"A photo of my little man, once a week, every week, in 2015"
 
Reece, we are spending more and more time in the woods these days, that happens this time of year, there is just so much happening. Birds are returning, wild foods growing, chipmunks and squirrels scattering about, and trees just calling to be climbed. We can't help but spend as much time as we can among Mother Nature and all her gifts, it makes us both happy, and strengthens our connection, to each other and to nature. Sharing this time with you means the world to me, I hope you know that.

    1. Thank you Carie, so lovely of you to say that. I am so happy that he loves being out there as much as I do. It really is a place where we connect in a totally different way.

    1. I hope you are enjoying your time in the woods, and by the seaside. Funny enough, I was craving a visit to the water yesterday, and we went to the lake for a picnic. It was exactly what I needed, the soothing sounds as the waves hit the shore and vast expanse of water that feels somewhat overwhelming, yet calming at the same time.

      Missed you too my friend, so happy to see you in your space again. xo

  8. In my experience, a childhood spent in nature stays with you forever. Even at work a little while ago we were discussing which ones of us spent a lot of time in the 'bush' as a child and which ones hadn't - the ones who had, never lost their love for it and in my opinion had a much different appreciation for the world around them. Quite a gift to be giving xx

    1. That is so wonderful to hear Chrisy, thanks for sharing. It is definitely something I think would be hard to lose, I would think the appreciation would just keep growing. At least I hope so :)

      Thank you Chrisy, it is a gift I am so very happy to share with him. xo
