The morning sun

This morning felt like a dream.

The sun streamed through my window earlier than usual and my room slowly grew brighter with each minute that went by. I didn't need my alarm this morning, the sun was enough to wake me. It's warmth swam over me and for a moment I thought it was summer.

For the first time in the last few months, I didn't have to turn on the heater as soon as I jumped out of the shower. For the first time in a while, I slipped on a dress that didn't have any sleeves. If it weren't for my horribly unshaven legs, I wouldn't have worn stockings either.

Summer is coming. I can feel it.

This past weekend was spent doing a whole lot of nothing. Afternoon naps, blog reading and DVD watching were everywhere to be found and Stephen and I didn't care one bit. I'm realising I don't have to be doing something exciting every minute of my life. Sometimes just sitting and resting is all I ever need in a particular moment.

With a busy week ahead of me, I am grateful I spent my weekend relaxing. I am grateful for having the opportunity to sleep in and lounge around in pants that have way too many holes in them and socks that can barely be considered socks. I am grateful for the morning sun that awoke me this morning. It was a good start, to a hopefully good week.

How did you spend your weekend?


  1. You have captured light so beautifully in these. I am feeling inspired to wake up with the sun now! Lately I have been guilty of sleeping in to an absolutely indecent hour.

  2. We spent this past weekend soaking up our last summer. I'm so jealous you are just beginning yours... and in Australia! Must be amazing! Great blog, beautiful pictures!

  3. Haha, unshaven legs, aMEN. It's not even Fall here yet, and I've already let mine go. It's just SUCH a large area to shave! Also, it trips me out that it's Spring there...every time I read here, I have to remind myself that you're opposite what we are in America. I like it though, the different perspective. Lazy weekends are truly the best.

    1. I shaved my legs on Monday and I forgot how liberating it is. Hello summer!

  4. I love that as your summer is beginning, mine is coming to an end (although, mine has been hanging on a little because I've still got late summer temps!). I also love these photos. The fence shadows, the spiderwebs, the dew on the grass? You captured mornings perfectly. I've been rather busy in the mornings now that I'm back at work and this post just reminded me to really soak in the little moments--crazy mornings included. :)

  5. I love that it's almost summer. :)

  6. Great blog!
