Life has led us in many strange directions this year, but in-between it all we’ve been blessed by exceptionally good fortune too, and today is a day I want to take a moment to reflect on that.
We’re deeply thankful for all the beautiful moments we’ve been gifted this year. The sound of the ocean on the West coast, the sunrise in the mountains of Idaho, the peaceful lakes of Michigan, the incredible natural beauty all around us. And we’re also deeply thankful for those close to us. Our paws, our family, our friends and all of you blog readers who’ve supported and shared in our adventures over the years. These are all intangible things that cannot be bought, but they are some of the richest rewards any person can ask for.
Yesterday the Universe reminded me of that message, yet again.
We missed the fall colors this year, even though we traveled the entire East Coast at pretty much the “perfect” time of year. We kept getting glimpses, but either the weather (mostly rain) or the spots we chose to camp didn’t give us the full effect. Last night, something about the way the sky was changing at sunset prompted me to break out the big camera and go outside for a peek. I hiked over to the lake and what I saw was the last rays of the sun lighting up the trees across the way in a fiery storm of reds of oranges. It was the most perfectly beautiful display of fall theater I’d seen, and in that moment I felt like everything just fell into place.
It may have taken us the whole year to get here, and it certainly took the whole East Coast to find it, but here it finally was -> our perfect fall reflected in a perfect lake in a park in the middle of Florida. Here’s hoping your day is just as rich and rewarding, in all the ways that matter. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!SPONSORED LINK:
