sometimes you find yourself in the middle of nowhere and sometimes in the middle of nowhere you find yourself. - author unknown
i have a secret longing for the middle of nowhere. and even starting over, hence the military life and i getting along so well. and i can't wait to get back to this space. this space (almost) in the the middle of nowhere.
in tampa, we don't camp in the summer (99 degrees with 99% humidity is rather miserable); we camp in the winter. and i ache for all that camping has to offer...
bonding as a family. away from the noise. solitude. freedom. the sounds of nature. fresh air. the smell of the woods. no obligations. no deadlines. nightly campfires. s'mores. hiking. bike riding. geo-caching. hammock resting. football throwing. book reading. wildlife. exploring. imagination and creative play. embracing dirty. overall rejuvenation. cherished time together. simple days. the memories.
these were taken back in march, on one of our camping adventures and i can't wait to get back to doing this. soon!!
yep... i can't wait. p.s. kiele was out of town during this trip.
