This year, I’ve decided to join a group of super fab and super talented photographers from The Bloom Forum in a project called “52 Wednesdays.” Each week we will take a photo (or a few) that correspond to that weeks topic. Under each post, we will link to the next person in the group to form a blog hop to check out everyone’s great entries. This will result in at least 52 photos at the end of the year, that I might not have taken had it not been for this little project.
This weeks theme was “Morning” and I’ve already taken a few shots that I would have never thought to take before. So needless to say, I’m pretty excited for this project because I’ve already gotten some memories from it!
I decided to take pictures of my three cats, as they are usually the first thing I encounter in the morning. On most mornings, I usually find my calico cat staring me down. She is always the most concerned about her next meal. She’s also the most vocal, and as soon as I open my eyes, she usually has a thing or two to say to me.
Our tuxedo cat is the only one that won’t wake me up for food in the mornings. If she had her way, she’d have me stay in bed to cuddle all day. And it’s not enough for her to cuddle up next to me, her usual preference is to be on top of me, as is referenced by the last photo taken by my lovely husband.
Our tiger striped is the least cuddly, but has no problems jumping on the bed on days he’s particularly hungry. His usual choice to wake me up is by kneading my back with his enormous claws.
A few other ways they have chosen to wake me up in the past is by chewing on my hair and taking turns diving on top of my face. (Seriously, no joke!) Even though they are all a little wacky, they have been great additions to our family over the last few years, and waking up to them cuddled close is *usually* a great way to start my morning!
