An Escape From Everyday Life

Yesterday, the hubby and I packed up our four-wheeler and headed out to the family farm about two hours away. What a beautiful day. The temperature was about 75 degrees. A far cry from a foot of snow last weekend, huh? Actually its my sister's husband's family that has the land, but they share it with all of us. They have about 175 acres or so. They have rolling hills with a stream running through it. Depending upon the water levels, this can be a small stream or a rolling river. The hubby and I rode through the stream and up the rolling hills to the very top. What a beautiful view. I wish I had brought my camera so I could've shared this view with all of you. Maybe next time.

We needed to get away, that's for sure. We both had endured a majorly hectic work week and were stressed to the max. We spent the entire day riding through the hills and talking with the old folks at the farm. I live in the city (now) but am a country girl at heart. Maybe some day we will retire out that way. I want pastures full of horses and a stream to sit beside and just chill. I cannot imagine anyone going out there and listening to the wind rustle through the trees or the stream running over the rock and not believing in God. It's truly a spiritual place to be. We truly had the time of our lives and want to do this again very soon.

By the time we got home, we were both worn out and I slept better last night than I have in months and months.

I wish this kind of relaxed feeling for all of you!
