If you're been following along on Instagram then you know that Danielle and I took a road trip to Nashville last week. We decided that escaping city life was an absolute necessity so we stopped at Cherokee National Forest on the way home for a night in the wilderness. Camping isn't as bad as it's cracked up to be; I'm a huge fan of roasting veggies over an open fire, exploring, and settling down to enjoy the soft breeze with a good book. My phone died, which was the best thing that could have happened. No email, no texts, no distractions. It was as if the "reset" button was pressed, which I've found is an important thing to do every once in a while.
There truly is nothing like raw, uninhibited nature.When I was a kid, I was enamored by cities. The tall buildings would captivate me so much and I would stand in awe of the fact that those towering steel and concrete structures were created by the hands of men. Now, treelines and riverbeds inspire the same childlike wonder in me. Not that men have created such beauty but that we have not destroyed it.
