Childhood Memory

With her dad on her first camping trip throwing rocks in the river as he was trying to fish. When it started to get dark, she got a little scared, but her dad reassured her and they made it back to the campsite safe.

Outdoor Experience

When her friend and her were coming back from Arizona and decided to take a detour to the Grand Canyon. It was the first time she had experienced something that had taken her breath away. She doesn’t remember much about the trip, but she remembers the drive up to the canyon.

Nature Effect

The outdoors helps her to focus on her work, ease her reslesness, and help alleviate symptoms of depression that she can experience during the winter, rainy months in Oregon. One of the reasons she got a dog was because she spends a lot of time on the computer and her Bailey is a reminder to get outside.

Inspirational Idea

She spends most days outside so she can change her perspective to something new and finds it very inspiring. Someday, she would like to host a business camping retreat for entrepreneurs.

    We didn’t get a dog so we’d spend time outside, but having a dog gets me out of the house 3 times a day every day. Such a blessing — even in the cold, the rain, and the summer heat!

    • Dogs are so much fun! They definitely encourage outdoor play and I highly recommende them.

  • Hi Lee – dogs make such a huge difference, a big motivator to get out of the house! And you are right, cold, rain, heat, they still want and need to get outside :).
