I felt 17 again.
driving around back roads, with the windows down and nowhere to be.
no sitter on the clock.
in my husbands hometown.
you are always 17 in your hometown, as the song says.
we opened up a huge accordion book of my old mix (pre-ipod) cd’s and went to town.
something about those old cd’s labeled, “finals 04” or “camp mix 00” “for my girls”, well they just do something in my soul. they take me back. they fill my head and heart with memories and they make me want to just sing along.
something about tonight made me feel free.
free to dream, free to relish in the memories, not of “the best times of my life” in a way that makes it sound like the best days are over, but just thinking about the good old days.
while also dreaming about the future. the best is yet to come.
Hey, I'm Wynne!
Hi, friend! First, I truly am so giddy that you are here. I want you to know I believe in you and all the ways you are growing towards living a more intentional life. I genuinely hope you are encouraged from our time together here.
A little about me, I’m a type 7 on the enneagram, a total extrovert + people lover, entrepreneur, connector, storyteller, people gatherer, and passionate wife, mama + friend. I feel most alive when I’m exploring new places and surrounded by people I love. Give me a day in the outdoors disconnected from wifi, and I am a happy girl. I run on oat milk lattes, Jesus, gratitude journaling and kitchen dance parties with my four kids.
Welcome, come on in!
I just pulled up a bunch of songs on YouTube the other day that took me back to ’03-’04, so I can totally relate to this! But you are so right, those were definitely not “the best times” but fun to look back on, the best is definitely yet to come!
Love finding old CD’s – Brings back so many sweet memories – just by the sound from a song!
