Although the thoughts in my head may be a little loud (especially now!), my memory often takes me back to moments in time with such clarity and detail.

This is a spot that is burned into my memory – one of the many stops on our road trip this summer.

It was towards the end of our trip and I knew I was coming home to face the reality of school, frustrations and distractions and if I’m being honest, I wasn’t ready. I didn’t want the summer to end. More specifically, I didn’t want this moment to end.

So peaceful. So serene. So simple.

Glad my memory catalogs moments like this and recalls them frequently.
