The time change came and all our clocks slid back one hour, and sunrise is a bit earlier.

But I took these photos before the time change, so that the sunrise was just around the time my husband was leaving for work, so I nipped outside in my fluffy pink slippers to snap a couple of pictures for you.

I love this time of morning, when the sky is all rosy, and people are bustling about to start their days. The air was warm–a few degrees above freezing, and no wind to speak of. There is just something about that ten minute window of golden pink light that makes my heart happy.

Then I went back inside to start my day… books to write, manuscripts to edit, my son doing his online school, and a sink full of dishes waiting on me. (The new dishwasher hadn’t been delivered and set up yet.)

That is what my life looks like, and I really am happy. It’s simple, but it’s full of all the best things in life. I don’t know how to put into words how grateful I am for the family God gave me and this ridiculously lucky turn of events that lets me write books day in and day out!

Go breathe in that ten minutes when the sun comes up, and try not to feel grateful! ❤

Don’t forget about my newest release hitting the shelves any day now!
