a weekend in the woods


 


Over the holiday weekend we were lucky enough to fin some time to travel up north to our friends cabin.

The cinematic landscape had my heart swooning from the moment we stepped on the property. We tooled around the land where they'll be having there wedding over the 4th of July, letting the pups run their hearts out for hours on end. Daisy swam in the pond without a life jacket (I know, that sounds crazy, but she still doesn't seem to know what she's doing, the poor thing). Since we rescued her three years ago, I don't think I've ever seen her with such an adorably dopey puppy smile for so long, and I'm still baffled at how we managed to fit the three of us in a twin bed without any injuries. We painted wedding signs in the rain, and built bonfires the size of small house. 

During this perfect pre-wedding planning event, Ross and Robert made the wedding menu for us to try, we sampled all the wine, and all the other drinks, and some more drinks. Basically, everything you could want from a weekend away. To be secluded like this with friends, on land that feels so incredibly special was the much needed reminder to slow it all down, hit the reset button, put the phone down, get muddy. 

Robert and I drove back to Philadelphia early on Monday morning, still muddy and paint covered, borrowed a truck, loaded what we had packed and camped out at our new place. It's been a crazy couple of days, and we couldn't be happier about it.
