Getting out of the House

Never ever underestimate the power of just getting out of the house, even if its for a minute or two.  After weeks of maternity leave I absolutely find it crucial to step out of the confines of the walls of my house.  Sometimes I take a second to just stand on my back deck while the baby sleeps in her crib so I can breath in some fresh fall air.  Other times, when it isn't pouring rain, I load Emily up and take a stroll around the neighborhood.

I just realized...

This time last year I was going for a jog along dirt roads and not-in-use snowmobile trails.  Now I am pushing a stroller along sidewalk-lined neighborhoods.  Holy cow...  

This is why I love walking through the neighborhood with Emily en tow. 

Beautiful, no?

Oh, and by the way...
I took this photo and posted it in Instagram.  Do you use that app?  Its an awesome way to share what you're doing, where you are, or how you feel via photos.  If you already use it look me up!  My screen name is "jenhnx"
