Is that Bright Eyes song stuck in your head now? Good, me too. I may complain from time to time about getting up super early for the puppy, but I have to say it's made me really slow down my mornings. On a normal day, pre-puppy, I would probably rush around like maniac and not even head outside until I was on my way to the car with my coffee, laptop bag, purse, etc. Now I'm up early (well, Tim and I alternate) and head outside with the pup to see pretty skies like these. Not too shabby. Makes the early wakeup seem pretty worthwhile.
And then there's sunset walks. Normally I would be checking my phone (bad habit, I know!), but thanks to a puppy who needs constant direction I am pretty focused on our walks. I took this picture at the park tonight. It's pretty rare when I take an instagram and don't use filters. Plus we're meeting lots of other nice dogwalkers around town and getting the scoop on local parks. It's nice to be in the dog owner's club now.
Without this guy, these pictures might not have happened. I'm not totally oblivious to sunsets, but in the past I wouldn't have been at the park on a Friday night :)
I just finished baking some chocolate chip pumpkin bread, SO good! I found the recipe here. My mom, sister, and niece are coming over tomorrow for pumpkin bread and coffee, then off to do some shopping. Should be a fun day. Happy Weekend to you!
