Cruising on a Sunny Afternoon.


I had such a fun day with Hubs today.  He woke my lazy self up at 9:45 Am and told me to get dressed.
He had a plan.
It was supposed to be a chilly fall'ish day but it was so perfect for cruising with my top down.  (The PT Cruiser Convertible top, silly).
This man of mine was on a mission.  He drove me around for about six hours, with the GPS finely tuned, hunting down "new to me" thrift stores.  (One of my obsessions)
We headed up towards the Laurel Highlands of Pennsylvania.  The scenery alone was worth the price of admission. 
We are blessed to live in a spectacular state.  Pennsylvania is full of mountains, forests, lakes, streams and rivers.
We drove through  little towns that looked like they were lost in time.  We passed dirt driveways held old pick-up trucks and tractors.  Little well kept homes were proudly flying the flag in their perinneal flowered manicured yards. 
Our trip took us through a few"Main Streets" in small towns towns.  In some areas it was obvious the economy had taken its toll with so many empty storefronts. In other places, Small Town America flourished.
I love days like this, just Hubs and I, with the radio playing, him singing, me humming and cruising.
We found a few new thrift stores.  It was fun to search for a treasure. (for me, that is gaudy, sparkly, dazzling, old tyme costume jewelry).
No material treasures were found in the shops, but I know my true treasure is my Hubs.
Thank you for another perfect day.
I love you<3
