Mornings Are Magic

posted by in Miscellaneous

Every post this week is dedicated to my love of the morning.
Yes, this morning is almost gone, but it’s a Monday and that means a late start for me.

I’m convinced that I’m made for the mornings: for me, it’s the most magical time of the day. I’m not inclined to talk much on Mondays so for now, let my photos show you how I start my day.

Mornings mean coffee! One day, I sit at my dining table and notice that one of the chairs is illuminated in the morning light. It makes captivating shadows and even more so when I introduce my coffee cup to the scene.

The apples that go into the fruit juice that I make for myself every morning.

There are two things that remain constant in my daily breakfast: coffee and homemade fruit juice with lots of ginger. The fruits change every day. Today, it’s pineapple. I blitzed it with some papaya, but that one is camera-shy.

Empty coffee cup means the start of a full day.

Feel free to share photos of your morning in the Comments section, or tell me why you love the morning!

  • I love mornings too. Weirdly enough, it’s the early morning rise that makes Mondays bearable for me (that sounds weird and ironic though!). It’s because I look forward to four things: my early morning run in Ayala Triangle, my hearty breakfast+coffee, having enough time for long leisurely reading (magazine or newspaper) as I rise up very early, and how the natural morning light makes my food photos look pretty :). I really like this topic! Really looking forward to your next morning posts.

  • I love mornings and especially when I get to squeeze out the last bits of summer with a sunny day in Puerto Galera. Last day before I head back to Manila’s almost-rainy-season skies.
