photo montage recap

Hi all! We are having a great year. This summer was super fun with our trip down to Florida. The kids got some time away from us and vice versa. We also got a lot of quality time together. The kids enjoyed camp with One World Adventure Co. Buttercup went on a 5 day backpacking trip with swimming, kayaking, water testing, camping etc. Westley enjoyed day camp with rock climbing, rappelling, kayaking, crafts, and swimming.

This Fall, the Walrus, Westley, and I visited New York City again and spent time with the Page cousins up there as well. This Fall season is turning out spectacular as well. OH! THE COLORS! So nice. Remember to come visit us any time of year. This place is truly enchanted.

I'll try to do a photo montage recap for you here... Love to all! (blogger uploaded in no particular order so I'll try to caption as many as possible)

love our cabin

In an effort to submit our cabin on Cabin Porn, I'm posting some of my favorite pics of our home.

Nestled in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains in Northeast Alabama.
Dining set custom built from fallen timber by a talented man in Mentone, AL. The Universe carving, made from Walnut, is from a fair trade shop in Mentone, Artisans, Ltd. Master craftsman is Guillermo Cevallos from the land of the Incas.

Back of house that faces seasonal view off Lookout Mountain.

View from street.

Facing the road. Newly installed by the hubby. What a fire pit. Love the "seats" he found.

Loving springtime. These flowers have proven loyal for about 3 years now. 

Chair to the left is now gone but had to show the stone work on fireplace.

Dragonfly sunning on the back deck.

Gratuitous bonus view.
