I'm from Fort Lauderdale, FL. Growing up I have always lived by a beach and haven't taken in consideration that natural resources are all around us. This redbud tree reminds me of the first time when my family and I were traveling to Kentucky. I remember being amazed at how much land and trees were around. We stopped at a gas station and I looked out to this field and there was a row of trees that had pink and white flowers on them. It was so beautiful how they were placed and it seemed to just be peaceful out there. This tree is important to me because it reminds me of a wonderful trip with my family but also showed me how bright and beautiful my future could be when I move to Kentucky to start a new journey of my own as an adult.
