Wilderness Medicine

The other day, we went on an adventure.

It was the year anniversary of Mowgli's death..
I didn't want to be in the house.

So, Brad and I packed up a few things.
Including Mister Wicket, and went for a drive.

We had no plans on where we would go.

We drove for about an hour, then pulled off into a random town, and drove some more.

We turned down a dusty dirt road and drove even more.

We finally felt like stopping, and got out of the car.

Wicket learned that the world is a lot bigger than our little neighborhood.
Brad learned about the rule of thirds in photography.
I learned how healing wilderness can be.

We couldn't see another person at all.
The cars were miles away.
We were free and alone with nature.















I've got tons more photos from our adventure for tomorrow.
So, do check back.

    1. Haha thanks! I think I used that photo as an example for brad. :) He takes most of my outfit photos, and sometimes they are a little toooo centered. :)

  7. This brought tears to my eyes. I've lost many close companions over the years and I know how it takes a while to heal. You look happy and am glad to see you healing. I really really love your outfit! Lovely photos, the kiss one made me giggle :)

  15. I'm glad you got a little chance to get away. My husband and I have decided that this weekend we are going somewhere. Anywhere! We've had a pretty sad week so we just want to get away for a day or two and be with nature. =)

    By the way, that outfit is really cute!!

  17. I noticed your bare feet on the ground...this really is healing and called earthing. he ground sends free electrons into your body thus healing. Whenever I'm feeling unfocused or upset I have to, have to, have to get out in nature too!

    1. Thanks Kirea! It's so nice to meet you! I too am drawn to girls who have short hair! I think there is a secret club, and once your hair is short, you are already a member. :) It's so nice to meet you! Thanks for your comment, and I hope you stick around!! xoxo
