Stephanie and Maggie  ...a friend who is basically family.
Thanks for hanging out with us and showing us your adorable home that I want to live in.

Frankie in his shark shoes eating MY biscoff donut!!!
The one I dreamed of for daaaaays!!!  The one I couldn't replace.
Sigh....The things we sacrifice for our children.

Hope your Monday is off to a great start.


  1. I agree, as I get older, I have really started to love the mornings...especially saturdays and sundays ;) It's a great feeling to start your day by talking a walk or enjoying your coffee on the couch with some peace and quiet. Though with a baby on the way, I'm thinking I should really cherish those moments now ;)

    1. Yes! My children have always been early risers. {until they hit their teen years..Ha!}
      So my mornings usually consist of coffee and Frankie. ;)
      You are going to love being a mom...I am so excited for you!
