a walk in the woods

i may not have traveled down the Appalachian Trail with Bill Bryson and his hilarious friend, but i did some hiking today. Though that is on my bucket list. loved, LOVED that book. but i digress.

this morning, Kevin and I hiked a couple of trails in the Big Thicket. it was the most peaceful, serene morning. walking and talking. planning and pondering to the soundtrack of squirrels scurrying, birds calling and woodpeckers knocking away.
it was a perfect monday.
how was yours?


  1. Oh what a lovely walk for you! I can't believe the green! And the shorts!

    A good Monday here! Cold and icy outside, but warm and playful inside!

  2. There is nothing better than a morning hike with the hubby. It's one of our favorite things to do together - we get to do a lot of talking, dreaming, sharing. Loved "Walk in the Woods!"

  3. Looks like a wonderful spot you found! I just added The Big Thicket to my Texas must-see list.

  4. these photos are so serene...the perfect way to set the tone for the rest of the day! my monday...not as peaceful, but still good nonetheless. a run on the beach happened which is always good! happy tuesday!
