Summer days lately have been long. Wonderful but long. The sun is up by six and doesn’t decide to set until ten, that can really throw a schedule off! Last weekend the hubs and I didn’t wake up until 10am!! I could not believe it! I’m not one who likes sleeping in, especially on the weekends, when there is so much to do in such a short amount of time. What about you guys, are you late sleepers? Needless to say since we skipped breakfast all together, so we made brunch.
