30x30 nature challenge

30x30 nature challenge: the kick-off.


The merry month of May is here - the month that says, all things seem possible, you can do it! Grace and I are kicking it off by participating in the David Suzuki Foundation's 30x30 Nature Challenge. For us, committing to spend thirty minutes in nature each day for thirty days presents a delightful challenge. An important part of our family narrative, the relationship we have with nature is integral to our emotional health and happiness, serving to reinforce that we belong to something bigger than ourselves.

The associated photo contest for the first week of the 30x30 challenge (May 1-7) is themed "Nature in My Neighbourhood" and since G and I went to the west side of Vancouver this morning, we will have to make sure we stick closer to home later this week. I have never submitted an entry for a contest of any sort, but am thinking it might be quite fun to share some shots of us getting our daily dose of nature over the course of the next month.

Nature, here we come! 


  1. Oh I love this picture of Grace! How amazing it must have been to spend some time by the ocean! Looking forward to seeing more pictures from the nature challenge! xx

  2. Thanks Jennifer! We are loving our oceanside days - it's amazing to see the progression little ones make - first afraid of grass, then afraid of sand, next came the sand-eating phase and now she's all about throwing rocks and wiping her hands on my pants - so funny! Hope you have a lovely weekend. xx
