    I looked up at the sky today

    and I couldn't stop thinking what a beautiful world we live in, I'm grateful for all the small things That so many take for granted We live not knowing which day maybe our last. So no matter the time nor the hour I always take every moment I can to give #ThanksForLiving...

    Nature is just so much fun,

    and even though I'm not the most physically fit person in the world, who doesn't enjoy a scenic vista and brisk hike? :P I just wish there were more nature-y things to see around Chicago. I want mountains and deserts and giant trees and stuff :P Not just beaches and fields...

    The snow is always beautiful

    and as much as I hate the cold, winter is a wonderful time of the year. It's funny how nature dies and wilts and animals go to hibernate and you think it was sad and miserable yet this is when most people express joy and happiness :) I still prefer the fall though. It didn't...

    I love to go wandering in the wilds of the New

    Forest which is so close to our town, and almost adjacent to our house. I go walking there for hours, sometimes never seeing another person the whole time I'm there! I have often taken off all my clothes as I walked, and I feel the air on my body. It's such a delight! As...

    A Fleeting Moment Of Serenity

    It's nice to just go down by the lake and forget about everything that's happening in your life and in the world. Just focus on yourself a little bit, reflect, relax and partake in a beautiful fall day! Life has a few simple pleasures, but this is one of them!

    I love the outdoors. Truly calms me

    Sometimes I feel like it holds all the answers

    to every single question you have. One only needs to stop and listen. And the calm that you experience when you truly connect with nature is something wonderful.

    It feels so serene and peaceful,

    I would love to live in the countryside. I think men who are active and aren't afraid of a little mud and sweat are the most attractive

    Tree Houses

    I adore tree houses. They affect me on a few levels. I find something cozy and romantic about them, like a little fantasy land. I like their simplicity yet intricacy and that they are attached to nature, plus they can bring out the little girl in me..

    Love It!

    I love being outdoors and being in nature. Hiking and camping are both really fun as well as just hanging out in the woods, by a lake, at the beach, or by a river. I love nature and natural settings. I try to go to nature spots as often as I can.

    I work for the park service,

    so I spend most of my time outdoors. It's the perfect job for those who want to be out in nature. I get paid to wander through God's creation, watching nature at its best producing flowers and the off spring of new life filling the woods, creeks, and marshes. What a great job

    Despite the freezing cold,

    I still made it out to my favorite hiking trail :) it may be a while till I go back but I thoroughly enjoyed the setting of fall around me. The trees created a giant multicolored ceiling consisting of reds, pinks, yellows, greens and browns . Beautiful day to be alive :)

    There is almost nothing I like more than being outdoors. Working in my garden or walking in the forest restores my soul. I like being a wanderer of the world. I literally feel myself recharge when I step into the forest. I'm fortunate to live close to the woods and it's magical...

    The Experience Of Walking Outdoors

    There is nothing better

    than being outdoors enjoying nature! I love hiking, canoeing, kayaking, fishing, hiking, grillin', chillin' at a bonfire or just sitting on the deck with a nice cold brewskie! Which is exactly what I'm doing tonight! Love living out in the country! How about you?

    Today I went on a long hike through the forest,

    and crossed the creek over fallen trees. I saw an owl. Being alone and breathing in the scent of the pines and grasses just gives me that tingly sensation all over. You know that feeling.

    I have fallen in love with nature.

    When nothing feels real, the earth is there- dirt and rocks underneath my feet, the breeze brushing through my hair, the feel of water's silkiness in my hands. I feel like a kid again. When I feel like there's no point to life, I get outside and find purpose in appreciating...
