Oh, nature. I’ll be honest– we tend to have a love/hate relationship. On one hand, I absolutely love getting outdoors, disconnecting from “modern life”, & reconnecting with the natural world. On the other hand, I have pretty killer seasonal allergies & have had my fair share of poison ivy encounters to rightfully fear the little plant.
Despite these obstacles, nature never fails to entice me. The call of the wild overpowers my itchy eyes, sneeze attacks, & fear of a possible run-in with a certain plant. Why? Because sometimes a good hike, a stroll through the woods, or even just sitting under a nice shady tree is just what we need to feel whole again.
Ah, I can almost smell the fresh air, can’t you?
Now, let’s get outside!
