Nature Scavenger Hunt: Camping Edition II

Welcome to the second edition of camping posts! This post is about a photography scavenger hunt on some of the trails by our campsite.  
1) Something man-made in the middle of nature

2) Something wet (the trail was muddy)
3) two types of seeds

4) A leaf/plant
5) Something fuzzy (moss)
6) something you think is a treasure
7) Something you think is beautiful

8) Something that makes noise (the trees were so creaky!)
9) Something round
10) Something UGLY! 

11) Something alive!
That was such a fun game! We played couples style and showed each other our pictures on the beach while soaking up some sun!
For some sad news, unrelated to camping, I fell running yesterday and it hurts. Everything is starting to change colors and my knee is swollen. Kinda sucks because Sunday is the color run, I hope I feel more in running condition by then. I didn't even go to spin class tonight because it was hurting and swollen. :(

Hope that I feel better by Sunday guys!!!

Oh The Places You'll Go: Camping Edition I

Our Camping trip was so beautiful. A perfect moment shared with great friends, good food, gorgeous views, and grand tunes.
We had our own private beach just steps from our tents. We swam both days even though it was a bit chilly in the water, it wasn't cold enough to stop our fun!

This is my happy place. I have decided that this is where I am going in my head if I feel stressed at school, or depressed about anything. This place is gorgeous and I have found my paradise in my own state!
I even braved wearing a bikini! It wasn't so much about vanity as it was about feeling liberated, and confident enough to love myself. I've always worn skirted suits, or ruffles, or one know what? I'M 24! I'm wearing a bikini, I'm going to rock it, and I'm going to focus on the freedom of camping and enjoy the swim instead of focusing on my body! It was so empowering.

                    Goodnight sun! We loved your presence all weekend!
I can't wait for next year!
