Folgers Best Part of Waking Up

This is sponsored content from BlogHer and Folgers.

So, what is the best part of waking up?

Well, in spring, in Dallas, it’s waking up with a fresh breeze blowing in the window, the scent of fresh air filling the room. It’s hearing the fountain on the pool running like a waterfall and the birds chirping in my palm trees, like we’re somewhere in the islands, instead of the suburbs.

It’s opening the bedroom door and smelling freshly brewed coffee coming from the kitchen, just waiting to be served. And some mornings, when it’s a really good morning, there are fresh donuts that magically appear on the kitchen counter, that are always a good accompaniment to the coffee.

It’s getting the first hot shower of the morning, standing in there with steaming hot water raining down, and not having to worry that you’re the one who is going to run out of hot water.

But most of all, the best part of waking up is two little people barging into my room and climbing into bed because they just have to snuggle with Mommy in the morning. It’s cuddling my sweet girl and boy in bed for a bit, before we have to get up and start the day, or watching cartoons in bed on a lazy morning, while they giggle and I strive for just five more minutes of sleep.

Morning necessities, a good cup of coffee and my iPhone
