moments in the Blue Ridge

It’s been gorgeous in Central Virginia and today was just one of those days where you couldn’t not be in the sunlight . Chris and I decided to visit a spot in the Blue Ridge that we hadn’t been to in about two years and I’m glad we did. We sometimes forget the calming effect that being outdoors and breathing fresh air can have. Even the sensation of walking in cold water or climbing on rocks is relieving. Our society has managed to detach us from nature and it is our responsibility to reconnect. We can’t forget how innately human it is to walk outside, to get dirty, to play around.

Day 181 – 6.30.2011

Wow, can you believe it’s already the end of June? It’s crazy! This summer is flying by! The weather today was spectacular – beautiful sunshine with refreshing breezes, thank goodness it was my day off.

What else could a girl ask for? Some well-earned Vitamin D and a good book.

Note: I did not stay outside for long – mosquitoes apparently think I am very delicious and I am now very itchy.
