Early morning pleasures

The back-to-school routine has kicked in, breakfasts are bright and early and the futile herding of errant, forgetful and procrastinating boys towards the back door for a timely exit to school is once more in play.

When the mornings turn dark and frosty, this merry daily dance will be painful, but this morning, we stopped and stared a while and enjoyed the warm sun before everyone trooped off to their various classrooms and desks with a hop, skip and a jump.

1. We greeted the morning sunlight in the bathroom with a smile

2. Louis found a snail and named him Nikapoo

3. My new Zooey butterfly necklace from here works nicely with my dress

4. I daydreamed a bit about waking up to this bedlinen. It’s from here
