My Pop pop was an early riser, and the rest of my family, notoriously likes to sleep in. I can remember each morning, he would get up and have his Ritz crackers with peanut butter at the breakfast table and then, in his loud deep voice, announce "Rise and Shine!" to wake the rest of us up! Slowly, one by one, my sisters and brother and I would trickle out of the bedrooms and join him for breakfast, usually donuts and bagels from the bakery up the street. It was pretty much perfect and one of my favorite childhood memories.
So when I saw this print, I had to have it. I plan to hang it in our guest room. Not only will the yellow go well with the blues, whites, and little nautical touches we have planned, but it will be a little reminder of my Pop pop, perfect for when my family comes to visit!
