the backyard has become a morning ritual for me since moving back to maui. i think i understand how much being able to hang outside everyday is such a gem. this time i like to call opening (my day, my heart, my eyes) is always accompanied with a cup of coffee and made palatable with my latest favorite, creme brulee creamer. summer usually follows me out and depending on her mood she tries to fit herself in my lap along with my journal and bible. lately i have also been bringing along this. when summer isn't in the mood to cuddle she finds other fun. the newest and latest backyard friend is this bamboo scaling wonder.
hope he doesn't come crawling in my lap any time soon!
