    What a glorious day … these are so pretty. I love the sun glistening on the water in the last photo, looks so tranquil Jess. xo

      We took the LONG way home. The sun on the water picture is a creek about 5 miles from here. I went there specifically for a sun reflection shot. When we arrived, I saw a glimmer of sunlight and had to back up to get it. It was soooooooooo beautiful. It was just a sliver of yellow and orange. If we’d passed by in a hurry, we’d have missed it.

        Ah, see, you’ve mastered the art of taking life slowly and looking out for the beauty. Just another of the things I love about you and that we have in common. xo

      Thank you. We took one backroad home, but instead of going home, we kept taking backroads. The prize was a gorgeous sunset. :) Thank you for your kind comment.

    I like the last one too, I had to look twice, I thought it was snow at first and I thought ‘Already?!’ But thank goodness it was just the beautiful light.

    • Jessica October 5, 2016 / 2:37 pm

      I think it looks like snow, too! There’s ally of caves around here and that creek is full of giant, smooth rocks. The water washing over them is just so beautiful.

        Sounds gorgeous, you live in a beautiful area.

        • Jessica October 5, 2016 / 2:41 pm

          Thank you. Yes, it’s like a dream here.

      West Virginia. Mountain momma. Take me home, country roads.

    Love the train tracks! Makes me think that the possibilities are endless and there are many more roads to be traveled.

      Oh, thank you SO much! I was hoping someone would notice that picture. It’s like my favorite one ever. If you look, you can see a perfect outline of my pickup’s shadow! I’ve been trying to get a picture at that crossing for weeks. Then, finally, hit the sun at the right time. :) How lucky!

      I absolutely LOVE what you said. “Endless and more” truly are wonderfully descriptive words. And, may be well timed, too. Tomorrow MAY be a life changer for my family’s path. Your words have almost perfect timing and make me smile with the encouragement that pours out of them. :) Will let you know soon if big changes are on the horizon. :)

    There is nothing better than the backroads! I love how the grasses are changing to their fall color. I love the changes of the seasons, and in life. No matter what situation we are in – it will change.

    • Jessica October 9, 2016 / 9:18 pm

      You got that right sister! I keep hearing how October is the month of change. Best I can tell, that’s right on the money. Backroads rule. The sumac is starting to turn red now and the hickory leaves are turning yellow. So pretty. I bet those grasses are just beautiful.
