There's something calming, refreshing, and inspiring about morning light. What caught my eye the most about our place when we first moved in were the windows that let light flood the room. Lately I've been taking full advantage of these quiet, summer mornings. Oh summertime, I don't want you to ever end.
Photos details and such:
1 & 2. I've been filling my early mornings with a lot of reading lately. I'm currently reading The Circle Maker, and I've really enjoyed it so far. Plus, Josh and I are reading The Love Dare together, a book challenging couples to love one another with the purest intentions. It seems like we spend more time talking about what we've read than the time spent reading; something I've really come to cherish.
3. Our hole-in-the-wall. Literally. I begged my landlord not to patch it until the next people moved in. He so kindly obliged.
4. I've also been, more or less, doing yoga for the past month or so. I've had back pain for as long as I can remember, waking up some mornings and feeling like I can't breathe because it hurts so badly. It's remarkable how much my back has improved since I've started.
5. Eucalyptus Mint is our summer scent.
6. Petrie finally came home a few days back. He's been having a bit of a rough time warming up to us again and breaking his shy streak, but we're working on it.
7 & 8. Josh has been playing daily lately. I truly cherish that I get to hear him play more than anyone does; a selfish streak I'm not afraid to admit.
9, 10, 11, & 12. This morning we took a ride down the street to the Hub, a local coffee + bike shop, because Josh's bike has been acting up lately. We thought we might as well kill two birds with one stone and get our morning coffee fix as well. It was my first time there, and I have to say I was quite impressed. Two mochas and a bike repair for under $20; I can't argue with that.
Also, a big thank you to Kara for introducing her readers to Laura Gibson. I haven't been able to stop listening to her since.
