To the Weekend!


I'm getting my Christmas tree this weekend folks! And guess what else? I'm getting it out in nature- Paul Bunyan style.. minus the giant blue ox... and the giant man...Ok wait we I got a little off track.

The hubs and I are hiking out into nature and cutting one down ourselves- so exciting! I can't wait to get a fresh, green tree out in the woods. I'll try and take pictures of our little excursion to document all the awesomeness and potential awkwardness of getting it back. I'm sure I'll be wearing an evening dress with my snow boots as pictures above as well.

Have a wonderful weekend friends! I can't wait to spend mine embracing all things Christmas! See you back here in December!

Enjoying Cabin Life

Cabin life has been everything I hoped for and more. I cannot convey into words how very relaxing and comforting each day is. Even having coffee is more relaxing... I walk down our log stairs in the morning, inhale the strong, brewing coffee, and look out windows framing tall pines, red barns, &  gorgeous wildlife. I don't think I'll ever want to move.

But with the beauty also comes hard work. Since we'll be relying on our wood burning stove as our main source of heat over the winter, my husband spent the better part of each day for almost 2 weeks chopping firewood... which for those of you who are unaware means- sawing down trees, hauling them to the car, unloading them at our house, cutting them into rounds, and then chopping the rounds into firewood.

Even with all that work though, my husband also feels more at home here. I've never known him to be a homebody, but he loves just hanging around the house now- which I love.

Well enough rambling on my part, I have some better photos coming, but here's how life in the cabin has been through the eyes of my camera phone.

Enjoying the sun one day...

And the snow a few days later...

The cabin at night... cozy

My husband the mountain man- choppin' wood to keep us warm

A Great Gray Owl out our bathroom window

Spyin' on my man...

Made Pumpkin Coffee Cake one night

And enjoyed its deliciousness Thanksgiving morning...

And cut down some branches to make a fresh garland for our front door (I'll be posting a tutorial soon)

 I love mountain living.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving my dears! I love today. The cooking, the baking, the family & friends. The weather, the warmth of inside, and the promise of tomorrow (always, always decorating for Christmas). And although I'll miss sharing Thanksgiving with all of my family today- I get the great pleasure of celebrating in a cozy little cabin- with the love of my life. Life is good and I am grateful.
