Life in the Ozarks: Spring Update

Spring and Autumn have always been my favorite seasons. Some of the things I love the most about Spring are the rise in temperatures, the abundance of daylight, and all of the new life – especially the flowers!

This year has been pretty rough.. so I was very grateful to get some much needed downtime this past weekend. Some friends and I stayed at an amazing cabin in the Ozarks and really had the opportunity to appreciate all the beauty the natural state has to offer this time of year. We were NOT disappointed.

The cabin was made from refurbished wood, sourced from several different buildings, and was absolutely beautiful

I’m a sucker for a good porch… Just add coffee!

We explored a new area of Lost Valley and Jeff was not enthused.. Kidding! He is the biggest nature lover of them all! He was just helping me test my new lens! (Which i am in love with)

Sometimes it is crucial to take a step back out of your busy life, unplug, and just rest. I hope you all take the opportunity to get out, and do some exploring of your own this Spring! If you need a quick reference, try my guide to hiking the Ozarks.

We need the tonic of wildness…At the same time that we are earnest to explore and learn all things, we require that all things be mysterious and unexplorable, that land and sea be indefinitely wild, unsurveyed and unfathomed by us because unfathomable. We can never have enough of nature. – Thoreau

As always, live healthy, and love hard!
