There's no better time than fall to explore God's green earth! You don't need to book a getaway a million miles away to do so. Whether you realize it or not, you're probably living in the vicinity of a national park. They are all around the United States and tell many different stories of our awesome heritage. You'll find yourself engulfed in the moment and full of awe as you make this exploration of a new oasis. Some parks have caves. Some have mountains. Some have creeks and sand, while others have underground waterfalls. Most of these conservatories offer educational tours and jaw dropping experiences that you didn't even know were in your backyard. This past weekend, I stumbled upon Dunbar Cave in Clarksville, TN with my boyfriend. If you are anything like me, Sunday is your reset day. This is the day I find all means of serenity to make it through the many challenges of the week before they are ever even presented to me. Exploring Dunbar Cave gave me this exhilarating feeling of chills as I examined it's perfect architecture and imagined the awesomeness that had occurred here over many years. It appeased my soul.
Futhermore, going to the park can eliminate or prevent major diseases from occurring or getting worse. A few of those include diabetes, depression, obesity, heart attack, stroke and so many more.

Remember to enjoy the moment and lastly, be safe!
October/Halloween represent the time of scare and fear, yet fun! It's the time of the year when we face our fears and go to that scary haunted farm or haunted house. We travel through dark forest valleys on hayrides. We appease our curiousity by conquering corn mazes. There are so many instances where fear arises, but we somehow take the challenge. We disregard all mental notions of fear instilled in us from the numerous scary movies and television fanatics that make us believe in the supernatural or rare occurrences. As our joy for all things Fall increases, our worry fades. Perhaps, we should all look at life this way!
As we reach the doors of the haunted house, our anxiety increases, however our will to get through it does too. Very few people turn back once they've gotten to the front of the line to enter the halls of horror or whatever chamber they are embarking on. This same thrill occurs when one is in line for the most awesome roller coaster at the theme park. The moral of this is to worry about that moment. Don't succumb to the negative emotions of today. Get excited and go through with it. In life, we don't call it going through for a reason, you're going to come out on the other side; just as you've done in that corn maze or that haunted house.
Therefore, don't worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. -Matthew 6:34

So, let me give you the scoop on the awesome girls who run my world over the next series of post.
The things I write about are the love of my life and the life of my love!
