I had a sunrise chasing fail 🙈...

have a confession... 

I totally botched chasing an insanely gorgeous sunrise last week 🙈. You see, I woke up at dawn, looked out the window due East, and it didn’t look like the sunrise was going to paint the sky. ⁣ ⁣

Bad, bad judgement call...⁣

I went back to bed for a mere 20 minutes, woke back up to walk Gidget, and the clouds to the Northeast were painted pastel pink. I almost slapped myself because *had* I checked the window to the Northeast when I first got up, I would totally have hopped in the car to get a better view of this pretty in pastel sunrise that was unfolding in front of my eyes! ⁣

But then I tilted my head, and saw the crescent moon peeping in and out of the pastel sky. In a very accurate description of emojis...😍🌅🌙!!! I quickly ran inside, grabbed my camera, and just had to capture this sunrise moon magic.

So the silver lining in this sunrise chasing fail...

If I had really gotten out of bed to chase sunrise from a different location, I may not have had this sunrise view of the moon! Thank you U n i v e r s e for the beautiful reminder that everything happens for a reason!!!
