Maybe it's a fascination with what one doesn't have (we can idealize with Instagram). Still, it's hard for me not to think that mountain life is the pretty ideal way of living, and seems to have it all: natural beauty, endless exploration, casual lifestyle, activities galore, and even lakes, cities and quaint towns too.
Thanksgiving is almost here, and it's a time to be with family and hunker down for some great food and company. However, family, to me, isn't just about my kids and husband. It's not even just about my parents, brother, or grandparents. It's also about my aunts, uncles, cousins, and even those once or twice removed.
