I've been gone for a while. Working full-time can do that to you. But a few weeks ago, I shared this blog with a friend, and found myself revisiting all the cool hikes and projects I took on last year, and I realized I really miss my weekend treks and projects. I do my walks through the park and trips to the beach, but lately I've been feeling the urge to throw something new into the mix. I haven't foraged in a while, and my soul is slightly aching for some aimless explorations along the coast. Lately, I've been yearning for some new stimuli.
~But amidst all of this yearning for newness, I have been doing a lot. Here's a photo dump of recent happenings:
Earlier this week I went to Sutro Baths with a friend,
and it was so lovely to scale some structures, watch the waves, and talk
about life happenings and being an adult doing adult things. We also climbed up this giant rock and to our surprise, there were tiny tide pools with little tide pool critters. That was a welcomed surprise, I didn't even have to leave the city!
I haven't been making a ton of planty things lately, but I did make this moss terrarium for someone, and now it's at her work desk. I like that I used things I found while walking through the park.
Also, big changes are happening, and I'm excited to share them next week. In the meantime, check out this awesome blog post by Gretchen Reynolds: How Walking in Nature Changes the Brain
