enjoying the ride.

by @according2kelly on February 11, 2008

life can be busy at times, if not hectic. i can handle the busy, it’s the hectic-ness that overwhelms me. i’ve got a list of to-do’s that have been piling up & it’s high-time i get around to putting little check marks in the boxes. so don’t worry if i don’t post over the next couple of days… i’m still alive & kicing, just taking some time to clear my head. gordon b. once said:

life is like an old-time rail journey – delays, sidetracks, smoke, dust, cinders, and jolts, interspersed only occasionally by beautiful vistas and thrilling burst of speed. the trick is the thank the lord for letting you have the ride.

over the next week or so, i’m hoping to simply take some time, admire the views & learn to really enjoy the ride…. be back soon.

*pictures like these leave me wishing i could pack my bags & jump on the next plane. no mater how you travel – plane, train or automobile, europe is awfully pretty. i’m currently dreaming & re-living my days spent in ireland & switzerland.

I've always loved that quote. How fun that you've done some traveling. I just barely got a passport last week for the first time in my life. Just in case. So I'll dream along with you....

Mmmmmm.... I love me some Ireland, Kelly! I watched a movie last night set in Ireland, and it made me 'homesick' for it. It is sooooo gorgeous!!!
