I stumbled (while driving) upon a breath taking botanical garden here on the east side of Oahu.
Ho'omalihua Botanical Garden is tucked away just under the Ko'olau Mountains which makes it for an even more beautiful back drop. There is a lake filled with fish, and surrounded by ducks and geese to feed. The grounds are literally a rainforest and massive ancient trees tower over to provide shade. It is magical. If I am correct, I believe you can camp there, which is something I'd like to put on our "to-do" list.
Harlow is so in love with nature that it is easy to be present in places like this. Exploring and learning with her in every beautiful moment.
“Mothering is a vocation that stretches us and that helps us find that which is most wise and loving and generous within us. Day by day, we deepen our practice of Momfulness [conscious mothering] by being more present, attentive, compassionate, embodied, in touch with the sacred, and committed to community. As we open to the immense and maternal love at the heart of the universe, we discover that all of life becomes a meditation that transforms us, our families, and our world.” Denise Roy,MOMfulness: Mothering with Mindfulness, Compassion, and Grace
