I had a random urge to go visit this mountainside of yellow wildflowers, it felt more like a pregnancy craving-you know the ones that can't be satisfied until you are actually fulfilling it-but this one was my most rewarding cravings of all time.
It was a car ride full of some of my favorite people, laughs, stories, sleepiness, a bag of Gardettos (while picking through the bag only eating our favorites), and tiny tunes coming from the back seat from Cooper- "I love EeeBee, a bushel and a peck.." as he serenaded his aunt; the song he sang to me went a little more like this "I can't like my mom.." which my response was "that's okay sometimes I don't like people either." Maybe, just maybe a little too truthful for a three year old....
We rolled into town not knowing where we were going only that we were looking for yellow flowers. We knew a road name that could give us hints of where to look, but we were more focused on the dim lit yellow patches on the mountains-that is where we were headed. As we got closer the patches became more definite and detailed with each flower offering a little something of its own to the yellow patches we saw so far away. It was something so amazing, something that I could only imagine in my sisters paintings, but it was actually touchable right in front of me. We spent our time soaking it in, picnicking, and taking pictures so we wouldn't forget our day in the mist of the yellow mountainside with our fawns.
