In the Woods

Since Jonathan and I first met, one of our favorite activities together has been to get outside and go on an adventure. With the addition of the two little ones, that's become more challenging (especially during the cold months), but we still love to be outside and to go for a walk when the opportunity presents itself.

We're blessed that there are several beautiful parks near where we live now and we're hoping that this will be true of our next home as well. On more than one occasion, we've taken advantage of the woods nearby for picnics, walks, or even to snap a few photos. Though we live in a suburb, we love this area for the diversity of activities, especially the ones that we've enjoyed since we first started dating like exploring the great outdoors.

*Since the events of last Friday, I have read so many lovely blogger tributes to the sweet little lives that were lost. As a mother, I'm still trying to process how someone could intentionally harm a kindergartner and as we will be putting Nathaniel into school this coming fall, it hits especially close to home. My heart goes out to all the parents who won't be able to tuck their little children into bed this Christmas and I would encourage all of you, parents or not, to say a little prayer for those families.

  1. I'm a little jealous of all your dates, lately! I can't remember the last time we had a date. Maybe something we can remedy soon! ;)

    1. We try to do one overnight away from the kids each month, but we have definitely had more than normal lately with looking at houses and having people watch the kids during those times. On a couple of occasions, we've been able to grab a cup of coffee or just spend a little time together after checking out a house so we've definitely enjoyed that!
