Living in Los Angeles means weather is not a huge deterrent when it comes to getting the family outside during winter. But I know not all of us are so lucky. In fact, most of you have been facing the coldest winter on record. Honestly, I don’t know how you’re doing it.
As temperatures begin to make a slow comeback into the tolerable range, it’s time to think about braving the Great Outdoors again – no matter where you happen to live.
Connecting with nature this winter doesn’t have to be time consuming or complicated. In a perfect world, it would be as easy as heading out your back door and following your kids’ lead.
