I’ve never been a morning person, but motherhood is slowly turning me into one. I still love to sleep in, but the early wake up call from baby Knox has made me crave a morning routine. I secretly love opening the blinds in the morning and looking out on the sunrise. Finding beauty in the new mercies that I’m granted, in the new day that I get to live, in the landscape and sunrise that surrounds me…it’s a beautiful thing.
I nurse Knox around 7-8 am, depending on what time he wakes up, while reading my She Reads Truth plan. As much as I’d love to wake up earlier and journal before He wakes up and actually read from the Bible, rather than a Bible app – it’s just where I’m at right now and I’ll take that daily bread however I can get it.
I love to get dressed right after Knox gets his breakfast, but that rarely happens. When it does, I feel I can accomplish so much more. I put Knox down to play while I make coffee and usually throw some clothes on while it’s brewing. I try to do something with my bed-head.
If Knox eats before 8, he usually is ready to go back down for a morning nap so I can watch Kelly & Michael and sip my coffee. I love that part of my morning..it gets super quiet and still and then I turn on the tv with the volume super low. I answer some emails and do some random blog work during the commercial breaks…also planning my day in to-do list form.
Basically, my mornings are spent trying to figure out how to be a mom, how to be a disciple of Jesus, how to run a business + a household, and how to drink my cup of coffee without having to reheat it three times.
Before I know it, it’s 11 am and Knox is ready to eat again and then..bam. It’s lunch time and the afternoon is ready to be taken on.
My favorite mug to sip from is this latte mug from NS Pottery. It’s HUGE, so I’m able to fill ‘er up and sip away…and who doesn’t love a little humor in their day? This spoon from JessicaNDesigns makes me giggle every time I stir my creamer into my coffee. Too Legit to Quit ((Hey Heyyyyyyy!)). I also can’t wait to hug these girls at Influence SO soon!
What’s your favorite moment in your morning routine?
