It's easy to fall into the rut of the norm, the routine. And when adventure calls to us, we immediately start thinking we need to hop on a plane and fly somewhere far away to achieve it. But I promise you, adventure awaits you.. even in your back yard.
We felt like getting out of the city on Saturday, so we decided to take a ride out to Baie-Saint-Paul.. just about 45 minutes from our house. This little beach is one of my favorite places in Quebec, and I swear it's just as beautiful, if not more so in the winter than in the summer. The girls were in heaven sliding all over the ice. I could have stayed there for hours looking out over the frozen seaway(if it weren't for the -17 degree temperatures)! But even just an hour there, I felt so refreshed.. a complete change of scenery, no one around but me and my little family embracing the wonder of mother nature.
I dare you to find some adventure this week.. look around you and see things a bit differently, and when you catch yourself going, 'oh wouldn't that be fun.. but I don't have time, or it's too cold, or I should get home and make dinner'.. stop. And do it, whatever it is. You deserve it.
