This next picture is the view from our backyard. If you were standing on the deck, you had an unobstructed view of the mountains! Sometimes in the fall Tony and I would sit on the deck and look at all the beautiful fall colors when the leaves had changed! The air would be crisp, and the view was amazing. It was so nice.
This next photo is a fishing hole Tony and I used to fish weekly. It was in Big Cottonwood Canyon and it was only about a 15 minute drive from our house to this spot! It was so amazing there. We saw snakes (yikes), Deer, and Moose while fishing! We would bring our chairs and a lunch and spend hours there. I can't believe there were days that I would complain I didn't want to go! What I would give to be able to pack up and go to a fishing spot like that now! Beautiful!
I was actually surprised at times when I would think to myself OOOHH I love this why didn't I appreciate it more when I lived here???
Soo, this post is just a reminder for myself to take a moment daily and acknowledge the beauty and blessings around me. I want to be present in the moment and acknowledge the good now!
