Recharging the soul

Life can catch you up in its vicious cycle called “routine.”  Routine keeps you sane, keeps you grounded, gives you the sense of “being in control”, but can dull your senses, keep you from noticing the small things in life that can make you smile.  When routine causes the latter symptoms, my family always escapes by grabbing our souls and heading to the mountains for a lil’ camping adventure.

Our latest soul recharging camping trip was to Michigan Creek campground which provided us with biking, hiking, fishing, wildflowers, wildlife, and tons of new memories to replay in a loop when routine clouds us.

  1. Sounds like you really “get it”. Nice to know there are others out there that do, sometimes I begin to wonder. Beautiful family & keep doing what your doing & don’t change your mindset. I like your images as well! Happiness is not in collecting more material things, its in living and creating lasting memories with ones we care about.
