Woodland escapes













I have a confession, I adore the forest.

I love trees, birds, every piece of moss, the silent peace that floods you, as soon as you step into the woods. And if there is a pristine stream, well count me in to kicking off my shoes and enjoying the luxury of dipping in my piggies!

I love that I live tucked away among the trees and that our home away from home is on the tippety-top of a mountain that is covered with trees. A tiny dirt road winds its way to our hidden bungalow and then sneaks to the peak, before winding down back down to civilization. These were given to us by God, He knows just how to bless my heart.

I am always happy to share my love of the woods with anyone that is willing to come. I can't help myself, once I am in the forest, something within me springs out and I begin to let all the stored up knowledge come out. I don't even realize I am doing it, until someone tells me I should write all that I have learned down.


The joy that is hidden under that canopy of leaves and branches. The trees are my friends, and I wouldn't have it any other way.


Out of the forest and back to reality, don't worry my beloved forest, we'll be back again soon.

Wow! What beautiful photos, and what beautiful children you have. Sorry I never really responded to the sweet comment you left on my blog awhile ago. I've been busy, but I still love coming here and seeing what you're up to!

Hi Kimmie, Nice photo's as usual. I like the smell of the forest too, they are special places. When on the farm we were surrounded by pine forest, I loved to walk through it in the evening after a hot day. ATB Bob.

Hi Kimmie!
Your photos are beautiful, especially since your precious children are in them! You always capture the essence of beauty in your photos, and in your writing as well!
Have a great weekend!

I always feel so at peace when I am in our woods under the canopy of trees and so close to my creator when I am basking in his creation!
