Our Autumn Getaway: Part Two

Warning: Picture Heavy Post

Our first night we spent cozy-ing up to the fire. I wish now I had captured our environment and these moments... but... well, we were just too comfortable and getting that camera out was too much work. 

The Chipmunk was thrilled to have 110% of our attention, however, by day two she was done with us and just wanted to call Grandma. Here she is trying to get a signal. 

We can only take so much sitting and relaxing. We ventured out to see the local countryside.

Little ol' mining town.

Two amazing views. 

Love those chipmunk cheeks and monkey ears


Incredibly blessed,

Our Autumn Getaway: Part One

Warning: Picture heavy post.

Last week we took a break from civilization. Packing up our winter warms; ingredients for a simmering pot of baked potato soup; a few books and a camera- we headed up to a cozy mountain cabin.

It was just the chilly breath of fresh air that we needed.

And the drive was breath-taking. 

Autumn, the year's last, loveliest smile.

Yep. Breath taken.

Thankful Thursday

I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed today. Not about anything huge or significant,  just the to-do's that somehow have all landed in the "as soon as possible"pile all at the same time.

So, I'm taking a break. Time to breath slowly and count my blessings.

1) I have a wonderful husband and beautiful little girl who do not care if I get it all done. {This may be the most important one}

2) We scored some great deals at the JBF Sale last night, and that helps us to live more frugally.

3) The Lord has blessed us with one of the most beautiful Autumn seasons than I can remember.

4) I need to make a grocery list because we need to I get to go  grocery shopping. We have the money to do so. Not the case for everyone.

5) There's a mountain of clean laundry I need to fold... the Lord has kept us clothed.

6) Dinner is already in the crock-pot. No huge mess to clean up at the most weary time of the day.

7) From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I. - Psalm 61:2
