How did I ever live without her? That’s what I ask myself when I think about Lucy. This little lab has become such a major part of my life. She’s managed to shake up quite a few things around here – and that includes my morning routine. My mornings used to be the most stressful part of my day. It was all hustle and bustle. Thanks to Lucy (and an earlier bedtime), this is no longer the case. Every morning, Lucy and I take a quick stroll around the neighborhood. Sometimes these jaunts are 30 minutes and sometimes they’re just a quick 10-minute loop around the block. It’s whatever we have time for that day. These walks have become an integral part of my morning. As soon as I’m finished washing my face (currently using this), I grab my sneakers, throw on a vest (light and easy to layer) and we’re out the door. You’d think that adding a walk to my AM routine would make my mornings more frantic than they already were but somehow that’s not the case. These short-but-sweet strolls are calming and a total mood-booster. It’s the happiest way to start the day. I’m pretty sure Lucy would agree, too.
