hey there!
good morning!

we've been having some incredible weather lately...
what they are calling "unseasonably warm temperatures".
well... how nice of the weather... thanks... we'll take it.


on saturday we decided to head up to the mountain for a picnic.
so... i pulled out the basket...
began cutting up some fresh fruit...
made some finger sandwiches...
baked some cookies...
NOT...


no way... really... we ran by subway & headed up.
it was kind of chilly up there but... we found a sunny spot & it was perfect.


lil bit was all to eager to explore.
she could have spent all day up there.


at one point as she was marching along with her stick she said...
"awwwweee... now this is what wilderness is all about"!
so funny!
it IS pretty neat up there...
just fun to hear to how it makes her feel.
she was having quite the time.

now this... is me right before i decided to do something not so smart.
not sure if all of a sudden i thought i was a monkey but...
let's just say it started as a climb... 
and i'll let yall know how BIG the bruise becomes... okay!

 
there was so much to explore... 
we wanted to stay but one of us wanted to go...


hmm... wonder who that could have been.
bless her heart... she just wasn't in the adventure mood this time.

 
so we loaded up & headed back down... slowly... i couldn't get enough!
honestly... the aspens were just gorgeous!
they seemed to literally SING autumn.


and here we are again...
facing a new week.
a new path...
one we have yet to walk.

the week will unfold & time will certainly pass...
no matter how we may want it to slow...
time will pass...
there's just no stopping it.
i for one need a week of stepping firmly...
with some gusto...
some extra umph.
and i don't neccesarily mean in getting things done...
more in stepping firmly... with my heart.
really being aware of every step...
truly present with what's under foot & giving myself the time to embrace it!
 
listening better...
hugging longer...
singing louder...
trying harder.
stepping firmly... and embracing every precious moment.
