New dawn.

I woke up this morning extra early – given the time change yesterday.  This was the glorious sunrise sky that lay right out side the front door.  I was prompted to go out and take a look when i noticed that the light coming in through the windows was making the entire inside of the house glow pink.

And, what is that sparkle on the horizon?  Could it be something new coming my way….?

My time.

By morning's light.
By morning’s light.

I am up most mornings very early.  I like to sit down and drink my coffee while tending to my email, blogging, pinning, etc, before the day’s grind begins.  Monte gave me this antique candle holder for Christmas.  It sits next to my morning chair now.  I love the glow of candlelight…

Christmas Eve-eve!

We're ready!
We’re ready!

I was up early this morning padding around the house.  We usually leave the little white Christmas lights on at night.   I have always loved to stare at the glow of Christmas lights at night.

I remember doing that when I was a kid.  We always had an artificial tree.  The same one that we took with us every time we moved.  With the big glass bulb colored lights.  You know… the kind that would burn your finger if you touched them after having been lit for an hour or so.  It’s amazing more homes didn’t burn down back then.

I remember sitting watching the tree lights that decorated my little trees over the years in my dorm or apartment.  Somehow I remember those trees being extra pretty during my “on my own” college years.

This morning as I walked down the hall I stopped to admire this year’s glow.  So pretty.  I just had to snap a shot, too.
