My readers are an incredibly special group of people. You have stuck with me as I have grown as a blogger and an outdoor enthusiast. Looking back over my oldest post, they are pretty rough from a writing perspective. But many of you have believed in me enough to stick with me. Thank you for sharing the journey!
It’s incredible to me that I have been doing this for over two years now. There have been adventures and misadventures. I learned to snowshoe and I also learned that my children cannot watch movies on long car rides. An empty cooler saved the day on that occasion.
You, the readers, have also indulged my penchant for sharing advice about family, kids, and the outdoors. I appreciate that you listen to what I have to say and hope that these articles have been useful to you. One of my favorite activities for kids that we shared here on the blog was our photo hike with “Mr. Poppy.”
Here we are waving farewell to 2021. An excellent way to mark its passing is to list the most popular posts from this year. Here are the Top Five.
5 Snowshoe Adventure
I am a recovering cold weather curmudgeon. The last few years, I have made a concerted effort to enjoy the winters here in the northeast. One way I’ve done that is to get out and enjoy new activities.
4 My Favorite Quote
It especially warmed my heart to see this post in the top five. It is one instance where you indulge me to wax philosophical. I’m glad that this post about literature and the outdoors connected well with readers.
3 Something My Kids Taught Me on the Trail
Life lessons have a tendency to sneak up on us when we least expect them. As the mom, my original design in spending more time outdoors and on the trail was about doing something good for my children. It turns out that it has been one of the most enriching endeavors for me as well.
2 Two Frosty Killjoys
Winter is a great time of year for outdoor fun! It does come with it’s own challenges and considerations. I like to highlight some of these each year and talk about some safety measures that we can all take to ensure a fun and safe outdoor time
1 Fresh Air; Fresh Art
This post was a local highlight that I was pleased to see at the top of the list for this year. We have a local art shop that hosts classes. Local artist Jon began teaching paint along classes out on the trail. What a great way to connect with nature.
