MY WISH FOR YOU?


May you never cease to be amazed by the beauty that surrounds you. We've had this house for four years now, and at first I worried that I might eventually become jaded - start to take all of this for granted. But nope, not happening! Each time I return from somewhere else, drive up over that rise in the road and suddenly see our valley spread out in front of me, and each time I glance up from my computer to see the hawks performing their spiraling ballet just for me, or I see the sun dipping down behind the hills, infusing the sky with pastel finger-paint patterns, I still feel the need to pinch myself and ask "Is this real? Do I really live somewhere as beautiful as this, or am I still in the 'burbs, just daydreaming over some magazine photo?"

Bee-utiful photo! Hopefully I'll have a place like that soon! In the meantime, I'm loving Colorado! =)

I think part of why I fell in love with Wimberley is that it reminded me of the place where my family went every summer in Creede, CO. I posted a picture a while back of young me in a porch swing by the river - that was in Creede. I'm definitely a river person, rather than a lake or ocean person.
