Romantic Road Shots with Destiny

“I want to go on a road trip, just you and me. The highway, the radio, the blue sky, the backroads, and with our windows down, we’ll talk about everything and nothing. We’ll sing our hearts out, and we’ll make memories that we’ll never forget. Just you and me…” -Anonymous via Wordporn
