Regained Happiness

Life has a funny way of creeping up on you doesn't it? Things change so fast and all of a sudden you find yourself not having the time to do the things that make you happy. Ever since me and Craig got together, going for drives was sort of our thing. Just hopping in the car and driving. Not knowing where we were going or where we'd end up.

At some point we just....stopped. And I guess we forgot how happy it made us.

This past weekend though, we hopped back in that car and just went.
































The freezing air made my eyes water but the scenery was too gorgeous to pass up. We drove for hours, laughed and regained our misplaced happiness.

don't let what makes you happy fall by the wayside.

  3. I love the final line of this post. You're completely right, we can often forget the simple, beautiful things that put smiles on our faces! So glad to hear you've returned to driving out and admiring scenery with your other half :)

  5. These photos are so lovely! Also, I love the idea of jumping in your car and just going somewhere, it's something I've always been too scared to try but I hope to one day.

    1. Oh you should!! Even if you only venture a half an hour away from home it'll feel like you're on some great adventure! :)
