Love and nature go together as well as Autumn and Logan.
Thank you for inviting me to North Carolina and trusting me with these precious moments.
Thank you for hiking up to Black Balsam Knob with me and helping me up and down the mountain (while in my boot!).
It’s couples like you that remind me how special life is, how enduring love is, and how kindness makes this world a much more beautiful place.
Nature has always had a way of bringing so much insight and peace to my life… maybe it’s nature’s constant state of magnificence and endurance that parallels so many characteristics that we as humans strive for every day… humility, independence, patience, forgiveness, grace, beauty. I find that every time I am in nature I am reminded that we are one…that the characteristics nature shows us are inherent to us as well and that loving our planet is the same as loving ourselves. That all of our choices affect one another – that we are connected. Being on top of Black Balsam Knob as the clouds rolled through was one of the most incredible things I have experienced in my life, my heart pounded with joy and the feeling that this was where I was meant to be all along.
