Late Winter Mornings...Rise Early

We are deep into winter here in Minnesota, but with March 
just days away, my thoughts are turning to spring!

The days are longer now, and my mornings are quiet.

Long gone are the days of getting my children off to school,
 and while I do miss those times, 
I have learned to enjoy my early rise and the peace it brings. 
I love sitting at this table and having breakfast with my husband.

My view from the table is quite snow-covered now, but I am cozy indoors...and enjoy watching the weather, and the people and wildlife on the lake.

I often have my computer at the table, and work on my blog posts here.  
A good cup of coffee is always nearby!

The dining room sideboard is a great place to have
 our coffee station and serve food for our family and guests.
It can get quite busy here then!

I love the Pembina Metal Mug Holder I recently received from Wayfair! They have many wonderful and useful items in their Kitchen and Tabletop section!

The mug holder is heavyweight, holds 24 mugs...and I love its curly feet.

It's such a decorative and convenient way to have mugs right at hand!

I so enjoy my coffee in the early morning...how about you?

  1. Good Monday morning Linda. I bet you cannot wait to be looking out at that view when summer comes. How beautiful the sounds and smells of the lake will be. Looks pretty even with snow covering it. Pretty soon Spring should be coming. We do not have any snow left here in Illinois and finally are seeing warmer temps and sunshine today. Yeah feels fabulous. Hugs and Happy New Week.

  2. We are staring to get a bit of Spring here in Georgia. I love that coffee mug holder. I have a French bottle drying rack that I use for mugs but it doesn't hold that many and I love coffee mugs! Cute sideboard.

  4. It looks like a wonderful morning to me. Don't you love living on the water? I am so hoping we can find something smaller on the water here...there is just something peaceful about it.

    Love your coffee station and mug holder. xo Diana
