By now…if you read my posts very often…I’m sure that you have figured something out about me. Simplicity, to me, is lovely. I find beauty and peace in the simple things in life. Too often I find myself overwhelmed by…too much. I find delight in open spaces and beautiful old trees. I love the smell of freshly plowed dirt and delight in a new sprout coming up from the earth. Those things just seem especially close to the Father…you know? Of course you do.
Sometimes in blogging…I feel a little pressured to join the status quo. Then I realize that it just wouldn’t be me. Don’t get me wrong. I am in love with the blogs of others. Plus…they too all have their own personal stamp. I think that I just feel, at times,that I need to go above and beyond what I really love, and that would be a shame. If anything…I want your experience here at Along the Dirt Road to be real. Being real…is very important to me. Ask anyone who knows me, whatcha see…is whatcha get. 😉 Sometimes …simplicity.
During Spring Break…we were on our way home and I asked my husband if we could take a little detour. He was fine with that…good man that he is. This little detour…tugged at my heart in an amazing way. The lovely simplicity of it all is beautiful. Maybe I just have an old soul. ( I do seem to really hit it off with the elderly.)
Have a wonderful evening, sweet Dirt Roaders. It’s supposed to snow here…so I have a big pot of beans bubbling on the stove. Cornbread and fried potatoes to be made later. I’m going to enjoy the lovely simplicity of it all. I hope that you find a way to do the same.

You just stay far away from the status quo and do what’s you, pretty please! We can get all that other stuff at other blogs. We can only get YOU right here.
Awww…..Kelly…thank you so much. Will do! 🙂 Sometimes I find myself second guessing….but I’m drawn back to what I love. Thank you for the vote! 😉 k.
