A Drive In The Sun...

For the past few days, the weather has been amazing! Today, it really feels like spring...the sun is shining, it's warm outside, clear blue sky, and most importantly...quiet! The only thing I could hear right now is the chirping of the birds outside my window.

I woke up this morning and decided to do something that I haven't done in almost a year....I went for a drive! Instead of lying in bed till noon like I usually do, I got into my car, opened the sunroof, turned up the radio and drove slowly to nowhere...
It felt great...I was driving aimlessly, with warm fresh air coming from the sunroof of my car, and my favorite songs blasting through the speakers...The scenery was great, the hills on the side of the highway were covered in green grass and spring flowers..

I found myself near Starbucks, so I decided to pull into the drive-thru, order a cold Caramel Mocha with extra caramel, and continue my drive, taking a different road on the way back....

I love days like these...I haven't had the chance to go on a drive like that in almost a year...
I remember last spring when my dad was sick, I used to wake up on the weekends and just drive around to clear my head, hoping the sunny days and warm weather would help me deal with everything. But after he passed away on the first day of the summer, I just stopped going on drives, and basically spent my weekends sleeping in late, depressed and never in the mood to do anything....

But today I woke up wanting to go on a drive...so maybe all I need is more days like these...sunny, warm and beautiful to help me go on with my life...
