Weekend Adventures


Hello you, and welcome to inside the mind of an Obsessive Compulsive Designer

I don’t know about you guys but this nice weather has me feeling extra energized. Finally I can see a light at the end of this winter-ridden tunnel! This weekend, with the amazing weather we were experiencing, I decided to do some exploring. My sister was down for this adventure as she loves hiking and going on adventures more than I do! We drove out into the country and came across this amazing little reservoir. We spent a couple hours just exploring the bank on foot and cruising through the park around it. We came across this fallen tree overhanging the lake and it was just too cute of a photo op to pass up!

It was such an amazing and relaxing day! I love going to new places that I’ve never been to and just taking the time to wander and explore. Getting away from the hustle and bustle of city life or even the monotonous of suburbia is such a breath of fresh air. Getting out into places where you’re likely to not pass another person is such a great feeling. Not quite the Colorado mountain hike we are accustomed to but we couldn’t ask for better in the Midwest.

I hope you all are having a great week and enjoying the weather before it takes a turn for the worst again!
