“Water is considered the elixir and source of life. It covers more than 70% of the Earth’s surface, makes up nearly 70% of our bodies, and constitutes over 70% of our heart and brains. This deep biological connection has been shown to trigger an immediate response in our brains when we’re near water. In fact, the mere sight and sound of water can induce a flood of neurochemicals that promote wellness, increase blood flow to the brain and heart and induce relaxation.”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
-Dr. Wallace “Jay” Nichols
The plan was quite simple really... An hour drive to #BristolFalls , a very soft hike, lunch by the water + a swim to cool off.
We get to the falls, realized we forgot our hiking boots + everything for swimming. (But we not here to talk about who’s to blame; let’s just say the beach towel made it, sunscreen made it, swimming clothes, nah!). 😑😂 Plans to hike were quickly ditched.
We found the most perfect little secluded spot, away from the crowd + noise + far away from our hiking spot.
I was able to meditate by the water uninterrupted.
We said fuck it, took off our clothes + jumped into the water.
These pictures are the products of “going with the flow” which ultimately led to a rather rad 4 hours with the hubby. #livingourbestlives#loveliveshere#thatszaddy#love#summer#vermont#802#btv#waterlover#naturelovers
I am so glad this guy loves the water as much as he does. I so desperately hoped he would when we brought him home almost 3 years ago. So much so that I had him in the lake that very first day to make sure he didn’t hate it.
Heading down to our beach with the kids for the first swim of the day. Im hoping for some rain for my garden later today ＋ I LOVE swimming when the water is completely still except for the rain drops plunging through the surface and caressing my face as I float on my back and feel light as a feather 💙

Remember to drink enough water.
Tag your dehydrated friends.
You can refill an 8 oz glass of water approximately 15,000 times for the same cost as a six-pack of soda.
An automatic dishwasher uses approximately 9 to 12 gallons of water while hand washing dishes can use up to 20 gallons.
If every household in America had a faucet that dripped once each second, 928 gallons of water a day would leak away.
