Chaco Sandal Adventures


I have had these Chaco sandals for about 10 years now. If I'm not barefoot in the spring and summer, most likely I'm wearing my beloved sandals that are perfect for every adventure. You see, I live in the Pacific Northwest where it is an outdoor playground. There is so much to do and so many places to explore.

One of my favorite things to do in the warmer weather is to just hang out at the river because it always puts me in a calm place. It is so important to get out in nature. I know it sounds cliche but it heals the soul. We live in such a "busy" world, and we need to give our nervous systems a break more often than not.

Spending time in nature quiets the mind, reduces stress, and strengthens our immune system. FRESH AIR, EXERCISE, SUNSHINE, and REST are essential to a healthy body. Unfortunately, many people spend the majority of the time indoors, but we were designed to live in harmony with the natural world not in office cubbies staring blurry eyed at the computer screen all day.

Below are some photos of a day spent at the river. Hope it inspires you to get outside :)
