Hikes, beach days, spending time in the garden, walks to the playground, eating snack on the deck, these are just a few of the ways we have been getting outside a little bit, or a lot, each day.
We try our hardest to get outside at least once a day. With or without sunscreen, depending on how long we'll be out and what time of day it is as well. Vitamin D people!
Snacks and water are key of course, and while fruit leather and larabars are just the most convenient and delicious things ever invented, working towards zero waste and in seasons snacks is the dream. One day at a time. It does help that summer has some pretty amazing choices for snacks, like strawberries and watermelon. And snap peas straight from the garden.
Thank goodness for closed off decks and those magnetized screens. Always open in the summer, little O is found out there all the time with her little animals, and a big bowl of cool water to play with if I remember to set it out for her.
This simple little life, with the simple little blessings each day. It's what I live for. And cherries, they are just too good.
Peace and love,
