Mountain Dreams

We headed down to Leura that morning.

We wanted to be with each other for a couple of hours before we headed off to our social affairs. Time together can get pretty scarce these days. We work during the week and have to see our families and friends in the time we have off. Adventures featuring just him and I are limited.

As we drove, the city air faded away and the clean crispness of the mountains revealed itself and washed against our faces. The sun peeked out behind the clouds every so often revealing a blue mountain haze in the horizon. Again, I was left in awe of this beautiful country.

We ventured around the town, stopping for some french toast and coffee and losing ourselves in among the vintage trinkets at the markets. We took a walk down a deserted path which I was sure led to a magical place. We didn't make it to the end. I think it was never ending; perhaps a spell cast upon it by magical creatures to keep intruders like us out.

So we headed to the lookout instead and stared upon the blue. We talked about how we would like to own a home here one day, a place we could bring our children, a place where we could explore, which we could call our own.

"...can we make that happen?" I asked

"I will make sure of it" He replied, kissing my forehead.
P.s Happy 100th post to me!

  23. Sam! I can't even begin to describe how beautiful this post is! Your words are so well written.
    Your Beau is really great with a camera! The photos of you are just gorgeous, I love love love the one under the soy candles photo, you look stunning.

    It's funny because when I read your posts, comments or e-mails, you have always reminded me of one of my closest friends, your passion in your faith, your kindness and your flare of creativity have always just really made me think of her. And then I saw that photo where you are holding Stephen's hand and your ring is identical to the one she always wears. It might sounds a bit silly but I don't think stuff like that is a coincidence. I'm positive I was meant to know you :)

    1. Babe, this actually made me smile so much, perhaps even tear up a little bit. It's been so lovely to have met you in this blogosphere that I love so much. I never thought I could make such wonderful friends over a medium such as this but I have learnt otherwise and it's a wonderful feeling.

      I would love to meet this friend of yours. From what you've described she sounds amazing ;) just like you. I'm definitely going to come down and visit you this year if that's okay. Perhaps in the chilly winter months?

    1. Thanks Rach, though it's nowhere near perfect and I don't want people to think that. However, the camera definitely adds a 'fairytale' filter onto our lives I will admit.
