I truly adore this city.

this morning, I arrived at the NCAA Hall of Champions at 7 am.

after a quick stop at Starbucks where the barista not only asked if the “e” on the end of my name is silent (oh hey, comedian!), but spelled my name correctly & doodled a fancy heart on the side of my cup (ow ow ow!),

I parked in the garage & couldn’t help but notice the beautiful sun rising over the city.

Indianapolis has long felt like my place, but particularly this morning, this city really does feel like home.

this morning’s commute was very golden & very pretty- the best kind of early morning commute.

i’ve learned to appreciate a gorgeous sunrise,

but nothing, truly nothing will ever compare to a sunset in the corn.

it’s a #nofilter kind of morning.

pure gorgeousness as i drove East.

no cars in sight, so i snapped a picture.

(& i did manage to hit two curbs after i exited the interstate.)

i’d call it a quality commute.

i wasn’t annoyed when i woke up to the bright sunshine beaming through my wooden, window shades,

because today is for a fresh start, a fresh sprit, & a fresh attitude.

& experiencing a golden wake-up was just the way to begin my day.

with the moon setting to the west & the sun rising to the east,

this morning was for a peaceful, easy drive.

bentley was to be at the groomer, across town, by 8 a.m. & so, like on every other six week appointment deadline, we set out on our twenty minute drive to make that happen.

some of these early mornings are more difficult that others,

(w/ the occasional chasing around the house, the coercing her into the car w/ treats & greenies, her shaking the entire way until i finally give in & put the window down…even when it’s thirty degrees outside)

this morning was not one of them.

this morning was for gorgeous landscapes, bright, warm sunshine, & a very tolerable furball sitting somewhat calmly in the passenger seat by my side.

simple pleasure of the day: early morning skyscapes…

(just one reason why i’m an early-riser).

how could it be anything other than a fabulous day when my day started out with such a gorgeous view?

anticipation: ever since the middle of june, my mind has slowly started shifting from summer mode to school mode.  

summer is supposed to be a time to regroup, relax and rejuvenate the mind and body. but my mind has already started the natural shift to grad school jitters.  the other night i had a nightmare that i forgot to write a paper and forgot to study for a history test (i’m not even enrolled in a history class!). i woke up in a panic the next morning.

i’m not the type of person that can relax very easily. this has been a little issue when i tell my dad i’ll ‘watch’ the closer with him.  ”are you ready yet, brooke?”.. “just go ahead, i’m listening!”…

you will rarely find me sitting on a couch for longer than an hour..and if i am sitting on the couch for longer than an hour, i’m either not feeling well or i’ll be “watching” t.v., painting my nails, working on my computer, drinking diet coke, skimming magazines; multi-tasking, always.  

so, it’s really no surprise that i would start anticipating the new school year mid-summer break.  and now that i’m less than a week away from starting a new year, my mind has really turned over to school mode.

this morning, i was up before the sun.  i took advantage of it.

i fed the dog, grabbed the paper, a cup of coffee, and sat on the back porch to watch the sun begin it’s journey through the sky.

it was peacefully perfect.

just what i needed to relax my anticipating mind; at least long enough for a picture.

Hi! I'm Brooke. Indianapolis is my home & I welcome you to my little nook. I'm a twenty-something girl who was born in the land of corn (Okl.), attended undergrad in the true Sea of Red (Neb.), & eventually found her way back home again after picking up a couple letters behind her name (Kan.) while clinging to an adorable Maltipoo named Bentley.
