On Thursday, my best friend Kacie and I grabbed her pup and escaped from the "city life" for a little bit.
We are from a town where there is no stoplight and the nearest mall is 45 minutes away. The nearest Walmart or Wegmans is 30 minutes.We grew up with plenty of beautiful nature around, though.
Now, we both live in far more populated suburbs. We have been missing the peace and quiet of being surrounded by nature for a while and well...we were getting pretty antsy. Kacie knew of this trail right in the midst of what I thought was a busy area. She pulled over and there we were....alone with the trees. Did I mention it was about 12 degrees on this day that we decided to go for our little walk? But, the sky was clear and that was all that mattered.
It is so refreshing to just take a step back from life to slow down and soak up the beauty of mother nature.
Have you escaped to nature lately?
