It is no secret that being outdoors is a priority around here. Like most, we love the fresh air, sunshine, and the chance to capture  an ominous sunset or wildflower bloom.  We also love the simple notion that everyday life can be a front row ticket to something greater if you grab it, if you watch for it.   Travel offers unique exploration, but a wander around local gardens and neighborhood parks can inspire you to enjoy the outdoors as well.  Pay attention, and be inspired not by what you seek, and instead what you might find.

Love to be amazed.                                                                                                                            If I had influence with the good fairy, I would ask that her gift to each child be a sense of wonder so indestructible that it would last throughout life. – Rachel Carlson                       


Love a good walk.                                                                                                                              In every walk with the outdoors we receive far more then we seek.fullsizeoutput_42ed

Love your memories.                                                                                                                     We had no idea we were creating memories. We thought we were just having fun. fullsizeoutput_2476

Love what’s next.                                                                                                                 Sometimes not knowing is delicious ambiguity. fullsizeoutput_725

Love the outdoors.                                                                                                                        Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet, and the winds long to play with your hair.
