Country Roads.. West Virginia

This morning was too much.  Woke to birds singing, sunny skies, and a Starbucks coffee and fresh bagels on the counter of the kitchen, our names carefully placed with a sticky note on each container in the order of the list we had left on the counter the night before.  It's just to much .....
