Do you have that one road/freeway/bridge that connects your life?

You know what I'm talking about, the one you find yourself on weekly or even daily? The one that you could drive with your eyes closed? Ok maybe not that well, but it's the one you spend your 'life' on. The one you know exactly how many minutes it's going to take you to get to and from where you need to go. The one you know exactly when to switch lanes to avoid getting stuck behind the traffic line. The one that is comforting.

I have one. I know it well. When I was making the drive from the old apartment to the new house on Sunday, I couldn't help but think, this is the road that connects my life. It connects my past to my present. It connects us to both our families and jobs. It connected us to each other when I was going to college and when Bryan lived with his dad in high school. It's the road we'll probably be driving on for the rest of our life.

Do you ever take a minute on that road to just breathe and give thanks? Without that road I would be lost. Literally, I can't navigate back roads very well lol Maybe I'm getting a little deep here for  a Wednesday morning, it's just been on my heart since the move. It's funny the little things we depend on every day.

So, thank you little freeway for getting me where I need to go, knowing me so well, and always steering me in the right direction. I'll see you later ;)


  1. I-90 (or is it I-5 - the one that goes through Snoqualmie Pass) and Highway 18. I may not drive it myself, since I can't drive, but it's been my "connection" between home and school since I graduated from high school. Eventually it'll be replaced by whatever roads and highways the bus route I'm on takes when I go to work everyday. Or just the rail of the Link Light Rail or commuter train. (Hey, they'll be connections between work and home.)

  2. Such a great and true post! My drive in and back from work is my time to just be!

  3. I love this! I have totally thought about this before....I would be completely lost without that road that leads me to my family, home, and work! Great post!

  4. I loved this! I will love "my road" a little more the next time we meet. :)
