You will burn and
you will burn out,
you will be healed
and come back again.
(found on Pinterest)
It’s been almost two weeks since we’ve been back in Philly after spending a long weekend in the Poconos with my family. Or, as we’ve learned they say in Philly, since we’ve been “up the mountains.” Some time has passed but I can still feel the sense of calm that came over me on that short getaway. I can still feel the air, if I try hard enough. Something about that trip brought me so much peace and I hope that some of that comes through my photos.
The quote above is one that I found floating around on Pinterest and that really resonates with me. I feel like we try and try and try hard for so long. And then we burn out. We all do. And we need a break. And I don’t know if it’s just the optimist in me, but I feel like life always gives us one. When it’s ready to and in the way that we need it. Isn’t that great? A weekend in the Poconos gave me just the healing I needed.
Our time was much enjoyed. We relaxed, we porch-sat, we cooked and ate good food and drank good drinks, we mountain-coastered, we celebrated birthdays, we brewery-hopped, we learned to lawn bowl, we hiked and drank coffee out of mugs on hikes, we took in beautiful views. We relaxed.
Just a warning – be prepared for lots of photos! Because I have so many, I am going to share some today and some tomorrow. Enjoy!
