A few friends to share on this Saturday afternoon...
Eggs, toast, triple cream brie with wild mushrooms, and an avocado That's how this morning began. Actually, I lied. It began first with this:
Eric and I have quite a bit in common, but I would say that our one major difference is that he prefers to stay up late on Friday nights, and sleep in on Saturday. I prefer to go to bed at a decent time on Friday nights, and get up early on Saturday morning. Actually, "prefer" in my case is misleading because, as I tell Eric when he begs me to try and stay up a little bit later: I do not really have a choice in the matter. My eyelids do what they want to do.
This morning, I woke up at 6:45am, wide awake and the perfect Saturday morning followed. I love waking up early and then crawling back into bed with coffee and a book, or my laptop. When Eric is still asleep, I feel like those are stolen hours. The apartment is so quiet...no wild stomping noises from above, or loud voices below our window...and I get to pretend that this is my life all the time: doing exactly as I please.
It is cold and rainy in D.C. today, and for once we do not have a lot of plans this weekend. I am so thankful for restful weekends. If you have a few moments to relax today, may I recommend a few of my favorite blogger friends to you?
This girl's perspective on life is so beautifully portrayed in her writing and positive outlook. And she is the sweetest, too.
Her's is beautifully done, with pictures she takes herself. She also has a real knack for finding interesting things around the web.
She wants to be a published author, and I have no doubt it will happen one day. Read some of her poetry or short stories to see what I mean.
