Before the sun rises each day, Chris wakes me up with a kiss, I pull on some sweatpants, rub the gunk out of my eyes and stumble into the passenger's seat of our car. With only one car, I have to drive him into work if I don't want to be trapped in the house all day.
Usually our pre-dawn conversations include me sharing my colorful, wild dreams from the night before and sometimes we talk about Chris' schedule for the day. But mostly, we just sit in the dark car and enjoy a few extra minutes together before another busy day starts. Then, we pull up to the pier, exchange hugs and I drive home to get another hour's sleep (or two... or three if I'm being honest.)
And most days, as I drive away, I get to enjoy spectacular sunrises like this.
I love our early morning drives.
