We recently had a day to wander the back roads close to home. Traveling down new highways we came across an estate sale sign and had to follow. The trip there was full of anticipation and wonder as to what we would find, and just how far off the beaten path we would go to find it?
We let it unfold before us and took in the beauty of nature and time at every turn.
The sale was pretty much sold out when we arrived, but I was gushing over some beautiful pink roses growing along the house and the homeowner came over and cut me a bouquet. Don't they look lovely against the black console of the truck? The generosity and kindness of the gentleman warmed my heart throughout the day and I smiled every time I opened the door to get in.
Back to the highway and headed no where in particular, we came across a sea of cars along the road. There was a huge car show going on and the entries filled the parking lot of this small town school. We found a space along the road and hiked our way to the show.
Can you imagine trying to park it in the tiny lots now, as I'm sure it was before power steering, and the gas bill for cruising it? But what fun when it happens! Next we spent some time shopping the isles of some antique shops in a sleepy little downtown.
The purchases were few but the treasures were many. Time with Dean and the spirit of adventure will be with us for much longer than stuff. A perfect way to celebrate our anniversary of 23 years of marriage, a treasure for sure.
