Adam and I have been enjoying a lot of evening walks this summer. When I first moved out into the burbs, I thought everything was going to be cookie-cutter and all the nature-y stuff would be manicured and fake-looking. But instead we have a wonderful path a few blocks from our house with a little lake (albeit man-made) and beautiful, old trees. It's so quiet you can hear the bullfrogs and there's usually some sort of wildlife to behold!
Within a mile of our home is a much bigger lake, where a lot of people go boating and fishing. I love to go for bike rides and runs around that lake. The other night on one of my longer runs, I couldn't help but stop and admire the sunset over the lake. It was so beautiful, it just caught my breath.
It's so nice to be able to get out and enjoy the fresh air.
