getting through monday.

a photo i took last week before one of my classes

This morning, I rose at 6:30. My alarm went off at 6:15, but my eyelids refused to stay open, even though I was trying to read emails. The longer I laid there, the more I told myself I had to get up. And at 6:30, I popped right out of bed to get on with the day. 

Even with the morning I've had since the moment I got out of bed [a wheat bagel with strawberry cream cheese, a cup of coffee in my favorite mug, the viewing of my favorite vlog channel, a couple of workout videos, blog-reading]... Mondays are still a little bit hard. Especially after being wrapped up in the comfort of home for the past couple of days,  I think it's necessary to supplement Mondays with a spot of good reading. 

And in the spirit of that notion, here are some things I think are 'a spot of good reading' worthy:

+ Megan shared a bit about being homesick this weekend. As someone who is no stranger to this particular emotion, I found this post comforting, especially the quote she shared at the end.

+ Betsy is married! I loved reading about a tiny glimpse into her wedding day.

+ Sometimes I just really like looking at simple - but beautiful - photos. Rachel certainly offered some up in this post.

What have you stumbled across today, that made Monday a little easier? I'd love some more inspiration for the week. Please do share.

I just read this article about a secret "club" of 9 ladies who got together and started anonymously helping out strangers for 30 YEARS before anyone found out! Read it. It'll make you feel all warm and fuzzy :)

I discovered this lovely lady today and I think I'm going to like her quite a lot. Maybe you will too? :)
