Have you ever noticed how fantastic you feel after a walk, even if you had to drag yourself outside? Walking has been one of my best joy-boosters for many years. After a good walk I feel energized, motivated, and often times inspired to write (like right now).
I have (what I consider) the luxury of living in the woods. I have a tendency to take photos while walking. A LOT of photos!
Since my camera is filled with photos of the nature and wildlife that I come across on my walks or while just enjoying the outdoors, I thought I’d share some of my favorites. And since I love good quotes, I’m sharing some nature-inspired quotes, too.
I’m not a photographer, but I do enjoy trying to capture Mother Nature’s beauty!
