Vermont and New Hampshire Barns From My Window

And my favorite barn that we've seen so far.  It wasn't the prettiest, but I loved its endurance and character!
And while I'm writing, can I say how good it is to be back?  When we were in PA, we had no cell phone service and very limited internet.  As in, I could not even read Pioneer Woman's blog.  So I didn't bother doing much posting there.  I'll have to see if I can go back and cover what we did see and do there sometime.

I have missed blogging so much though.  I told Nathan tonight that it truly helps to cultivate gratitude for my life when I blog.  When I'm going throughout the day, I can easily fall into a mindlessness about what we are doing.  When I look at the pictures and write the words to capture the day, it makes me stop and be very mindful of this wonderful life we are living right now and all of the neat things we see each day.  It's good for my soul!

Living the life in Vermont!

Love all the photos of the barns - awesome!
Also, absolutely agree with you, need to blog to be reminded about how blessed we are.
You're really traveling at the moment!

Thank you so much, Donna. As always, you are so encouraging. I'm happy to show you how I did it when we get back to FL. It's the least I can do after all of the pickleball lessons you gave to us!

Wonderful barns -- I'm glad you're catching us up. I love your description of what blogging does for you -- that's basically why I do it too! Thanks.
