One thing that I always feel when I am able to getaway or take a short trip, is that the days are so much richer and fuller. Time seems to slow and the clock doesn't move so much each time I look over. This is one of my favorite things about being away ... it makes me feel that I can take my time with things ... never having to be in a rush like most days in our normal lives.
We've been thinking a lot recently about living life in a more basic and uncomplicated way ... enjoying the simple pleasures life can bring. They always seem to be the things that bring us the most joy at the right times ... a warm shower when we are cold ... ice in your drink when it's too hot outside ...when you get to lay in your bed at the end of a long day. These are all such simple things, but bring us so much happiness when we actually focus on them.
For the July 4th weekend we found an old homestead cabin in Joshua Tree on Airbnb. We wanted to learn and see how some of the people were living life more simply down south in the desert. It was so nice and inspiring to see this change from the city. Rob and I would spend so much time just talking about what we would do and how we would do it if we tried life here in that way from time to time. Here are a few photos I captured over the days we spent in our little different world. Can't wait to share more photos from our road trip ... ;)
