Princess Falls Left Us In Awe…

Our Second Saturday looked a little something like this! 

Sunday March 8, 2020

Princess Falls

McCreary County, KY

Our second Saturday was an adventure to remember!

My guests for this adventure trip was my daughter, Damia and her girlfriend Hannah! We set out on a sunny Sunday morning to explore the beautiful Mc Creary County which is one of the most beautiful places in the entire state of Kentucky! The temperature was around 65 degrees, give or take a few degrees. It was about an hour and a half drive from Lexington but the sun was shining bright, and we were excited for a day trip adventure! Princess Falls was our destination, which has been on my bucket list for a long while now.

The water of Lick Creek had a blue/green hue and the sky was bright blue. The brown of the trees was gorgeous with the colors of the water and sky!

As we walk closer to the waterfall, our problems and everyday worries began to fade away. We were being submersed into the beauty of nature, and she seems to make everything better.

We knew we were in for a treat. We eventually came to a bridge but we were instructed to veer off to the right, following the small trail that lead to Princess Falls. The bridge was crossing over Lick Creek and we can’t help but get excited that it will be a perfect place to PLAY once the weather warms up a bit! We will definitely be going back!

If you haven’t been to Princess Falls it’s a guaranteed treat! If you to continue your adventure you can also visit Lick Creek Falls, which is across the bridge if you decide you want a longer hike. I’ve been to Lick Creek Falls and you won’t be disappointed if you go! I saw Lick Creek Falls by starting at the Ranger Station Trail Head. It’s a pretty long hike, but absolutely breathtaking.

We will let our photo collection do the rest of the talking for this Into The Wild: Kentucky Wilderness & Waterfall Adventure Time!

I encourage you to find adventures in your own back yard! Kentucky is one of the most beautiful states and we have never ending trails, waterfalls and fun waiting for you! To find this waterfall, visit the AllTrails app or

One By One

Church in the Wild 🦋


One By One

As I travelled across many fields 
Filled with butterflies & bumblebee’s
My destination is my sacred sit spot
The butterflies are waiting for me

I remember the days when
I hated to be alone
I was terrified of my thoughts
I was scared of ME until
I discovered the majestic forest & trees

Once I started to explore Mother Nature
My eyes became clear to see
My anticipation builds
As I wander through the fields
The butterflies are waiting for me

Once I reach the threshold
Of your beautiful little cove
The welcoming of Mother Nature
Wraps around me
She hugs me & squeezes me

I escape the noise of the world
I sit in silence, in stillness
I’m alone and I wait

One by one the butterflies come
And they dance for me
Sometimes I weep because
I never knew such beauty was free
The butterflies are dancing for me

No more running from myself
I’ve found heaven amongst the trees
The butterfly kisses and me
One by one the butterflies come
And they dance for me

I see beauty in them
It reflects back to me
I start to love to be alone
Mother Nature’s embrace for me
Helped me see
I am beautiful like the butterflies

Mother Nature’s beauty is all around
She wears a royalty crown
The best part is she’s free
The butterflies are dancing for me 🦋
