Today I'm taking my monthly hike with my family. You can see glimpses of the last two hikes here and here. There's plenty of research that says exercise helps your brain work better and in turn leads to creativity. I'm really not a 'workout' kind of girl but I love to be outside. These hikes clear my head which seems to make room for new ideas. I can't wait to look for signs of spring (it's supposed to be 70*F here today!) and maybe find some ordinary, beautiful things right under my nose.
