After a long winter, waiting and waiting for what feels like forever, the arrival of the sweet summer days & summer air to greet us, it finally surrounds us once again with all its glory….
A country road trip in the summer Is just what I needed..
There are so many things to be done, so many new events to come and fun to be had but it leaves us feeling a bit overwhelmed at times,
So the first thing I usually do with my significant other lol or a bestie, is take a nice scenic country drive to…Nowhere! Yup…not the beach, not to a resort or harbor. No real Destination at ALL! To clear my mind of the day prior, the hustle of rushing and the bustle of a busy scedule.
It’s very relaxing to me and not to mention it’s…..filled with beautiful history and mysterious wonders with unexplored places that sit quaintly worn and weathered around every corner. Just waiting to be seen again.
Like a book your lost in, a movie in your mind, memories of childhood as you see something resembling the past that may trigger a memory you cherished as a child or moments that you miss from time to time.
For me, its kind of like writing my own book in a way, …As you piece together what you see in abandoned barns, old cars covered with weeds and untouched by the sunlight hidden underneath amongst other aged vehicles…
All are mysteriously abandoned old country homes that sit untouched and unloved by human life, homes taken into nature’s arms.
Beautifully crafted, worn down & weathered from so many years gone by ….Old town buildings, wooden fences, dead ends and small shops that are abandoned and hold little chance at life again,old style country storefronts that sit empty and alone.
The scenery really is quite breathtaking and not the kind of breathtaking like we usually think of it ,but the one that makes you wonder…. a mystery that makes you really think…Scenery where you really wonder by what your eye has caught….an old abandoned farmhouse,
We wonder, Who lived there before it became abandoned? Was there happiness inside those walls or fear?
Was there secrets hidden under that now crumbling foundation or behind those old walls? Did they dance or cry on those old wooden floors…? How long has it remained empty and why? What did it look like 50 years ago?…100 years ago….? Who remained inside…Was it an old lonely hardworking man with a history or a young couple in love waiting to raise a family?
I don’t think a house is just a house Ever really is it?
We love our homes and we invest our time in the care and hardwork we put into them. We raise our families in them and we cherish them making them our own,making our own memories that we will hold with us til we are very old. We make our homes a part of history.
Long & Endless Country roads..
Vintaged Beautifully 🌼
A road to nowhere will always lead you somewhere….
Down along an old beaten path, an old dirt road where wildflowers grow and the wind tangles your hair in the warm summer air.
Life seemed to have just up and left….
From the passagenger side..
Beautiful things of country drives…
Trees Lined so perfectly alongside a crinkled, weathered road.
The Warm Wind in your hair.
Winding roads and just a hint of the smell of fresh cut grass.
Starry nites you can’t stop gazing at Your too afraid to blink in fear the moment will cease and u love it so much that you just never want it to end or fade from your within your sight.
🌼 It is so beatifully created that you want to bottle it up and take in every moment, again and again forever.
🐎 Speckled horses roaming gracefully along old fenced in hillsides.
Fresh laundry swaying carelessly on an old farm line.
Clouds that make pictures in your mind of critters and powdered white angels moving fast through the baby blue sky.
Road trips are my favorite thing to do in the summer as long as it leads you to……NOWHERE!
🌼SO GO FIND YOUR NOWHERE ! 😉
