Friday Daydreamin' - on a Saturday. At Night.


I know I'm late for the party.  Yesterday was my sweet daughter's birthday, so I posted about her.

But I still want to play.  R we There Yet Mom? Asked about places we LOVE.

I haven't been a lot of places in my life.  I've only been to a handful of different states, and so far the only other state my kids have visited is Idaho, when we drive across the border to meet up with family for our bi-annual reunions.

But Even if I'd been around the world twice, I don't think there is anywhere I could love more than my beautiful mountains.  Except maybe somebody else's beautiful mountains.  I LOVE the mountains.  I love the smell, and the quiet.  I mean mountain quiet.  The animal sounds, and rushing rivers are part of the mountain quiet.  I love campfires and fishing and looking up into the sky and seeing the millions of stars that aren't visible from the city.

We are so blessed to be surrounded by gorgeous mountains on all sides, and to be able to hop in the car and drive for 20 minutes and be up the canyon in nature's beauty.  I hope to travel more someday, but even if I never get the chance, I think I can be content as long as I have my mountains.

I'm so jealous. Oklahoma has "mountains" but I'm not sure that people with REAL mountains would call them mountains. They are big hills. End of story.

When I went to Denver in December, I fell in LOVE with REAL mountains.

Love your pictures. BEAUTIFUL!

Every time we went to Utah we always made a trip up to the canyon. I love the mountains there. I want to take my kids there so they can experience it.
