It has been almost two weeks since I left D.C. for my home in the mountains. I can hardly believe it. Yesterday as I ran a bunch of errands I thought to myself how lucky I am to live here. Every place has a view. Every day the mountains look different. Coming out of Barnes and Nobles yesterday I stopped and was overwhelmed by the contrast of the mountains and the retail stores. This man stopped and asked if I was new here. I said yes, he laughed and told me he had been here almost thirty years and was blown away by the views on a daily basis. It never got old for him. Now I ask you, how nice is that? I have found the people who live here want to be here. It certainly makes them a lot happier. I hope you are having a "happy day".
