June is my Walking Anniversary Month
I thought I'd do a different type of post today about my walk.
This year makes 33 years of taking a morning walk.
It all started back in June of 1988 when I was 37 years old.
We lived in Waldorf, Maryland and I walked with a friend Joanne.
After the kids got off to school we would meet and take a walk.
We lived in a development so just walked passed houses.
No blogging back then so didn't take any pictures.
Joanne moved away and that was when I started walking alone.
Though I enjoyed walking with Joanne I liked it even better alone
and have continued walking alone till this day.
We moved to Savage, Maryland in 1994 and I got to explore a
whole new area for walking.
Savage was a town that time seemed to forget stuck in the
middle of a very crowded area.
At first I walked all around town and then discovered
some walking paths that led to a river and would walk along there.
After some years I started blogging and then started taking
pictures along my walk.
A few pictures of where I walked.
Moved to Ellicott City in 2009 and lived 1/2 mile from Centennial Park.
There was a 2 1/2 mile walking path around the whole lake.
LOTS of wildlife there and it was a great place for walking.
I'm sure many of you remember the lake.
There were also lots of walking paths winding through neighborhoods.
So much fun when we first moved there because I would take a
path and never know where I'd end up.
I had a route I named the Connect the Paths.
Walking around the lake and the paths was my favorite place of all to walk.
So many different places for walking.
We lived right between to large cities (DC and Baltimore) but you
would never know it where I walked.
In 2013 we moved up here to western Maryland
and I've been walking here ever since.
Lived in town for the first 5 years and
this Aug we will be in our new house 3 years.
I love walking around here were it is so peaceful and beautiful.
I've enjoyed walking where ever we have lived and have met so many
people over the years.
My morning walk has kept me sane, happy, and very
Thankful for each and every day.
So I celebrate 33 years of morning walks.
I thank all of you loyal readers who 'walk' along with me each day.
Thanks so much for stopping by
and remembering with me.
👩🏻🦳 happyone ❤️

Comment Replies: Ellen and Diane - The blooms of yesterday are from a Chinese Dogwood - Cornus Kousa. They bloom later than a regular dogwood. Passed by the tree again this morning and took a picture.
Victor - Yes, that is a llama in the picture from yesterday. There are two of them there at Farmer Bill's Farm.
John - Glad you tried the French fries and the Air Fryer and like them.
