Everyday Inspirations


~ our world ~


Last weekend I was in Illinois and Iowa for a graduation. It was my first trip to the Midwest and I had the typical, predictable response of a girl who has been raised next to gigantic mountains:

"It's so flat!"

Flat, yes, but charming. And just as I imagined -- fields and fields and fields of corn, silos, whitewashed farmhouses. And the colors! I wish I could bottle up the beauty of the reds, oranges, and yellows. The area was experiencing an absolutely perfect autumn weekend.

It was lovely to experience a new part of my country for the first time and incredibly inspiring to be surrounded by the simple beauty of it.

Have a happy weekend!
