{Better Than Therapy}

Saturday, January 15, 2011

Speaking of therapy.... I am totally going to have to make t-shirts with
the saying on them from my last post; 
"Who needs therapy? I blog," or  maybe "I don't need therapy. I blog."
Oh, that would be good, so good. 
Blogging might just be my first form of therapy. The second? Well, that's easy.
If you read here often you know one of my most favorite things to do is to get out and take a drive by myself. Let me stress the BY MYSELF part. Grab some coffee, your camera, and your keys.
Tell your husband you will see him in about two hours.
Turn the music up loud, or leave it off if you need the quiet and just drive. Anywhere. 
Stop at a park, an ice cream stand, a cemetery, a field of flowers, a cute store front, railroad tracks...
 or don't stop at all. Just drive.
 Often I head towards the country and never even get out of my car. Barns, horses, cornfields, clouds, tractors...they can all be snapped right from my seat. Have fun. Come back home completely relaxed with some cool pictures. This is as good as therapy people, take my word  for it.
Make the time for it, it's so worth it.
You can thank me later.

I hope you all have a great weekend. We have a 3-day weekend....wahooo!
 Yesterday we were out of town all day car shopping and we will be gone again today
so after this I am ready for some serious relaxing.
 Oh, and a Krispy Kreme donut before donuts are banned from my diet as of tomorrow.
Happy Saturday!


  1. Love these pictures. Taking pictures of the countryside are my favorite!!
    Maybe you should market your saying...It's great! :)

  2. Oh, that DOES sound like good therapy!! :D Love the shots. Have a GREAT weekend, Amy!

  3. Mmmm hmmmmm
    Sounds good to me. Two hours? Maybe 4 so I can stop for a grown up lunch.

  4. Oh, how I need a drive by myself!!!!! I'm noticing lately how little time I get to myself and I think I REALLY need it. Time to invest in a babysitter (husband is a workaholic and works eve's and weekends along with his 40 hr/week job..ugh). Have a lovely long weekend.
