make-believe: a forest walk.

October 4, 2012
This time of year has me wanting for little adventures. Dreary days spent cooped up writing in my apartment have me itching to be out in the woods instead. I’d happily withstand a few raindrops on a woodsy romp. This time of year, I’d hunt for old concord grape vines and the last of fall’s mushrooms. Armed with a little pocket knife and a snack, I’d bring a basket to carry back my spoils–you know the sort–branches and brambles and other countrified things.

    Track finder! My husband and I had so much fun with that book when we hiked part of the Appalachian Trail on our honeymoon. This time of year always pulls me back to nature as well.

    Well if you'd like a virtual walk in the forest you can just check out the last few posts in my blog! šŸ™‚ I live in Finland, in the countryside, and I absolutely love our nature. For the last couple of weeks my husband and I have spent hours just walking out there – we even ran into a huge moose, and believe it or not I got it on video!

    The boots look awesome! But I'm afraid the kind of places we wander in, Gore-Tex is the only option… šŸ˜‰

    What a beautiful jacket! Do you work from home, usually? If so, are you an exerciser at all? I'm not a gym person and am always on the search for people's at-home favorites … mine is usually a yoga mat and a podcast …

    autumn is my favorite time of year. Forest walks with a thermos full of hot tea sounds like heaven!

    A walk through the woods sounds so nice, especially before winter starts to set in. The colors here are at their height and are so beautiful!
