|Saturday Sunrise Selfie|
Saturday is the ONE day a week that the LOML & I might get a chance to sleep in. And, it's pretty much the only day each week we have a chance to actually relax together as we have our morning coffee. A lot of Saturdays aren't like that with firm plans already made for the beginning of the day.
But today... we'd decided to take a slower start to the day. We knew the rest of the day would be full of hard, physical work - possibly going into the evening. The weather is changing and, there's a lot to be done on the property before winter!
However... there's that #write31days thing happening.
And, being the over-achiever I am... I really wanted to get a few sunrise shots to share. I threw a hoodie & sweat pants on over my pj's and ran out to the back 40 to catch some sunrise shots. It was so cold out that the hood came up almost immediately. Unfortunately, I could tell that if I wanted to get the "prettiest" pictures I'd be out there for quite awhile. Grrrrr!
I thought for a few moments & made a judgement call. I took 4-5 shots and ran back inside to the warmth. I took the outside clothes off & crawled back under the cozy blankets beside the LOML to wait for morning coffee. There will be other days to linger outside as the sunrise changes & becomes more vibrant.
And seriously... when you get a chance to spend some quality time with a loved one... you should take it!
There's an Ann Voskamp quote that I really like about priorities:
PRESENCE makes your life into a greater gift than PRODUCTIVITY.
