Sunday drivers

I hope all mothers out there had a wonderful Mother's Day yesterday. It was such a nice sunny day around here that Dave took me for a sunday drive in the backroads. He knows how much these slow driving outings mean to me and he also knows exactly when I need one of these outings.

You never know what you'll see in the woods ...

It always makes me sad to see old abandoned homes going to nothing.

When I was a little girl my dad would stop at this pure spring often and after he died it was many, many years that I did'nt go so I forgot where it was. Last year my brother and SIL took my niece and I for a wilderness drive and showed us the Spring. What wonderful memories and now Dave and I stop everytime we go by to fill up our water vessels.

You live in such a beautiful area. I am so glad you found the spring, memories can be powerful and comforting.

Thanks Alli. Maybe some day I can show you our little hidden gem.

Hi Vickie ~ Enjoyed the ride , the scenery was beautiful. There is a spring a few miles from us , it's famous for the water and history of the location. Back in the day , people travelled from all over to drink the water , it is suppose to have health and beauty benefits. Glad you found your spring again , enjoy those memories.

~ Many Blessings ~

Hi Vicki

quick question, I was just contacted by CSN to do a review or giveaway - can you tell me when you did your review, how much was the gift certificate they sent you - I don't want to get into this if it will end up costing me a fortune :)
