I have discovered that the more I travel and meet new people, the more I understand that the best things in life aren't “things.” For me the best things in life are waking up in the morning and living another day. I am grateful to be able to spend time with my elders, and listen to the stories that their family has passed on to them. It's being able to laugh endlessly with your family and friends, and realizing how lucky you are to have them in your life. It's being able to watch the sunrise and sunset every day, and not know what color the sky will be that night.
This past week I went to the mountains in North Carolina. The mountains are hands down my favorite thing about North Carolina. On Thursday we dedicated the whole day to hiking. We went to different waterfalls. Then on our way back we drove on the Blue Ridge Parkway and watched the sunset.
Here are some pictures from visiting Mingo Falls in North Carolina. xo, N
