and I'll tell ya why. (I've been writing this for a while now and i'm sorry if its a little jumbled. I'm trying not to edit it too much and just letting it be like it came out :)
Over the past few years I've developed such a love for mountains. really any kind. I love big green rolling hills also but I really love mountains. I live in a state that doesn't have any real mountains. Some areas having some hills but not enough to fill my love ;] We visited some friends in Virgina a while ago and they live in a beautiful huge house nestled in the the Blue Ridge mountains. I can't remember much because I was sick but I do remember walking outside and seeing the beautiful mountains. It was so peaceful and calm. I hope we get a chance to go there again, I would love to really soak them in and photograph the whole place.
They remind me of how great and mighty our God is. A refuge. such a strong tower. Constant. Always there. Such a part of my heart.
There's something about the country and mountains that is so calming and peaceful to me. I'm not really a city girl, with all the hustle and bustle. I would be happy with some country side and my camera in my hand. When we go visit my mom's family in the country and amidst huge hills, I feel content. When I see pictures of mountains or see them in person, I seem to rediscover myself. When I feel really bad [physically or emotionally] I long to see the mountains and their beauty. My mom says I could be a hermit, honestly I could be. Don't get me wrong I LOVE the people in my life. love. But I do have my times where I love to be alone. I'm not afraid or weak or anything. I'm content being alone sometimes. Maybe that's why I love mountains so much. They are strong, beautiful and a reflection of God's power and majesty.

they also say some sort of adventure or fun. :) I love nature period. And different countires and their landscapes. someday I would love to travel the world and explore. And photograph it. I dream of doing that.
