I'm a lover of walks. It's a perfect time to think and reflect, and it gets your body moving as well as your mind.

I especially love finding new places to walk. This morning my father and I spent some time together and just let our feet guide us. Soon we found a trail and we took it. Before we knew it, we'd discovered a hidden gem: a park tucked out of the way with a beautiful lake and eager ducks and geese waiting to say, "hello."

We rested there for a bit before heading back. Then I waited for my boys to arrive home and we armed ourselves with bread and I took them to my new favorite hang out spot.
