1 | Beth and I attended our first ever class at REI last week, and plan on attending even more! This one was a very brief overview of macro photography. The next class on the list is on hiking a 14er (which is on my bucket list of things to do!) I love that REI provides learning opportunities like these for their members. Stay cool, REI.

2 | I love capturing the smallest details of life. I'm always on the lookout for the tiniest flowers or prettiest leaves or most glistening raindrops, and I could sit for an hour and watch the way the wind moves through blades of grass. Do you take time to stop and notice the smaller things in life? I think they are just as beautiful as anything else!

3 | Camp will forever have my heart. I got to head up to Eagle Lake on Monday with a group from work, and I will never not love getting the opportunity to spend a day there. That place holds so many wonderful (and some difficult) memories for me, but all memories of moments that helped me grow as a person and in my walk with Jesus.

4 | We have been having BEAUTIFUL weather in Colorado, which is a nice change from the monsoons we had when I first moved here. I get outside every chance I get to soak up some Vitamin D and to work on my Chaco tan. It's a thing, people.

Does your new job work with Eagle Lake Camp at all? You seem to be able to head up there a lot, which I think it wonderful. :)

Big Bro took his first steps at the grand opening day of the REI in greenville. We always said we were going to do a class there and never did... poop.

Aww! Do they have an REI near Lexington?

Meg McIlvaine said...

negative. Just the one in g-vegas. But it's only an hour and a half away.

Meg McIlvaine said...

That's not TOO bad. ;) My parents drive to the REI in Kennesaw all the time. Haha!

Doesn't REI also do different trips and things? I think I once saw that they have a kayaking trip that goes up the East Coast. I would LOVE to do that. I wish there was an REI close to me. That is like the ONE outdoors/adventure place we are missing here. ha. Hunting and boats are wayyy more popular. Also, love that 20 minute task plan for bloggers. Lots of things on that list that I've been wanting/meaning to do. I've pinned for later. Thanks for passing it along! :)

Meg McIlvaine said...

Haha yes!! So glad you liked them too. Disney is always adorable. :)

Meg McIlvaine said...

Jess! I believe they do, and I'd love to go sometime. :)
And yes, that task plan is rockin'. A helpful way to get a lot done in a short period of time!
