Sharing the outdoors with my nephews and niece and creative ways to play outside with kiddos.
“Just remember, you can do anything you set your mind to, but it takes action, perseverance, and facing your fears.” ~ Gillian Anderson Friday Favorites It has been a hot second since I did a Friday Favorite’s post.

“Holy darkness, blessed night Heaven’s answer hidden from our sight As we await you, O God of silence We embrace your holy night” ~ Holy Darkness Broken records I don’t need to continue to sound like a broken record and lament about how busy I am or how crazy life is. You ALL can infer that based on my lack ….
“May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous, leading to the most amazing view.

“The most important thing in the world is family and love.” ~ John Wooden Delays and Anxiety Last week I headed home and as you read here, travel was a nightmare, but Delta legit wooed me, letting me wait in the Sky Lounge, security was a breeze, and of course PEET’S! (Seriously they need to change their name and add ….
“Hiking in undiscovered places is a lot of fun.” ~ Karolina Kurkova Winter Hiking I get asked A LOT about Winter hiking. Most people think I am crazy and I concur for even undertaking the freezing feat. Hiking isn’t always enjoyable, even in warmer months, why would I want to torture myself when it is sub zero out?

“In the depth of winter I finally learned that there was in me an invincible summer.” ~ Albert Camus The Cold Never Stopped me Anyway The sub-zero temps and the creeping crud were not going to stop me from soaking in the beauty of the White Mountains.
