Sunrise is a girl’s best friend.

Sunrise: proof the best things in life are free.

Like snowflakes, no two sunrises are alike.

Rise and shine!

Rising to the occasion

Here comes the sun

I want to soak up the sun

Rise before the sun does

Rise and shine: it’s sunrise time

It’s a beautiful morning

I got a pocket full of sunshine

I’m walking on sunshine

The sun will rise and so will I

Even the darkest night ends and the sun rises again

Watch sunrises, not Netflix

Heaven is a place on earth

I love the peace of morning light

Slow down and watch the sunset

Let the sun rise in front of you and in you

Let there be sunrise

Skip the snooze button. Catch the surnise.

Sunrise, coffee, adventure.
