picture this: Saturday

Picture this:

State highway 9, East.

Windows down.

Cloudless sky.

Not cold enough for a jacket, not warm enough for short sleeves.

Trees, older than old, turning the colors of autumn.

Nowhere to be, no reason for driving.

Lady Antebellum’s “American Honey” turned up as loud as the radio will go.

Peaceful, graceful, thankful.

A good smile comes over your face and you sing:

She grew up on a side of the road
Where church bells ring and stong love grows
She grew up good
She grew up slow
Like American Honey

Steady as a preacher
Free as a weed
Couldn’t wait to get goin’
But wasn’t quite ready to leave
So innocent, pure and sweet
American Honey

There’s a wild, wild whisper
Blowin’ in the wind
Callin’ out my name like a long lost friend
Oh I miss those days as the years go by
Oh nothin’s sweeter than summertime
And American Honey

Get caught in the race
Of this crazy life
Tryin’ to be everything
Can make you lose your mind
I just want to go back in time
To American Honey, yeah

There’s a wild, wild whisper
Blowin’ in the wind
Callin’ out my name like a long lost friend
Oh I miss those days as the years go by
Oh nothin’s sweeter than summertime
And American Honey

Gone for so long now
Gotta get back to her somehow
To American Honey

Mmmm yea yea

Oh there’s a wild, wild whisper
Blowin’ in the wind
Callin’ out my name like a long lost friend
Oh I miss those days as the years go by
Oh nothin’s sweeter than summertime
And American Honey.

If you’d like to listen to the song, go here.
Something about a beautiful Saturday makes me wistful for time to stop, slow, not keep going. This song is my Saturday picture this. I decided that this post will begin a new tradition on my blog. Enjoy your weekend!
