Dispatches from Button Rock

We went to Button Rock Preserve Sunday afternoon–my husband, Jay, and I and, of course, Olive, our Chesapeake Bay and Labrador retriever mix puppy. We were starting to get into our regular Sunday routine of sitting around and prepping for the start of a busy week. Jay mentioned on a whim that we should go on a hike. I thought of all the work I had with the classes I teach starting and all, but I stopped myself. Olive needed a walk, and Jay and I needed some time to hang out together.
