I’m off camping this week on the Washington coast. As much as I love urban vacations (especially Paris!), I love camping equally because of the space it gives me to just think. There’s just something about being in nature, away from daily life and all the electronics that come with it (clearly I wrote this before I left!). On a weekly basis, I try to unplug at least once by going for a long walk along Lake Washington with just my dog. The natural landscape makes it more than just exercise…it’s a restoration.

Don’t believe me? Check out these links:

I may have a new post Friday, if I don’t get attacked by vampires in Forks. Realistically, it will probably be Monday.
