One of our favorite places to go visit is Ritchey Woods Nature Preserve. Just being outside, in the woods, and walking through the trees and a swamp and along a path and just talking to each other - it's just a great and peaceful way to connect and restore ourselves.
We visited Ritchey Wood in early April and were eager to go back on Mother's Day to see how it had changed - and it did not disappoint. The brown was gone and the green was everywhere! We delighted in the flowers and blooms all around us, too!
