Seeking the Wild

We've always loved going to the parks with the kids but recently after reading Soulemama's The Creative Family I'm feeling even more inspired to connect with nature and as she put it; 'seeking the wild'. We may not be able to go camping or to the beach right now but like she said, do not let your financial or geographic position stop you from enjoying nature.

So often we can get caught in the grind of daily life that we forget to be fully present, be mindful and enjoy the simplest things in life. Like the warmth of the sun of our faces, or view of the green grass in front of our eyes. But sometimes if we just be still and be present, we can see how beautiful it all is...and how blessed we are...

I hope these photos inspire you to seek the wild too ;)

p/s: Photos taken at the gorgeous Princess Diana's Memorial Fountain. Those of you in London, this place rocks! mari2 kite pergi ini tempat ok...Those of you in Malaysia, omg this place reminds me of Sungai Gabai..ok, it's not quite as wonderful as Sungai Gabai though..i miss Sungai Gabai!

I love Adam's trunks!

And you're right, I think we get so distracted by "stuff" that we forget how much fun nature provides us :D
