Today Dan and I went on a mystery road trip. We often do this together...just get in the car with a general direction in mind and go. Sometimes we drive to his home state, visit his mom and then pick a place to go; sometimes we go elsewhere. We always have fun together and never run out of things to talk about during our hours alone together in the car. Today we didn't even turn on the radio once or listen to music. It was enough just to be together.
This morning we headed north and ended up stopping at a state park when we saw a sign on the highway. We walked around, took photos and ran around in the fall leaves. Although I like living in New England, there are few things that I truly love about it...besides being close to Dan's family and autumn. The falling leaves fulfill all of my calendar photo dreams of what this part of the country is supposed to look like:) It feels magical.
Sometimes I feel down, everyone does, I know. Things have been hard lately with the death of my father-in-law and my dad's surgery (which was successful), but no matter what, I always remind myself of the things for which I am thankful in my life. Our relationship is at the top of the list. Days like today make me feel like one of the luckiest, happiest people in the world.
