good morning by kristin~mainemomma
good morning, a photo by kristin~mainemomma on Flickr.

a week ago i began a new morning routine.
now we sleep in a few minutes longer each morning. we wake, get dressed, eat breakfast, then i gather my littles and drive them to school. no more morning school buses. this allows us an extra 15 - 20 mins at home each morning. that may sound insignificant, but it feels huge. after school drop offs, i take the longer way home and stop at the beach. each time a different spot. some mornings i take a long walk, other mornings i just pause for a few minutes and take in the salt air. the winter beach here is almost always empty, just me, the seagulls and the pigeons. some days the wind takes my breath away and makes my eyes water. some days i forget my mittens and instantly regret this. but mittens or not, our mornings seem less rushed, more peaceful, and i feel so much more grounded. i hope my littles feel it too.
