Sunday Morning

Remember how I said I am that person who loves 1:00 church? I know some people feel like it is too late and don't like getting done so late in the afternoon, but I realized I like it so much because I love Sunday Mornings.  Ben and I went through an 8:30 am church stint and it nearly killed us.

Growing up, my dad used to make a big breakfast Sunday morning (breakfast is my dad's thing), waffles+ice cream or french toast+fresh fruit.  It was one of my favorite times of the week at home.  Ben is not a big breakfast eater so we don't usually have the big breakfasts, only on special occasions, but maybe when we have little children, we will have a similar tradition.

Sometimes Ben and I sleep in till noon and then get ready which is perfect sometimes.
Or sometimes we get up early and enjoy the morning.

Ben worked all night last night, so he slept in.  I got up early{ish}, put on my warm robe, caught up on some blogs, tidied up, ate some cheerio's and painted my nails.  I also like to take my time to get ready on Sundays and pick out my "Sunday Best". Sometimes I call home and talk to my family before their church and sometimes I take a bath instead of the usual quick shower.  It is just the best time to relax, to reflect, to cuddle, to eat and to take a little break from the busy week and fun filled weekend.

See? I love my Sunday mornings.  Here's to hoping our new place's meeting time is not before noon!
Happy Sunday.

Love us some Sundays too, for that same reason! We usually go to church on Thursday nights so we can have "our Sundays" :)

I love sunday mornings, too! 1 o'clock church is too late for me but 8:30 is wayyy too early! 11:30 is what we had for a while and that was perfect :)

i know, i like the late service too. the early does give you SO much of a day, but something about not rushing just feels... wonderful :)

my dad always woke us up on sunday mornings blasting handel's messiah over the intercom. so obnoxious then, but kinda awesome now. :)
