Boy, I think I really love you guys.

I mean, I did something that is totally out of character for me because of you guys.

Here, let me take you back to last Friday morning…


My little kitchen was warm, cozy and filled with delicious aromas.

I was happily singing along to my favorite Christmas CD while putting the finishing touches on my breakfast.

Then I happened to glance out the kitchen window and was suddenly transfixed.

“Oh my,” I murmured to myself, “How breathtaking!”

The morning sun was rising amidst a blue sky and beautiful white clouds.

This is just too gorgeous not to share! I thought to myself.

And that’s when I proved my love for you.

Not only did I leave my warm, cozy kitchen and untouched breakfast to go out into the cold winter morning, I did so wearing my fluffy purple robe.

Holy smokes!

Spontaneity before eating breakfast and venturing outside my house in my robe? Totally not me.

(Telling someone I even own a fluffy purple robe? Totally, totally not me).

And it gets even better…

I stood up on top of our deck benches (in possible view of my neighbors!) to take pictures for you.

And strangely, I was totally okay with doing this. Like it was completely natural and part of my morning routine.

I snapped some shots and soon realized you deserved better than the benches could afford.

So, I quickly climbed down from the benches, went back inside, grabbed a step ladder and hauled it to the very back of our yard.

Then I climbed up (still in my fluffy purple robe) to take more pictures for you.

Honestly, this not something I make a habit of.

It just kind of happened.

But you know what?

I really, really enjoyed myself.

The crisp cool air. The beautiful sky.

Mmmm, what a glorious way to start my day!

So, thanks for making me love you so I had a reason to do it. :)
