Here they are, the very first of our New York photos! It wasn’t the warmest of stays where the weather was concerned, but our quiet little B&B in Williamsburg made for such a peaceful stay that we didn’t mind one bit!

There’s something about mornings, no matter where you are, that set the tone for the whole day. For me, I like to take things reaaaaaal slow, enjoy a cup of black coffee, and not think about too much. I love the quiet sounds of people starting to get up and move around, of cars driving on wet pavement, and even the occasional shout of mothers yelling at their children.

To simply feel everything that a morning is, well that is one of my favourite things in the whole world. I love opening the windows and letting the crisp air come billowing in…even if it’s maybe a tad too chilly, with a hot cup in hand and a cozy sweater, there’s not much better. The ritual of a morning routine is such an important one and I feel so fortunate to be able to take the time to really embrace the stillness before I get on with my day.

I can’t wait for the warmer weather to come around, to be able to take long walks down to the river here in Calgary (and not have to bundle up). I love the sound of the moving water, sitting on the rocks and drinking my coffee. No matter where you are, there is always something soothing to find in a morning…what makes yours special?

    You’ve described such cozy sentiments :). I miss my pre-baby mornings that were literally a two hour ritual including exercise, a proper sit down breakfast, and planning the day out with pencil and paper. Hopefully I can regain some of these rituals as Levi grows… but then Levi will be grown and I’ll miss these crazy times! Haha!
