Staying consistent with my morning routine is everything. ad A great morning can set the tone for a wonderful day ahead it helps me smile more and spread good energy every step of the way. My morning routine consists of meditating, reading, writing, and taking a sunrise photo all before 7am, but sometimes this routine includes catching a flight for work trips. One of my favorite ways to keep the good energy flowing on flight days is to request an Uber Black trip to the airport. Having trust that a professional driver will know the route and that the ride will provide comfort is key to starting a work trip off right. Also, with the ability to request new features like a Silent Ride, I can pay attention to the things that matter. UberBlack

Happy first of the month! May was quite a beauty with lots of warm colors and rainy mornings. Fun fact: The sun rises one minute earlier every day until mid June then it starts rising later again for Fall. Right now it’s coming up at about 4:20AM. June is going to be interesting. LOL 🌞 Which sunrise is your favorite? SwopesDailySunrise ShotOniPhone

It’s that time again! 🌞 SwopesDailySunrise is on its 14th month (thanks April! 😍) and because of my travels I hadn’t been able to collect exactly a year of photos at the 12th month, but I’m so happy to say that I’ve finally reached 365 sunrise photos 😊💛 I’ve reached my goal and I’m not sure when I’ll stop? Because I truly love and am obsessed with waking up and watching every single sunrise. Thank you all for holding me accountable. It’s definitely been one of the best things I’ve done, ever.
