Grateful for 'N'ature

N is for Nature

How does the saying go? Look at your calendar and checkbook and that is a summary of your values and what's truly important to you. When I look back on our vacations and how we spend our 'free' time (and money) it most always includes an adventure in nature. We are drawn to be out in it like magnets. It's where we connect, discover and recharge.

Our map is thoroughly tagged with places to visit and areas to explore that allow us to reconnect with the most basic of beauties. I am grateful for the abundance of natural glory and the appreciation my kiddos are developing for it. I hope we can preserve it for eons to come.

The picture above is from our houseboating trip to Lake Powell last summer. We had the best time, completely remote and totally immersed in all that is so purely natural.

Neighbor. I have a great set of neighbors who are just like family. We help each other with kids, kids birthday parties, forth of July parades,christmas morning breakfast, and holding on to each others UPS packages. We see each other more than family and some might enjoy more. I'm lucky to have a great gruop around us. It takes a village as they say.
