My husband is notorious for sleeping in, and taking naps at the drop of a hat. I am the opposite. Because I start my work day at 7:30am, I am used to getting up early, and couldn’t sleep in if I wanted to. This benefitted me when we took a beach vacation to Edisto Beach, SC last September. The sun didn’t rise until 7, so I was up at least an hour ahead to prepare for my sunrise photos. The weather was perfect, and the water warm. I got up four mornings in a row before the sun came up snapping away. You can see more of these at etsy.com.
It pays not to sleep in!
