I’ve never been a morning person. I love love love sleeping in! My husband is the exact opposite. He feels the morning is the best time of the day and can’t sleep in. Most of his family is like that too. Whenever we stay the night at my in-laws I’m usually the last one up!
It’s been even harder to get up at a decent time lately now that my baby keeps waking up in the middle of the night (the pediatrician thinks she’s teething and I think she’s having some tummy troubles too). My husband has encouraged me to get up earlier so I can get my day started. And I really do feel better when I get up earlier and start my day. “Early to bed, early to rise, makes a [woman] healthy, wealthy, and wise,” right? My daughter has been getting up anytime between 6 and 7 every morning and that’s just a little on the early side.
But today I did it! After my hubby left for work I laid in my bed with my baby for a little bit and then decided to go on a walk to our garden. Our garden is located at our church building and is only about a 20 minute walk. I was out the door and walking at 7:55am. And let me tell you, it was a beautiful morning!
And we even got some squash and a few baby tomatoes. Was it worth it? Oh yes!
Are you a morning person? How early do you usually get up?
