truth be told, i'm not much for extensive bed lounging in the morning. don't get me wrong - i prefer to wake up on my own terms (which usually involves no alarm clock, a well risen sun and some serious blink-awake time). it's just that in the past six years i've taken up hobbies, and worked at jobs that make me excited to start the day. in that i feel lucky.
being on mat leave for six months of my pregnancy was unique, and also awesome. i think of that time fondly. waking with the sun on my face and whole days stretching ahead of me to create whatever i wanted.
