That fire looks good. It's been in the 40's at night. I'd be pulling my rocker a little closer.

marmee said...

i wish you could be here. it is wonderful!

it is actually not that cold here but with the outdoor fireplace we don't mind.

Q said...

I am with you in spirit.
Do get some rest and take long woodsy walks.

You did enter heaven. I am homesick for the mtns. You have a beautiful place for some R&R. I hope you really enjoy it all.

marmee said...

arissa mae,

don't be green. we will do this again when you can come. we miss you being here. check out my new quote.


a slice of heaven has fallen off and we found it. can't make myself do much of anything here but rest and recuperate.

I could use a trip to someplace called tranquility. :) I hope you enjoy yourselves & get lots of relaxation.

Beautiful pictures and words. Tranquility in more ways than one. I could live like this...close to nature, peace and quiet, relaxation. The cabin is awesome but the company is awesomer!! Love you mom, Rachel
