Weekend Green Hour

This Green Hour thing we've been doing has been good for my soul. I can only imagine what it's doing for the girls. There's something about getting outdoors that makes all my petty little concerns seem as small and mundane as they really are. Problems that loom like black storm clouds on the horizon when I am alone in my house disappear in the rush of the creek and the quiet of the woods. I need to be awed. I need to be reminded that I am not nearly as important as I sometimes like to think I am. It's both humbling and freeing, this reminder in such graphic detail that I am just a small part of creation, not the center of it.


  1. Love these photos, and the intention behind a green hour. What a great way to gain perspective of what's really important. I bet the girls are loving it too!

  2. They are loving it. It's amazing the calming effect it has on them.
