I haven't had too many new places to report for winter hikes because we visited so many new places in the fall that we wanted to return to so we have been recycling favorite hiking and walking spots.

I can't blog enough about how much I love walking with my husband.  From the simple walk around the neighborhood to longer hikes that we drive many miles to get to, these times always end up being some of the sweetest.

Wherever we end up is often so far out of the mind of other people that we often find solitude from people, and can instead relish the bustling sounds of nature.  We often discuss very personal matters, and use the time to set future goals of what we would like our life to be.  It was not so long ago that we walked in North Carolina, planning out the life that we now have in South Carolina.  When we walk, we make things happen, and eventually our dreams come true.


  1. i don't get
    much walking done

    and i'm longing for spring

  2. I am absolutely a follower - your blog is inspirational eye candy. I love it.

  3. I love the shoes! I have walking/running gear - shoes, skort, socks, shirt; and I said last year I would run a half marathon by the time I turn 35. That's 4 months away, and sadly I haven't even run once.

    This year, I'm going to make some changes, I'm going to do this! (Oddly enough I used to walk all the time pushing my kids in the stroller. Now that they go to school full time, nada! I must change this!)

  4. @Andrea - I have always wanted to be a runner, but somehow I can only pull it off on the treadmill. I have really grown to love walking since I met my husband, it is a great activity we can do together that has lead to endless adventures. These shoes were fantastic - until they got a hole (boo!).
