Return to Baby Wipes and Day Hikes

I got some news…

**This post originally appeared on my PRW Newsletter on Jan. 27, 2023. There are few edits.**

It’s a new year, a new day, and I have a new baby on the way!

Between Covid-19 and winter I didn’t get out as much with my newborn in 2020. I’m hoping this time around, since the “stork” is making the delivery on May 11th, I get to do more hiking with my new baby and my toddler.

I’m excited that we’re having a little girl this time. Don’t get me wrong, my little boy is awesome! It will just be nice to have some back up in the house that doesn’t run on four legs.

I’m currently at 27 weeks— and I’m already feeling the feels. Hormones, body aches, and food cravings are my new normal. Sadly, the weather isn’t helping with the hormonal challenges. Winter storms, blizzards, and cold snaps are keeping me inside—mainly so I don’t have to deal with slipping and falling. Pregnancy affects balance folks.

It’s also causing my SAD to come around and sap the joy out of me. I know it’s only temporary and I’m trying to combat it by going on short walks with the dogs, taking my vitamin d, and using a UV light. However, it’s an ongoing fight.

It’s easy to fight back when you have fun snow days with the family!

I’m still writing but I haven’t taken time to get out and do photos. I’m gearing up on my new set of #thesaurus poems and some other poetry on my Prairie River Witch sites! Plus, I’m working on some new content for this blog and my other various platforms.

Stay inspired and keep wandering,

I've always enjoyed the outdoors; I love camping, kayaking, and canoeing. However, I decided to break out the hiking boots for longer than a day or two and dive into the world of backpacking.
