#6 Haven


30 Minus 2 Days of Writing 

Or as I like to refer to it... the OMG are you an idiot for agreeing to do this writing challenge? See the other masochists participants Nicky has strong-armed invited  over at We Work for Cheese.

To me haven elicits thoughts of a getaway, somewhere where you can escape the world, a place where you can relax, and recharge. 
I have come to find this in the mountains.
My husband has had this cabin in the family since his grandfather built it in the 1930's. it has become our haven. 


We have been going there as often as we can.
It is easier now with just the two of us and our pups (who love it there)'

  6. That is a really nice haven. I feel the same way about Madeira Beach in Florida. That kind of haven is a nice to recharge those internal batteries.

  8. It's undeniably beautiful. But I'd be frightened to stay there. I'd be worried about forest fires. Look how close those trees are to the LOG cabin. You're just asking to get crisped.

  9. Okay, I am only going to ask ONE more time. WHEN are you going to adopt me? I wanna go to the cabin in the woods too. :)

    We grew up with out family's too. It was so rustic, no electric, no running water - and if someone offered it back to me right now I pay 'em a million bucks for it the memories are that good. Sigh - everyone went and passed and it was sold before us kids knew it happened. I miss it. Enjoy yours It looks AWESOME!

  10. It's beautiful: A cabin in the snow, fire crackling in the fireplace, some lovely red wine... When can I visit? ;)

  12. How gorgeous! What neck of the woods is that, Barb? It looks so peaceful. It looks like a place where no angry bloggers would ever find me... I mean, um...

  13. It's about half way between Gettysburg & Chambersburg in south central Pennsylvania, in a forest which is right along Rt. 30. Looks like we are going for a long weekend not this week but next week-I can't wait!!!

  14. My heart jumped in my throat when I saw and read this. It is like the beach house .... I am truly at HOME there... my mom and dad built it so long ago, before the Outer Banks was a huge vacation spot. Mom still has it and we go every weekend in the summer. When my car pulls up in the driveway, I am at my safe haven.

  15. It looks cold. I would like it if it was not for the fact that it looks cold and I don't think I have enough pairs of socks to make my feet warm. :)

  16. How enchanting! I would spend every holiday there. In fact, I think you should invite all of us over for Easter. Book your flights, people!

  17. I've never had the opportunity to stay in a log cabin, and I've never had many opportunities to experience snow. That picture looks cozy and inviting. I should seek out a log cabin in a snowy area and spend some time there one winter.

  18. It looks like a picture postcard to me. Such a gorgeous place and I am imagining open fires and hot cocoa.
