What makes me tick...



I dragged Luke off to the flower markets at 5.30am on Saturday morning and on the way home we were laughing at how outrageous it was that i was excited to get out of bed that early to buy flowers. Ask me to go for a run at that hour or go on a holiday at this time i would most likely refuse. Yet, the thought of trying to find some sweet peas in the middle of winter is exciting and very glamourous. P.s I didn't find any sweet peas but found some pretty roses (the orchids are from my mum's garden).

Whilst Luke doesn't jump out of bed in the search for flowers it did make me think how different things make people tick...  Give me first pick of the flowers, for Kate (my best friend) she would love a sleep in and a late breakfast, my mum, a healthy breakfast and a game of tennis. What makes you tick of a morning?

  2. The thing that will make me leap out of bed at the crack of dawn is going to the flea market or a tag sale. I'm with you 100% on the flowers, too! These are lovely photos, Kellie!

  3. As a busy mamma of three I would choose to sleep late and then enjoy a scrummy breakfast and the paper.

    Your flowers are beautiful. xx

  4. You're in Sydney? I was born in NSW and lived there since I was 10, and then moved up to Noosa in QLD, and then when I finished college I moved to Los Angeles, and then 7 years later, here I am in Houston.

    It's funny that you are posting about the flower market. I was thinking about the flower market this morning and how I want to go! I would be excited like you are, so don't worry - you aren't the only one!

  7. I can't remember when I got up that early. I never set the alarm and get up when I wake naturally, in my own rhythm so to speak. Since I stay up late this can be anything from 8AM (rarely) to 11AM. The roses are beautiful!

  10. Beautiful flowers!! I'm glad you had a good time with or without the sweet peas.

    Hmmm, I would have to say just slowly waking up and laying in bed enjoying the morning sunlight coming through my window.

  12. Happy Sunday Kellie. I love an iced chi in the morning and to catch up on all my favorite blogs. So many talented people & so little time! I spied some lovely sweet peas when I was home in Seattle last week at the Farmers Market. You could get a bouquet for $3. Oh how I love them too.

  13. wow, you are certainly committed to get up that early! you did find some beauties though. there's not a lot that can get me out of bed that early except work and that's no fun.
    maybe a day at the spa?

  15. I would actually say getting up on a sunday sitting in bed with a cuppa & going through all my blogging friends & trying to post something interesting. but this saturday I was up at 4am driving to a huge market to promote The Feathered Nest it was so worth it for all the lovely coments people were making about my stall. So this Sunday was a lazy morning, lots of catching up especially with all your lovley post to go through thanks for being so inspiring, enjoy your roses, they look so worth it Elaine :)

  25. I am not a morning person at all but I think I would get up for flowers, followed by a yummy breakfast in a lovely cafe on the way home, mmmmm... now that could get me out of bed!

  26. True...you got it in one! I take the sleep in & the delicious breakfast. However, your beautiful flower market finds are inspiring me! You'll have to drag me along one weekend soon. Followed by a fabulous breakfast, of course :)xx

  27. The first thing that came to my mind was: nothing!
    I love to sleep in! :-) lazy lazy lazy
    BUT, truth is that nowadays I get out of bed very happily to go to my yoga classes! I love it!
    And, the smell of food! Food takes me out of bed too ;-)

    Have a nice week!

  29. I used to love going to the Sydney Flower markets, I haven't been since I moved back to Sydney with two little boys. However Sebastian wakes me at 5.30 rain, hail or shine so this week I think he will be my early morning date to the markets. Lovely idea - thanks.
