After a good night's sleep - I like to have the water hot when my campers wake up! Having tea and hot chocolate available feels like showing love to them!
I learned on our first camping trip, that my family likes hot breakfasts while we are camping - so our first morning was perfect for pancakes! We all love the crispy edges that happen in the cast iron skillet over the camp stove. I like to mix these up ahead of time and put in canning jars or a gallon ziploc so they just need to be cooked and served. Emily brought me the cute Enthusiasm is Contagious mug from summer camp - I love it!
Rabbit trail: enamelware is just so charming! I'm not as big a fan of the current trend in making mugs that look like speckled enamelware but are actually ceramic! Not the same!
After breakfast, our kids and I do the dishes together: one on wash, one on rinse and one on dry. Then I put everything away! When that is all tidied away, I'm ready for a nice slow morning!
This book Humble Roots is so, so good. I read it cover to cover last week and can't wait to read it again. So many good things to chew on and let settle.
After some reading and quiet time, a nature walk was a lovely idea!
Super fun gift from a sweet friend: enamel flower pot from Ikea! Love!
It is amazing how much living and enjoying can happen in one morning without the normal chores and distractions of to-do's and technology. Just being out in nature - so peaceful and really so restorative and so good for the soul!
