You know those people that at the beginning of a new year pick a word to best describe their intentions for the year? Well this year we tried being those people. Honestly I can’t remember my word (I THINK it was Health!?) and I didn’t think Derek remembered his either until yesterday when at the last minute, without checking the weather, we decided to go blueberry picking at Treworgy Family Orchards. It started raining so we decided to try and wait it out while eating pizza and ice cream. It didn’t help but Derek said we should go for it anyway. “In the rain? really!?” I asked. “Yeah” he said. “Remember my word is adventure. It would be an adventure”. So out in the rain for blueberries we went and a mini adventure we had!
Summer is always so busy and crammed with plans to make the most of it. This little break from our scheduled routine was perfect. I think I’ll take on Derek’s word of 2017. At least until I remember my own.
