Potential New Backyard
As if the appeal of our dream house wasn't strong enough, we discovered that there is a hiking trail literally RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER that takes you into the woods above the river and connecting eventually with a state park. I mean, come on.
We were completely ignoring the freezing temperatures we had last week and continued trekking outside whenever we could. With a few layers of thermals, sweaters, jackets, hats and hoods, we've been braving icy winds that numb my face and freeze my tears. The cold never seems to keep us inside. Nothing really does, to be honest. So when we decided to do yet another creepy stalker drive-by past our potential new house on our way up to visit his mom, we felt a strong urge to drive around the corner, pull over and march into the woods to explore this trail we had heard about.
It's almost too much to handle. For random wanderings, jogging, heading down to the river across the railroad tracks, or just getting out of each others faces if we will ever need to (we will probably need to), it's perfect.
I've basically done everything wrong by moving myself in mentally already, but what can I say? I guess I just like to think positively...
