With so much going on in the world, it’s important to embrace all that’s worthwhile in your life. It keeps us sane, especially during the holidays.

It’s also a time of year that brings reflection, asserting context to the here and now along with the ensuing emotional spectrum. (Embracing what’s worthwhile keeps us sane!)

This year, I am remembering my drives to NC to visit family for the holidays. I’ve posted this gallery of phone pics taken from the road, many from PA and Shenandoah Valley, VA.
