Monday Morning Inspiration: From Because It's Awesome

good morning, all! tobe here from because it's awesome, super honored to be visiting sam and all of you for a little monday morning inspiration. i have to say that because it is always so go, go, go around here, i feel like my days tend to blur together. so monday doesn't really get any kind of special treatment. that said, i love that sam asked me to participate in her series, because it really made me sit down and think about what an ideal monday might look like in my world. probably something like this:

admittedly, i have a hard time working a fitness routine into my schedule. while i would be happy with 2-3 days per week, i tend to be a creature of habit, so it would have to be an all or nothing thing during the work week. i would love to start my mornings just before sun up while it feels like the city is still sleeping for a good run or yoga session.



once i've gotten my metabolism in high gear, it would be a dream to spend my cool down time with a cup of freshly brewed coffee and some breakfast (oatmeal with slivered almonds and a pinch of brown sugar for me, please), pouring over the morning's paper (online, of course), visiting my favorite blogs or, on warmer mornings, sitting on the back patio for a few minutes of solace before starting the day.



i'm lucky to take one of the city's most beautiful roads to work every morning, so i wouldn't change a thing about my morning commute! unless it were the luxury of a chauffeur so i could enjoy the view that much more :)

nothing better on a monday than running out for lunch with a friend . . .  and maybe a little light shopping?

after wrapping up an inevitably productive day (this is an ideal monday, right?), i can't help but turn my focus to the house, which my husband and i moved into six short months ago. decorating has been a sloooow process with such a busy schedule, so the idea of stopping by some of my favorite antique and home decor shops on the way home is a definite must!

while i can't say that i have taken much joy in cooking in the past, i'm warming up to the idea more and more (thanks, pinterest!). having the time to prepare a healthy meal over a glass of my favorite wine doesn't sound too shabby to get the perfect monday evening started!


afterwards, a bit of blogging and then off to bed (at a decent hour!) with a mug of warm tea to send me off to dreamland.


well, that's it for me. here's wishing each of you the perfect start to your week!
thanks so much for having me, sam!
