This is one of the reasons I fell in love with the house and subdivision we moved into last year. The drive there.
I always thought of myself as a city girl, but I've come to realize that I'm really not.
Give me long, curvy country roads. The trees, the farms, the horses. Beauty as far as the eyes can see.
We live right outside of the city, but sometimes it seems a 100 miles away. We have the best of both worlds, country living, within minutes of the city.
I savor the drive home every afternoon. It gives me time to unwind, leave the office at the office and just breathe! The horses are normally out grazing, and I slow down just to watch them.
The trees.....the TREES - right now are GLORIOUS! Vibrant reds, oranges and yellows. You can't help but slow down and take it all in.
Turning into the subdivision I get my mind right for being Wifey and Mommy. Homework needs to be done, dinner needs to be cooked, family needs to be loved on.
Thank God for my FAMILY and HOME!
