Picnics...in short, we love them. There is something so special about eating outside under a tree, by the lake or on the side of a trail sitting on a blanket or two, enjoying a lovely meal with Mama Earth.
Reece and I head out for a picnic at least two, sometimes three or four times a week. Whenever we hike there is a pack of food that comes with us. If we plan a little visit to the lake, we pack some food. Pretty much anytime we go out I will find an excuse to stop somewhere special so we can eat, picnic style.
On Sunday night as I was preparing dinner, Justin poked his head in from outside to ask if we were eating on the front porch or the back deck. I thought for a minute and then said, neither, we are going to eat at a secret spot tonight.
So I packed up the dinner I cooked, we grabbed a few things and headed to the conservation area. A few months ago I found a lovely little spot at the conservation area. I have been visiting it regularly since, always alone. On Sunday I took Justin and Reece, and we had a lovely dinner time picnic there.
It was so simple, yet so full of beauty, love and family. We enjoyed our meal, took a little hike and found some raspberries for dessert.
It was the perfect evening and I know we will be visiting my secret spot again soon for a dinner time picnic.
