Now that the weather is warming up (well, most days) and the sun comes up earlier, Bart and I have started walking (and occasionally running) in the mornings together.
While our apartment is not particularly nice, the neighborhood is lovely, full of beautiful houses and quiet streets, and at six a.m., the roads are silent and still.
It’s become one of my favorite parts of the day. We do nearly three miles, so we’re going pretty quickly in order to be home in time to shower, dress, eat breakfast, and get out the door in a timely manner. I love the long uninterrupted stretch of time to talk to Bart. We talk about inane things like the insane number of CR-Vs in Boston and what houses could use a little repainting and more serious matters like money and our baby and work.
If our baby is an early-ish riser, I hope we continue through the summer and into the fall, before the mornings get dark and cold again.
