It’s 5am. My alarm goes off, but I have already been awake for a little while just lying in bed enjoying the silence of the early morning. No other time of day is this quiet and peaceful. I reach over and hit the off button on my phone before the ringing wakes Gavin, who has likely snuck into bed next to me sometime during the night. After rising from the warmth of the blankets, the very first thing I do is head to my new espresso machine in the kitchen.
