Morning came and I wasn’t quite ready for it. I hit snooze for the second time [that is a lie, i hit it 4x. gasp.], pulled the covers up a little bit higher. It’s been chilly here in Minneapolis ~ every morning I look upward and raise my eyebrows. He must have noticed *wink* because this morning we woke to blue skies and the promise of 60 degree weather.
[Yesterday it was 33 degrees…]
Bauer’s not allowed on our bed to sleep, but each morning around 5 I wake to find him curled in a little ball at my feet. I think it’s cute; Zack rolls his eyes, turns over, and — he doesn’t know it — but I see the little smirk he writes on his face. Hah!
So with the blue skies outside, and the morning ticking away, we get up. Zack makes coffee. Bauer stretches for us and walks around the house with some extra pep in his step. It’s very cute :]
Today I’m thankful for: the birds chirping ~ the front door open and the little doggy that is now tall enough to see out the screen ~ this blog and The Beatles on her play list ~ for a little bit of pink [see below] that my mom read I was needing [xxoo, mom] ~ for the lunch date with my friend Jill!!! ~ for the orders waiting to be packaged, new fabric that’s on it’s way to me, for Lisa & Anna who help me with my ruffles. I most definitely can’t do this alone and I’m so, so super thankful for the help.
