LOG CABIN CHRISTMAS

It’s been a dream for a long time, to live in the Blue Ridge Mountains in a log cabin … and after 58 years, it finally came true! This morning I sat in the living room and drank coffee while I watched the birds warming themselves in the bright sunshine on my porch railing.

  

The Chrstmas Tree is up …

The tree looks so jolly and happy in the living room!  The birds on the tree look as if they just flew through the front door to warm themselves! Once again, I have added the vintage ornaments inherited from family members! 

 

Table and stockings up the stairs …

The table has never looked more inviting with the stockings behind it going up the stairs.  I’ll have eight people here Christmas and wanting a stocking for each person, the mantle seemed crowded no matter how I arranged them.  It was Eric’s idea to run them up the stairs. 

Yesterday, I made a quick drive up to Serenity Mountain to see the property in Plott Creek where the permanent house will be built.  It was so peaceful and quiet that I didn’t exactly want to leave.  I walked down by the creek and looked up to where the house will be and couldn’t believe it all was coming into fruition. In my imagination, I could almost see the house sitting there in the trees … the noisy creek babbling at my feet.

After I got back home, I had some homemade rustic soup and called it a day.  ❤ 

Nite Nite!

House was rented from Select Homes in Waynesville, NC

Little Nostalgic Yesterday …

I don’t suppose I need to go into a long dissertation on how very proud of my son I am … how many times I looked at him yesterday and went “Wow …. that was my little boy!”  I sat and wiped tears through the entire thing  … happiness, sadness, pride, but most of all relief for him.  He did it.

Both my kids went to school full time and put in over forty hours a week at work.  They already know what their careers are like, and I believe they’ve both found the perfect place.

But back to Alex, he loved every moment … looking back every couple of minutes and smiling.  I could see the happiness all over him!
