We discovered this hidden gem called the Chairy Orchard last week when my niece was visiting. Oh to be young again!
There is this quote that says…”when I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, and I reasoned as a child.” Yet, for me,when I was a child, I spoke, understood, and reasoned like an adult and now that I am an adult, I speak, understand, and reason like a child and an adult would in many cases. I like to keep life adventurous, full of fun, and full of joy. It used to bother me that I was so different and then I realized that I had the best of both worlds all of my life. I consider myself an ‘old soul’ and being an ‘old soul’, I totally understood the fun Chairy Orchard brought to our world. It is a chance to be a little different, to be a little creative, and to enjoy life’s simple pleasures.
I value looking ‘outside of the box’. I give advice that sometimes even surprises me that I thought of it. I think things through and don’t waste time asking why it is, I just accept that it is. When I go out, it’s well thought out on what I want to experience. I see no need to be unnecessarily stressed and find ways to minimize my stress unless it’s there for a good reason. I love meeting new people and I value having deep connections in my relationships. I am a lifelong learner and I don’t get into the latest craze…it usually bores me. I value the company of those much older than I am and am constantly being told that I am such a calm person. I also love and truly understand what it means to give. These are all traits of an ‘old soul.’
In an interview with the women who established Chairy Orchard, they were asked why? What’s it for? What’s it all about? And, there answer was there is no reason. It’s all about having fun and being creative and for others to enjoy and decide what they want to get from it. 🙂
People come to Chairy Orchard for a date, to be proposed to, to be a kid again, and to relax and enjoy a completely different type of fun.
Have a wonderful weekend! I hope you have some fun this Friday enjoying photos from Chairy Orchard.
