Hiking and Making Changes

My daughter and I went hiking today. It was one of those spontaneous hikes where you explore and discover places you never knew existed so close to home.

She joyfully ran ahead, choosing our path, scrambling over rocks, stopping to make little discoveries. We listened to the birds and threw pebbles into the stream. It was a very quiet day, and she was entranced by the sound of the stream running over the rocks. It was lovely and very restorative for both of us.

Anyway, I just thought I’d check in with you guys. I am still here. Doing lots of stuff like this. Parenting. Playing outside. Cooking. Washing the dishes. Missing my blog, missing the interaction with people like you who read things like this, and who write things like this (and may be wondering why I’m not stopping by to read and comment on your stuff). I miss all of that. But right now, my focus is here.

My kids love nature. The more I can get them out in it, the happier we all are.

I’m going to make some changes to this blog. It’ll be under construction – slowly, very slowly – as I tweak and rearrange and even change the name. I’m broadening my scope. I’m not just a (partial) locavore – I’m a nature geek, I’m slightly obsessed with sustainability, I’m a mother who encourages kids to dig up the backyard and play with the bugs. There’s so much more to discuss! In the meantime, I am spending a little time over on twitter, do come say hello!

Happy Spring,
