I SPY INSIDER | My Mornings


Life in my new apartment has been filled with all sorts of firsts. It is the first time I’ve lived alone, the first time to decorate a home from scratch (one plus of small NY apts is that you don’t need too much to fill it up), the first time that I am the only person to blame for an unwashed mug in the sink… it’s also the first time I have been able to settle into a daily morning routine since starting freelancing, and the first time that (even as a late late nightowl) my new A.M. practices have made my mornings quite delightful.  My day starts with an alarm, quickly followed by a snooze button (once…or 5 times) then I head straight to the windows, open my curtains wide, then turn on some tunes. The day does not officially start till my Keurig brews a cup of jo and my “power” cup is at full charge.  I have to admit, instead of heading to my desk, I plop down on my queen-sized cloud bed, and go through emails and tasks on my HP Envy laptop. This hour is quickly becoming one of my favorites, coffee in hand, I plot out my day and prepare my posts for the upcoming days. After one cup of coffee (ok, maybe 3) I put the day’s plan into action, well-caffeinated!

    I can just relate to that as I once lived alone too when I was in college. Anyway, I love the cloud bed you are talking about. Seeing your bed makes me want to go back to sleep. I love beds too. But most of all I love coffee which made me realize just now that I need to make my coffee already. I just wish I have a mug like yours. 😉 Cool post!
