|The upstairs 'bunk room' before the dividers went up|
|The table started out this way, but I liked the|
leaf being in all of the time, so it's turned the
opposite direction now. That view!!
|Going fishing with my little guy. One of my|
|First full weekend in and we had a trip to the ER for stitches.|
Braden nearly cut his thumb in half trying out
the final project in a whittling book. Note:
start at the beginning. :)
|Christmas at the cabin|
|Craig's specialty: poached eggs with hollandaise and|
|Our Christmas tree. Gibson and I decided|
that we needed one last minute, so we
ended up with a wonky 4 ft tall leftover. The
paper star was the single decoration, adding
to the ridiculous look that we both adored!
|Legos for Gib (thanks, Santa!) and Braden listening to music.|
|The dividers are up. It closes the space off a little, but now|
we don't have middle of the night freak outs over someone
getting kicked or a pillow going over the edge. They have
their own little spaces now.
|The boys going scouting for deer tracks. The son of our |
builders, who also helped build our cabin, took the boys
out scouting for signs of deer and then took them out
for a special hunting day. They had a blast! Thanks, Nick!!
|Craig in his favorite spot: the kitchen. I am so happy with|
they way this room turned out. Simple and everything
visible at a glance.
|My favorite spot: the corner of the couch. I can see the|
woods outside and almost the entire cabin from here.
|The cabin at twilight. I love looking at|
the night sky when we're here. It's so dark!!
|A few of the books that we have at the cabin. I'm working |
my way through the stack.
The layout of the cabin was so much fun to plan. Craig was SO, so great and just went with whatever I came up with (even when his face clearly showed that he thought I was a complete lunatic, i.e.: you want to paint our brand new wood floors BLUE?! WHAT the?!) and there's not a single thing that I would change about the entire cabin. I love every detail. Love, love, love. Nearly everything that is in the cabin was brought in the first month and I haven't wanted or needed to add anything else. It's simple and uncluttered and I adore it.
Oh, and then there are the walks. Lots and lots of walks in the woods. The quiet is such a gift. I cherish it.
Happy Friday, sweet friends!! ♥

The thing that is really hard and really amazing is giving up on being perfect and beginning the work of becoming yourself.
Happy Wednesday, sweet friends! ♥
