A week of winter inspiration

I love blogging. One of the reasons I love blogging is because I have "all this", all these years of family history, recorded. 

I was writing an outdoors-related guest post this week and I did some searching in my archives to check my dates and facts and I came across so many wonderful winter posts.

Posts that are wonderful to me, because they are a part of my blog history and posts that I think might be wonderful (or at least interesting) for you because they help tell some of the back story to where I am in my life right now. 

How it is that I find myself getting ready to hike the AT with my family in two months? How is it that I live in a place where I ski, from out my door? How did we get here? How did we make these things even a possibility in our lives, never mind a reality?

By doing what we could, where we were. By making time for family outdoors. By dreaming. By consistently getting out the door. 

This week I'm bringing some of these posts to the surface again, flipping back the pages of this family scrapbook, also called FIMBY, to share with you thoughts about winter, family life, dreaming, and inspired living.

I'm not re-posting because I don't know what else to share. Hardly. I'm constantly writing new content, but they can wait to publish. These are worth a re-publish. Enjoy!

    This is such a good reminder.  Thank you.  Not because I care to hike the AT ... but because with all of the snow that has hit the Chicagoland area ... it is hard to remember to go outside every day.  I have a puppy so "we go out."  But I have a a great paved walking trail through the woods that I can walk every day ... and I need to "just get out the door."  Again, thanks.  You are always such a great inspiration!
