Every spring when I start hiking or walking outdoors again it feels like I have been hibernating all winter. I haven't...I'm out for recess duty every day come rain or shine, but it is not the same as hiking through the woods and seeing it come to life again. It awakens something in me too.
In my last post I mentioned Hawthorn Hollow, we also have a hiking path through the woods next to the Root River provided by the company my husband works for. Yesterday I walked the 2 mile loop for the first time this year and it felt wonderful. There is something about reconnecting with nature that is good for the soul.
