Early Morning Wake-ups.

I mentioned before that the past several weeks I’ve been waking early. Like 3 a.m. early! Its been crazy, but with both the kiddos home and a pending move upon us, I really felt it was the only option to get quality work done. I didn’t think I could do it at first, but I started making myself go to sleep and then rewarding myself with the perfect latte in the morning made with espresso from a local little indie roaster and I actually started looking forward to these quiet mornings.

I’ve had a number of photography & design projects that I’m completing. Along with closing down the shirt shop for now…its been busy. This week, however I am waking at 4 a.m. (sleeping in an extra hour) annnnd I’m back to blogging. I have things to share that is going on with our family! Some big news I want to make sure I keep record of. I’m not taking any more design work on or possibly printing again until mid November, early December. When that point comes, I’ll re-evaluate. I am going to start sharing photoshop actions again (I’ve made a few new favorites that I really love, and have been using them in all of my editing, its so fun).


This month when I flipped the calendar page I saw the word “Prepare”. How perfect, as this is the theme of our month. We were preparing without any knowledge of where we were moving, what we are doing which impacted so much! School for the kids, housing, and a lot of other things were up in the air. We now have more insight into all of that which is helping us to move forward with some of the still unknowns. Its all been sorta flying by the seat of our pants with lots of talks together.

Stay tuned as I share more about where we are moving and what we are doing… we are on a new path, an exciting adventure!

  1. so excited to hear your news! and, that coffee photo makes me want to wake up early and come to your house for a latte. wouldn’t that be fun :) {even if it was at a ridiculously early hour!}

  2. Hi Erin! Wow. I am super impressed with your ability to get up so early. What time to go to bed??? I’ve started to get up at 5:30 since the kids start school so early and I do love the quiet before anyone else is up. But 3-4 am! Whew. Looking forward to hearing about your new direction, updates, and watching your creativity flow!

  3. Sounds interesting. I am the other way around and stay up late to work, maybe I should get my courage together and try to switch it around to see if the early mornings work better. Coffee would certainly be a benefit!

    Sounds like your next move will be exciting!
