we had an incredible weekend camping on the st.croix with some of the best of friends. the fall colors were at their peak, and made for a breathe taking sight. the entire time i was giddy. i couldn't get over the beautiful colors, all of the lovely trees, and even the crispy air. lucky for me, we got to do quite bit of hiking to see all of the different beautiful spots. i loved taking advantage of the last bits of fall and cooking all of our meals over the fire. it was AMAZING. this mini-vacaction was such a reminder to take time and see all of the beauty that surrounds us. each season provides a unique feel and beauty, but it is only here for a short moment and it is up to us to take it in. that is something that i am trying to work on. being content in my circumstances and seeing the beauty that surrounds us. (because too often i don't realize how incredible something or a season was until its gone... the joy of life comes from all of these little things )how easy it is to let it pass us by. so go enjoy the rest of the fall colors, take it all in!
