Cabin Weekend and Fireplaces

summerfield

This weekend I hosted a lot of friends at my parents cabin on Monteagle Mountain.  It was the prefect weather for a cabin weekend:  freezing cold.  So about 18 of my friends and several dogs spent a lot of time in front of a bonfire outside or in front of the fireplace inside.  I don’t know how to build a fire but if I ever do have a working fireplace you can bet that it will be a REAL one. And I will learn how to build a fire in it…

After being freezing last weekend, I’m going to Birmingham for a wedding this weekend where it is expected to reach 72 degrees.  In January.  Crazy.

[sorry for the blurry pictures!  And thank you to Michelle and Jennifer for letting me steal your pictures :)]

Weekend getaway

I’ve been looking forward to spending the weekend here with friends… And it’s finally here. I can’t wait to relax, watch football, go swimming, grill out, and have some cocktails. And the weather is going to be PERFECT! The last picture is my favorite :)

Still enjoying a little piece of heaven…

On Tuesday, my parents made one of their dreams come true by purchasing this little piece of heaven on Monteagle mountain…

I cannot wait to share more pictures because it is GORGEOUS here! The cabin is located in Sewanee, Tennessee, on the ridge of Monteagle mountain, which is about an hour from Chattanooga. I don’t know how I’ll be able to leave here tomorrow :(

Cabin Fever

Lately I’ve been dreaming of a rustic cabin.  And its making me want to make an escape to somewhere charming in the woods like this…

Just a little shack… nothing too over the top… :)

Maybe its that unfinished wood.  Maybe its the stone fireplaces.  Maybe its the wooden beams across the vaulted ceiling.  Or maybe its this hot weather that is rapidly approaching… Whatever it is, these pictures make me want to go somewhere cozy!

If anyone has a cabin they want to let me borrow for a long weekend, please feel free to leave a comment :)
