Hello everyone! Long time no see :)
We have some very early mornings as our daughter has some 8 am classes. So that means she has to leave at 7 am for her drive into Atlanta, which means we’re up before the crack of dawn. Let me just say…we are not early morning people - dog included!
On those mornings my husband and I enjoy our coffee by candlelight. It’s a gentle way of waking up on those "it's waaaay too early I should still be sleeping" days! We don't like to rush in the mornings. I once worked with a woman who made time to take a bath every morning. She'd have her coffee in the tub - I always thought that was so great that she would start her day in such a relaxing way!
I know a lot of people don’t like to burn their “pretty” candles but I don’t have that problem. Use and enjoy what you have is my philosophy because otherwise what's the point of having nice things.
I really love finding unusual candles to mix in with my regular ones. I buy them here and there, now and then. I'm not one to go out and just buy a whole set/collection of anything. To me that takes all the fun out of shopping!
I also took all our throws out of storage (ottoman with a lid in the living room). I like to have them handy so you can throw one over your lap if you want one.
It’s pretty cozy on those early mornings with the candles flickering, a throw on my lap and hot cup of coffee in my hand. Makes getting up in the dark almost bearable!
