I feel thankful to have a place to escape to, to call my own. Our cabin is nestled on a teal lake in the Olympics - Washington. It's a wonderful place to restore especially when you need it like our last couple weeks being so sick. I deeply believe there is much value in growing your children in the out doors, and doing so as much as possible. If there were few convictions I have, that would be one of them. We spent the weekend exploring Mt. Ellinor and discovered a beautiful frozen waterfall. After warming up with some hot chocolate we spent our evening watching Despicable me 2 (absolutely hilarious if you need a family movie recommendation) and the sugar cookies, oh the sugar cookies... they were delicious!
