I have to admit I’m sick of snow and winter but seeing the snow on the bluffs made for pretty sweet views! #camphalsey

64 - what does this number even mean? 64 people took a couple of seconds to practice gratitude towards winter in my story yesterday. I bet you had no idea there was even 6 things to be thankful for during winter, especially this year. ❄️❄️❄️ I spent this entire weekend bundled up and outside. I probably haven’t spent this much time in the fresh air since October. Why, you ask? Because I’m too content to be comfortable, to be warm & inside not fighting with all the white stuff. I soon realized though that actually getting out of that winter comfort zone was better for my mental health than staying inside. ❄️❄️❄️ Think about it. Step out of it. Work towards embracing it. You need you to be your best you (& so do we ☺️). #IowaBlessed

Clear Lake’s Color Of The Wind Kite Festival was quite the event to witness yesterday. Many of the kite flyer came in from various places and some from out of state. Many spectators, including myself enjoyed watching kites of various sizes out on the frozen lake that was able to support along with vehicles. With some pushing close to 50ft in height this Iowa event is truly one should see while they’re in the state this time of the year. at Clear Lake, Iowa

Visiting Muscatine! The Environmental Learning Center at Discovery Park is definitely a place to check out! While we did check out the grounds a little bit, we mostly enjoyed all the things to do! And mom learned a bit more about fish. Hopefully we will get to come back when we are better prepared for the cold or it is warmer! Also hoping to check out deep lake parks then. #earlyyears #letthembelittle #wildandfreemama #wildandfreechildren #wildandfreekids #familyadventures #freerangemama #freerangekids #iowaoutdoors #exploreiowa #muscatine #naturestudy #naturalscience #natureplay at Environmental Learning Center

Side angle on a frozen pond in full snow attire is not easy, my friends, but it was just so sunny I felt the need to yoga. 😆 Also, if you live in Marion County, go see @cairnyogawellness. 🧘🏼‍♀️ #IowaBlessed at Marion County, Iowa

You don’t have to go far from home to find adventure. At dinner last night with friends, we talked about how social media’s geo-tagging of locations has done a lot of good for knowledge in exploring the world virtually - but, has also been very damaging to some places once sacred by the traffic of people going only for the photo to post on their feed. The past couple years, I have made it a point to incorporate stopping at my home’s beautiful locations as I traveled around for work and share with friends. I found more and more places full of beauty in my home state, and as I discover new places I never knew existed so close to where I am based, I’m convinced the world around me no matter where I am is only full of opportunity. The world is full of beautiful places, and I challenge you to look for the same. ✨ 𖠣 S W I N G I N G B R I D G E 𖠣 Free-swinging, 8 stories high, 262 feet long. . .
