Wanderlust: Your Own Backyard


noun wan·der·lust \ˈwän-dər-ˌləst\
  1. :  strong longing for or impulse toward wandering

Too often I forget how absolutely stunning the place I live is, from backyard sunsets bursting in my community to the state park lakeside views that make you forget about the ocean altogether; rural Missouri is beautiful.

The seasons here are wildly unpredictable and sometimes you will see all four jammed into one week, but the rolling hills of northern Missouri in any season set against the backdrop of corn and wheat fields will really make you feel like you’re at home, even if you’re not from here. Snow, sleet, rain, hail, anything looks good blanketing these fields. This place is a farm town paradise, and sometimes I forget that this is what wanderlust is all about: wandering.


So wander around my backyard with me for a few seconds, then let’s go wander around yours! capture5471_436472923108058_178828677_n294971_465102353578448_1419895491_n1001770_476348912453792_1569272304_n14322403_10154567177724066_5532797092314402623_nimg-20120130-00323-2149301_10150870438944066_784317251_na4b3dde2-6113-4343-ba97-9e77b5d3cc55
