The holiday season is officially here, and we’ll be driving to see our Mississippi family for Thanksgiving later this week. I love this time of year, but already it feels so rushed. I’ve been making lists at double speed lately, and there were plenty of things on the list to get done over the weekend, but we took an afternoon off to visit Radnor Lake for a family hike. The leaves have turned, the wind was brisk, and it was a perfect fall day to take a deep breath!
When I used to imagine what it would be like to have a little person join our family, I envisioned days like this one, just the three of us, experiencing a familiar place for the first time again. My fantasies didn’t include lugging a diaper bag or a baby-wearing carrier that hurts your back after a while or a shrieking baby to let us know when she was officially DONE with the hike… but that’s the reality I couldn’t foresee, and when I take a moment to take it all in, it’s so much more than I could’ve ever expected.
The last time we visited Radnor Lake was in 2015 (check out that post here)! We saw a ton of wildlife, which was so cool. Aside from some squirrels and a turtle, we didn’t see many animals this time, but it might have something to do with the crying baby…
More city sights coming soon as we explore the Nashville area!
