Beauty in the Most Simple Places

Last week I wrote about how I love living in rural America... The nostaglia of a small town, the peacefulness, the quietness, no traffic. 


But sometimes living in rural America, we get numb to the beauty that is around us. We quickly grow accustomed to where we live. And we forget to see what's around us.

I was reminded this last weekend the beauty that is created in the most simple of places. Living in rural America, often times I fly past all the corn fields, the pastures with calves that grow every day.. I don't spend enough time soaking in the beauty that is around me.

Hopping in the car, the windows rolled down, wind in your hair, sun shining on your face... Pulling over on the side of a dirt road, taking a few steps into a field just to soak in the sound of the crops blowing in the wind. (p.s. Check out our flax now!!) 

 

There's honestly nothing better.

I hope you take some time this week to appreciate beauty in the most simple places... Instead of blowing by that field of cattle or that field of corn you drive by 10x a week, take some time to stop.

 

Stop. Soak it all in. And find beauty in the most simple of places.
