It is the littlest of things that give the most pleasure I think, small moments that live long in the memory. On Thursday (after Stephen had been away with work for a couple of days and flew home overnight) we had the rare pleasure of a weekday walk together. Our friend has cut a hunting trail through our woods, which can also be used for a delightful amble in the late afternoon light.
For me this was the first time I fully walked the woods we’ve owned for 2 years. So many little delights there were, discoveries and inspirations; but mainly there was just walking, enjoying the fresh air, golden light and the freedom of the sky above us.
Today the sky is burning blue, the ground is white with snow but it will have to remain unexplored as the second of my two boys has fallen victim to a horrid tummy bug (poor Neirin had it on Friday). So today is about rest, tlc and remembering that walk. Knowing, of course, that there will be many more in our future.

So wonderful to get out and explore new things! Hope your little one is feeling better soon.
It was great to explore and not leave our own land! I think it will be many years before I truly know it all : )
We love the woods near us. There is something so restorative about an exploratory walk surrounded by nature’s bounty of curiosities.
You put it more beautifully than I ever could!
That sounds lovely! I hope everyone is felling up to more walks soon.
Me too! So far our outside time is happening a bit closer to home, luckily it is still very nice : )
I am sending you back loving healing thoughts!
These photos are gorgeous- I love all the muted tones- they really capture this time of year.
Thanks Melanie! We could certainly do with a bout of good health round these parts too : )
