The rewards of stopping.

We were on our way home.  We had spent the morning tubing in the snow, had stopped to eat lunch, and were heading down, trying to beat rush hour traffic home.  And then we saw it.  A gorgeous vista.  Snow kissed trees.  Fog cascading down from the mountain top.  And we stopped.  We stopped to take it all in.  So glad we did.

Inspired by the rain.

I love how the air smells after a good rain.  Clean and crisp.  I love how after the rain colors seem brighter and the trees and grass are full of the sparkle of raindrops.   It rained all night, and this morning the sun was shining.  I was inspired.
