Sometimes we forget that we aren't trees and complain that we're stuck. People in our town complain a lot that there's nothing to do, that it's boring. Truth is that we live in an area that is driving distance to larger towns and interesting locations. So today we skipped town and drove an hour and a half to check out another area. It wasn't that it was wildly different but just getting out of the norm was nice. We shopped a bit with our Christmas gift cards and had a late lunch at a restaurant not in our town. I'm grateful that we have quick access to areas that allow us to feel like we've "gotten away" for the day.
