I have a love/hate relationship with Daylight Savings time.
I love it because the days get longer and the creamy, golden light at sunset perfect for engagement sessions isn’t at 4pm. It’s no longer is dark by 4:30.
I hate it because I lose an hour of sleep. And one little hour can make a huge difference. I went to bed at 1am (but technically it was 2am) and woke up at 8:30am (but my body felt like it was 7:30am).
Sunday morning, I had an event to photograph and because of DST starting, I felt like a zombie. All. Day. Long.
Now if we could combine the gaining an hour of sleep of “Fall Back” and the light of “Spring Forward”, talk about a match made in heaven!
Of course, it probably didn’t help that I just returned from a week in Las Vegas that involved little sleep and serious mental overload of information.
So I’m hoping that by the end of this week, I’m back to my normal routine. Not feeling like a zombie.
How do you feel about Springing Forward?
I found this pretty photo of a Dahlia on Flickr by Eric in SF and just had to share. It totally says “Spring!” to me.
On a side note, we’ve been getting gorgeous weather in Dallas lately. Would you like to schedule a session? I have limited availability for the rest of March!
