Do you dream of going somewhere big? Do you remember the joy of going somewhere new that you have dreamed about? While there are many places I would like to go and dream of going; I often find that time constraints, money, weather, or other obligations keep me from going everywhere on my list.
However; I find just getting in the car and exploring within a tanks drive from my home, takes me to places, people, sights, and yes —smells that are new to me. I love exploring and knowing what is to be found down a certain road, regardless of the season. Maybe I will find a covered bridge, or a new hiking trail, or at least one new to me. Maybe I will find Amish fried pies filled with all different kinds of delicious fillings and have fun talking with the people who made them. The excitement can be felt in the crisp, cool air as the leaves start to turn red and gold. Who knows where I will end, as I just decide to go! What have you found on some of your explorations?
Summertime, at least the weather is finally here! Though officially it doesn’t really arrive until June 21st, summer activities are already kicking up into high gear for us and most others I know. Root beer floats, road trip adventures, biking, hiking, camping, fishing, swimming, cookouts, summer BBQ, The State Fair, summer concerts, and in general just hanging out doing what you want and most of all making good times! I know there are many arguments for living where you can do this all year round, but then just maybe we wouldn’t appreciate it as much. Don’t know, but I do know that since it’s here, we will be making the most of our summer this year! Enjoy and Happy Summering!!
