Camping on Highway 18
















                     




What a camping trip! No, seriously this was an interesting experience. It's the first time I have gone camping in someone's backyard, set up a tent at 11pm, and had no bathroom. As well as pick blackberries on the side of the road, washing leggings in the river, and get woken up by passing cars. The pictures pretty much sum of the trip. The only thing you don't see is my phone. I left it off the whole trip to disconnect with the social media world and connect with the real one. Sooooo, camping is now checked off my summer to do list! Lauren, who is in the last picture was pretty happy to go home and be able to use the bathroom.

Now that I am home I can finally relax. I have plans that involve reading blogs and rocky road ice cream!

What did you do this weekend?  I would love to know!
Much Love,
Vanessa

  2. Awwhhh, that sounds like so much fun! And I think it's so good to disconnect from the whole for awhile by putting the phone aside. As hard as that is. I should definitely try doing that more often, so thank you for the reminder. :D

  3. That looks like the sort of camping trip i would do... Maybe not in my own back yard but being able to go out into a forrest somewhere and become one with nature. Something like i've just seen now has interested me into doing it.

    1. Well the backyard part isn't something I'd do either but that's how it turned out. Nature is pretty awesome. Go explore!

  7. I've been camping a lot, and sometimes what you need is just a natural weekend getaway! I think everyone should go camping at some point in their life...whether it causes suffering or solitude. Both build character, right?
