At the beginning of 2012 I decided to join my Husband and starting hiking. I have actually stuck with it and enjoy taking long, rough terrain hikes now! While I was walking out of my bedroom I  stopped and laughed when I saw our hiking boots sitting perfectly side by side, I had to stop and snap a quick photo. 

We recently hiked to the top of Camelback mountain and had someone take our photo, isn't the view of the valley amazing?
I scrapped what I love, My Husband and Hiking!

Papers are from the Travel Stack. I used the Ek Success Photo Label ticket punch and stamped the with Stamps from Docerela Creations. I could not resist using the Sugar and spice Stamp from the Baked with Love set... it just fit us perfect!
