My bedroom window faces East, and I am blessed to be able to witness gorgeous sunrises without even having to get out of bed. The other day I couldn’t resist capturing some of the golden light and I jumped out of bed, pulled on my boots and an old fleece and ran outside.

Sam must have heard me leave, because when I turned around to walk back into the house, I discovered that he had followed me outside. He wasn’t wearing  a coat, and his boots were on the wrong feet but he was just so excited to be running outdoors in the sunshine at seven in the morning…and I mean, look at that smile!

I don’t know what the deal is with the last pose. He’s flexing perhaps? Hard to say.
