Due to yesterday’s storm, schools were closed today (Insert mixed emotions here). However, I really lucked out of the deal- I went on a hike with my mom.
We had so much fun exploring the Roxbury Land Trust, which is right in our back yard. Countless waterfalls, flowers, and critters. We decided to be adventurous and take an unfamiliar path… And got little lost.
However, I had a three-plus hour chunk of time with my mom where we didn’t have to worry about yard work, laundry, or what was happening on our cell phones. The rest of the world (forgo the occasional message to my dad to let him know we were still alive) was on standby. It was wonderful and incredibly relaxing, well, until we got lost anyway.
I’m so lucky and so blessed to have such a caring, loving, and protective mom. She and I are so close, but we very rarely take time to just be us and enjoy each other’s company.
It was a wonderful escape from reality with my best friend.
