Relax and Unwind

I just returned home to the sunshine state of Florida
from a week’s vacation up north in the deep woods of Wisconsin.

I feel so lucky to have traveled up to spend time with my Dad in his cabin.
I had such a wonderful time.
It was so nice to relax, think of nothing, and visit with Daddy.
Dad and I spent a lot of time sitting by his cozy woodstove
in his cabin talking for hours.
These conversations are the ones I treasure the most . . .
discussing life and whatever is on our minds and in our hearts.
There is something magical and peaceful about my Dad’s log cabin home.
The cabin was built in the 1800’s and sits in a valley surrounded by
twenty five acres of a living enchanting forest.
While taking our yard walks {as Dad calls them}, I snapped a few photos.

During the last few days of my visit it started to snow.
I haven’t seen snow in years so I was super excited, 
I even went outside and shoveled off the steps clearing a path

leading up to the front door.

Since I have been back,
I have been a busy bee shopping and preparing for Christmas.
Happy Holidays.
Thanks for stopping by and visiting my blog.
Smiles, Paula
