I’ve always viewed sunrises as the world waking up and saying, “Good morning!” to me and sunrises as the world saying, “Good night and sleep tight!”
I rejoice at reaching the end of my day – usually a day of chaos, and crave the down time that comes with late evening. And every night I bounce out of bed to see what beautiful sunrise I’ve been graced with on the next day.
I love to wake up in time to see the morning wake up with me. Although I find March and November the hardest months to do this. Waking at 5 am throughout the summer is the best. You’ll often find me out walking in woods enjoying the fresh air and

This last one is my favorite – mostly because of the unique light. This one is after an evening rain.
Isn’t the light stunning?
But not everyone loves early mornings and late nights like I do. So many of us are one or the other.
