If the run up to the festive season or your big day is stressing you out, head to a park!

According to Dr. Aaron Michelfelder from the Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine, one of best ways to reduce stress is by taking a walk in nature. He says that a walk in a forest or park helps our levels of white blood cells increase, lowers our pulse rate, blood pressure and level of the stress hormone cortisol (Source: ScienceDaily)

How We Met

Jared and I met in high school, we were really good friends in high school but we only started dating when we left school. We dated for seven years before we got engaged.

Jared asked me to be his wife the night before we moved into our new home together. As I was packing up my room into boxes, I found a ring box he had hidden behind some photo frames. When I picked it up to see what it was, he got down onto one knee.

Oh yes, a walk in the park is pretty… and it’s just what the doctor ordered!
