One we picked this last year, in our new home state was weekly hikes. And we have been stuck with it. Here we find ourselves with vacation time and what are we doing with it? Hiking more than once a week....we're seriously out on trails for an hour+ every single day. I'm kind of amazed. It feels so good to be outside this much, to be active together, to see the beautiful stuff we are catching. Today when we hiked, we watched a coyote catch mice in a field, found elfin saddle mushrooms, and watched the sunset over the rolling green hills through a lattice of oak trees. The world is incredibly beautiful and it feels so wonderful to be united as a couple in our getting out there in it.
- Our kids still complain....every single week. We just go anyway.
- Sometimes we go while having an argument or with hurt feelings between us as a pair.
- We have messed up and missed our hikes...we just boomerang back into the habit as soon as we can.
- It has never been a waste. Its always a total balm.
