The drive is usually the least memorable part of the trip, but this past weekend it turned into an event in itself. We have been driving the same route to and from Steve's family's house for six years now. I don't know exactly what made us take a new path, but here's to shaking things up a bit.
The scenery was everything I'd hoped for and more- farms, horses, cows, fences, trees, crops. Noticeably missing from this trip: large trucks, traffic, and fast food. I did see a few McDonald's, but they were not the norm. The roads felt quiet and empty, like we were taking a Sunday drive in the country. Which I guess is exactly what we were doing on the way home on Sunday.
It was equally grand.
Today feels like the perfect start to summer- hot and sunny and fresh cut grass and watermelon and wet hair on bare shoulders. Hope yours is off to an equally satisfying start!
