morning or night?

sometimes i'm asked if i'm a morning person or a night person. and i think do i really have to choose? there are so many things i love about each one. perfect mornings are for sleeping in a bit and snuggling with hubbie. a hot cup of coffee and those first few precious good morning moments with presley are relished. i like the twitter of the birds, the dew on the grass and the hopeful anticipation of a blessed new day.

evening walks to view the gorgeous sunset sky or a bike ride down a rambling country road make night a favorite. the golden glow of a full moon and the starry night sky make me smile. i like to stay up late puttering in the art room or watching a movie. have you ever gone to the dairy queen drive-thru in your pajamas for a chocolate dip cone late at night? we have and i'm not at all ashamed to admit it.

so if you had to choose, could you? which one would you pick and why?

Gorgeous photos! I used to think I was more a morning person...but after reading your post...I think I'm both. I do love waking early and starting the day...but I also love taking walks in the country in the early evening.

Oooh, I like aspects of both times too. I'm definitely a night owl but I also love to get up early too. Nights are truly quiet though and I love to step out on the back deck and see the big dipper right above my head and listen to the tree frogs serenade the moon. There's something magical about nighttime.

I've always been a night time person, and I don't know why. My husband and daughter are so upbeat in the mornings...my son and I are like bears!

Julie...that first photo is INCREDIBLE!! Wow! I want to jump right in it and roll around in the grass...forgetting the hardships in my world on this end....for just a bit of time!

Wishing you a beautiful day! **hugs**

I often try to answer this for myself, everyone seems to be one or the other. But I agree with you... I pick both... must have both!

I'm with you! I love both!

I know what you mean about loving parts of each. I sometimes wish that I didn't need sleep at all! there's so much to see and do, and I want to have the chance to have my cake and eat it too! BUT since I DO require sleep, It's nice to stop and smell the roses once in awhile!
I love your new header photo too by the way.
