Weekend Love {The beauty of change} My thoughts

"Every leaf speaks bliss to me, fluttering from the autumn tree"-Emily Bronte

The weekend arrived, and I was thrilled to adventure out into nature. So much beauty around, the scenery was breathtaking, and there was a cool breeze in the air. When we first moved out here to Colorado, I remember I cried. If you were to ask me why, I'm sure I would tell you because I had called Arizona my home for so long. I was just sad to say goodbye. We relocated due to the Army. Once we arrived here, I can honestly say I fell in love. It's been a few years now, and I absolutely love it here. I now call this beautiful place my home. 

We took a short adventure out in nature where we enjoyed some fresh air, took family pictures, and let our daughter climb, run, and explore. It was nice watching her enjoy being outdoors. Fall makes me so happy. Leaves changing in color, and falling from trees, it's all so beautiful. We sat by a small creek and enjoyed the calming sounds of the water. I had time to really think, and put so many things into perspective. 

My first thought was, how thankful I was to be able to see yet another day. I stared at my husband, and our daughter, and I just felt so much love and happiness. They give me purpose, and make life worth living for. 
My second thought, why did I ever cry about moving to such a beautiful place?  It's just so beautiful! My husband eventually departed with the Army,(which I'm sure for him it was sad saying goodbye after being in for so long). We wanted to start a family, so it was time for a new career. We eventually purchased our first home, and a few months after my husband's last deployment we found out we were pregnant with our little sunshine. We were so thrilled, and filled with so much love. For this child, we truly prayed for. 

And my last thought while out,  I really need to experience life more. I need to enjoy, laugh a little harder, hug longer, you know just live!  I've always been that person, but lately I've let little things take over so much of my time, when I shouldn't . So I've decided I'm going to enjoy every second of this beautiful life. I hope you do the same. :)
Thank you for coming along on this journey with me. I hope you enjoy your stay~
