This past weekend found Ben and me with a pair of friends in the middle of nature. It was a perfect weekend getaway and I already want to go back. I thought I'd share a few photos, and one of the journal entries I wrote while we were there.
Right now all I hear is the occasional branch breaking, the soft chirp of the crickets, the sad cry of a lone bird. Life seems less complicated right now. Like the worries that wait for me are not as big and scary as I thought, but rather small irritations that will take care of themselves.
I'm here, and I'm happy. God willing, I'll be back in a year with a baby in tow.
That makes me really excited - yes having a healthy baby - but showing the baby all the wonders nature holds. Introducing him or her to hiking, and learning to love and respect the outdoors.
I can't wait.
