A short and simple reminder to enjoy the beauty and simplicity of a trip to your own backyard. How is that for an economical road trip, free from the stress of the highway traffic. Pack a lunch from your favorite restaurant (your own kitchen) and enjoy the view.
These are a few pictures taken in my own neighborhood. A small lake that hosts a team of wildlife year around. Denise loves the ducks that call this little pond home. Although it is tough to see the cycle of life, new tiny miracles appear from time to time!
And, reminds me that sometimes we need to just slow down and appreciate the beauty that surrounds us.
Let me share with you the most important thing I have discovered. Where ever you go, whatever you see, share it with others! Don’t be afraid to stop and smell the roses, to share a smile with a stranger, a meal with friends and build memories together that will last a lifetime!
