Of all the ways to spend my time, off exploring is at the tip top of my favorites list. Especially if that exploration involves fresh air and stillness. There is just something about trekking off into the outdoors and being surrounded by the sights, sounds and smells of nature.

Growing up, we lived right across from a woods, so we often ventured back to explore. I never thought much of it at the time, but now when I return home, traipsing through the trees is one of the first things I want to do. When Tyler and I went home last weekend, I set off with my parents on Saturday evening to explore. We were in search of some goodies for our wreath-making adventure, but I was quickly brought back to all of those memories of years past.

It's amazing how quickly time passes, so make time to explore. Seek out new, remind yourself of old, and learn to appreciate what is. You're always at the perfect age to set off on a new adventure.
