I have never been a morning person. I am all about self-care and sleep is one important element of that. But, over the last few years, as I get older and my schedule gets more hectic, I have found myself waking up earlier and earlier. I wake up at least one hour before I really need to so I can sit in the silence of my home before the chaos of morning routines with a middle schooler begins.
Today I am flying out to start my #TOPStudyTour and my body woke up at its usual 5am. Now I sit here in the quiet of the morning hours, snuggling cats and my coffee, catching up on emails, and finishing last minute chores around the house.
There is a lot of peace to be found in the hush of the early morning hours.
