the morning blue hour

Wednesday, October 22, 2014

This morning my alarm went off, and went off, and I kept turning it off, pressing snooze, and sinking back into bed. Steele got up to take a shower and I wrapped all of the blankets around me and fell back into 5 minute stretches of sleep while the alarm blared. 

The days are getting shorter and the mornings are getting darker. The pre-dawn light coming in our bedroom windows turns everything a pale blue. It's the morning blue hour. I think it's even more delicious than the evening blue hour. 

I have a problem getting up in the morning. But it's hard to feel guilty about it when my bed is soft and cool, and Steele has turned on the heat and the hot air is blowing around, and the pale blue dawn light is coming through the curtains. 

It's hard to feel guilty about that. 


  1. Oh I remember dreading this time of year when I lived in Seattle. In NY it is not so bad, it gets a lot colder but there is a lot more light. I LOVE that fist photo, just beautiful.

    1. Funny, I love it! I guess that means we're both in the right places.

      Thank you! :)
