We often spent week-long vacations in the Adirondacks during our summer breaks. My mom and her best friend would rent a rather dilapidated but cozy cabin in Speculator, a small town on Lake Pleasant. Those weeks positively sealed the deal on my love of the outdoors. Between ogling mallard ducklings, collecting snails and swimming in water clear enough to see fish, I couldn't get enough time in each day to take in everything. I was hooked.
I will forever be grateful that I was exposed to nature starting at a young age. It has led to a lifelong passion for simply being outside. Tim and I may take a drive this weekend to look for wildlife and some scenery that is new to us.

Hope you have a great weekend.
