Keep It Simple – Westwood Hills Nature Center – Minnesota

Keep it simple. The best things in life are right in front of you. I hear people say all the time that they wish they could do this or that. I also hear that many of these wishes are based on what people see on social media. Today’s “Mondays are for daydreaming” post is a reminder ...
