An Ideal Afternoon

If you follow me on Instagram then you've probably noticed that the hubby and I like to take a lot of walks. And lately, when the weather's right, that's exactly how we've been spending our free time. 
During these walks we always talk about our life together --our hopes for the future, what we are longing for and dreaming about -- and it's at these moments that I realize life truly doesn't get any better than this and I am so incredibly blessed. Those moments are what life is all about. Being with the one you love, deep in conversation or comfortable in the silence, and relishing the beauty of God's creation around you. 

That's exactly how my ideal afternoons are spent these days. 

.......................................................
And since I'm nosey I wanted to know what another's ideal afternoon would look like! So I picked Breanna's brain ;) Breanna is the sweet wife, momma, and teacher behind the blog Counting Blessings, who really has quite the talent for photography! (I promise if you check it out you'll be grinning like a fool at your computer screen while looking at her photos of her adorable baby, Jonah.)
"My ideal afternoon would be spending time with my husband Kevin and our son Jonah. I treasure family time, and want to soak up every minute of it that I can. The only thing that would make that time better would be spending it at the beach! We haven't gone for a few years, so I am definitely looking forward to vacationing at the beach again, especially with our little one in tow!"


Now it's your turn! Tell me, how would you spend your ideal afternoon?

Good thing you blog since Huck is so freaking photogenic!

That walk looks heavenly. I wish I had places like that around here to walk! (and some weather that was warm enough to go out for one lol)

That's how a lot of our weekends were spent last Summer :D I love all the fun trails, etc, in Washington!!

Aw, I think your ideal afternoon would be my ideal afternoon! When we rarely have some free time on a weekend we like going to Green Lake for a walk and then grabbing lunch together afterward.

oh my goodness I can't even begin to explain how badly I am itching to get out there on the trails with my pup and fiancé. We just got more snow so it feels like spring is so far away here in Iowa!
