Off The Shoulder Dress & Leisure Walks

It was just before sunset when my hubby and I were returning from dinner out. While passing a local park we decide on a short walk. From experience we know there is something about walking together that produces good conversation. Besides the health benefits, we break away from life and mentally relax. I can feel myself releasing stress as I breath in the outside world, especially when surrounded by nature.

This particular walk rewarded us with numerous deer going about their nightly business of grazing.  Accustomed to people, the deer hardly pay us any mind and allow us to come quite close before scampering back into the woods. That was alright because we didn't have to go far before we'd see more.

Of course we kept our pace slow, as I wasn't dressed for walking. And I couldn't resist pestering my date for a few blog pics. Too bad the deer wouldn't cooperate and hang in the back drop.

What a beautiful way to end the evening! I think we need to schedule more walks. Nightly would be amazing, but not feasible in this season of life. Maybe weekly. And what's wrong with a leisure walk from time to time? We multi-task too much. I want more exercise but there's a big health benefit to just enjoying life.

What about you? Do you go for walks much?

By the way, this dress is incredibly comfortable. My only complaint is if I want the sleeves to stay off the shoulder, I can only lift my arms so high. Anyone else struggle with this off the shoulder trend?

Always a pleasure!
