Winding Roads and Tall Trees

While driving to an appointment the other day, my husband and I drove down one of the lovely little winding roads in our area of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Along our drive, I saw running parallel to my road was new construction.  The construction was apparently a new byway which will straighten out the road.

They were tearing up the hills and had removed large sections of mature trees.  I always wonder at what cost we do these things.

It seems this generation is always in a hurry to get somewhere.  We lost the beauty along the way and the time we took to notice it.

Hey, I'm all for making roads safer, but wish there was still a way to save the trees and keep the ways of enjoying them with our families.

Happy Valentines! ;)

Valentines is always a special time for me, not only a time to celebrate the love of my Sweetheart, but also one of my daughters and I share birthdays in this month.

I cannot help but be overfilled with love and gratitude and I express it with decorations and treats for those I love.

I hope you have a wonderful Valentines Day also and are able to celebrate it with love and gratitude!  ;)
