A fall day trip to the mountains









A few weeks ago, we went on a day trip to the beautiful NC mountains. That's one of my favoritest things about living in NC: you have a 2hr. drive to the mountains and a 4hr. drive to the beach. That only means adventures and more adventures all year long. So, anyways, mom's been with us for 4 months now, and she'll be heading back to Argentina right after Christmas (sad face) so we wanted to do something spontaneous and just have fun together. The day was perfect. That trip was perfect. We had lots of fun, snapped a bunch of pictures and were very happy campers.

I look back to that day and I'm very happy with the choice we made. During that time, we had tons of worries about a bunch of things... the easy thing to do was to stay at home with long faces, hoping that something would just turn around for good... but we didn't. We decided we needed a break from that, a "day off" from worries and responsibilities. A day to breathe deep, to feel refreshed, enjoy each other and rest knowing that, in the end, everything is gonna be alright. 

We had a wonderful day. We saw beauty everywhere. That alone renewed our soul. Once again, the glorious nature that surrounds us was a sweet reminder that we're loved deeply and madly.

XOXOXO
