Something amazing happened last Friday.
A sunflower field.
I'm not kidding when I say I literally started geeking out. I looked over to Brett wide-eyed and before I even knew it, he was turning the car around and pulling into a little pebble lane that ran along side of the sunflowers. We drove down this little lane and I was completely in awe at how gigantic this sunflower field was. About half way down, we parked the car, jumped out, and I literally raced over to the sunflowers. I had the biggest, geekiest smile on my face for the entire time we were there. We had to have taken over 100 photos. The sun was starting to set, providing the most perfect lighting for this moment. I'm pretty sure the exact words "this is God's anniversary gift to us!" came out of my mouth on more than one occasion.
It may seem trivial to you, but I have been dreaming of coming across a sunflower field for years. I've even gone as far as googling locations of potential sunflower fields nearby, but never came up with any results. Taking a photo in front of a sunflower field has been on my "life list" for a long time. And last Friday, I finally got to cross that goal off my list.
It was seriously one of the best days ever!*
