NURTURED BY NATURE // "Said Destination"

For our anniversary this year, Jonathan had a surprise planned for me.  Because I don't like to be out of control (something I'm working on), I was a bit freaked out, so my friend just kept referring to the trip as "Said Destination."  

The destination was this amazing place called Nurtured By Nature.  People like us who go & pay for our play-time with the animals are also providing the lovely people who run this thing with the funds to give kids with life-long or terminal illnesses the chance to play with these animals as well.

We got to meet a sloth, which Jonathan was stoked on.  That was a nice surprise for him!  The baby fennec fox was the cutest thing ever.  But my favorite part was swimming with the otters.  Oh.  My.  Gah.  It was just amazing.  I love otters.  They're just the coolest, cutest little dudes.  Getting to spend some one-on-one time with them in a swimming pool was the best.  My life was made that day!

Let's just say that Jonathan is REALLY good at surprises!

Tips >>
- Pack for anything.
- Always bring a swim suit, towel, & sunscreen!
- Use Sunbum's zinc formulas, as they stay put in water longer & are chemical-free.
- Get yourself a LifeProof case for your waterproof photo snapping needs.
- Hats are a great way to hide from the sun & stay cool, invest in one you don't mind thrashing.
- Make a playlist with enough jams to get you anywhere.

Wearing >>
Recluse T-shirt from Stay Home Club.
