I am not really a morning person, but I’ve always had this positive association with getting up early and getting to see the sunrise – it always makes me really happy.
And I think this comes from my childhood, where as a family… we weren’t really early risers if we could help it, but about once every year my parents would wake us all up really really early, pack us into the car with orange juice and donuts, and off we’d go down the freeways of Southern California.
And they wouldn’t tell us where we were going, but eventually we would figure out that we were going to Disneyland!
They would take us every year because my dad had a former coworker who now works at Disneyland so she could get us in for free and it was just this big family trip. We’d get there as early as we could, we would leave as late as possible after the fireworks and everything and it was such a long exhausting day, but it was always just such a good family memory.
