Ian Somerhalder is a notoriously-cheery guy, and that was exemplified in the Vampire Diaries star’s latest Instagram photo.

To show exactly how he starts his day at work, Ian zoomed in on his chair and script on set, noting how he wakes up to kisses… from the sun.

His sweet caption read: “Good morning world - you ready to work? It's nice when the sun finally wakes up and kisses the day...Set your intention & make this the best day ever. Do it - it's the only way ;).”

While we would expect him to be talking about kissing his pup Nietzsche, one of his seven grandpups, or perhaps a lucky lady, the idea of the sun waking up and kissing the day is kind of adorable. We love how cheesy Ian can be.

In the photo, the shadows or a few other chairs are visible, and if you look closely, there’s a hand over his name, too. It could just be Ian making shadow puppets for the hand, but we wonder whose chairs are next to his. While no one is sitting in them, maybe they were observing his Instagramming.

What do you think of Ian’s morning routine? Sound off below.
