Little Cabin in the Woods

At the beginning of March, Mom, Dad, David, and I looked at a little cabin by the lake.  I was immediately smitten.  Like Goldilocks discovering that all of Little Bears things fit just right, it seemed the perfect fit.  Two little bedrooms and two bathrooms and a nice size kitchen and living area.  The backyard was already fenced, and the porch oozed charm.
 Mom and I started decorating long before it was official. :)  I couldn't resist this old Coleman lantern and twig stool.
 Or a new quilt, perfect for one of the red bedrooms!
 Every chance I could, we visited flea markets in search of a table and chairs that was just the right size.
 There are no closets in the bedrooms, so we were also hunting a wardrobe to hold a few things.
 It seems like a long wait, but was less than a month from the time we looked that we were moving things in.  After closing, Mom and Dad moved in the new-to-us table, and then
 immediately hit the docks for some fishing!  I hope Dad gets to do a lot of this down there...as long as I don't have to eat it.  The dock is just a short walk away, down a gentle hill.
We celebrated the first night with pizza - of course!  
 It was hard to leave and go back to work, but David and I were able to return the next night and spend the weekend.  Mom and Dad came on Saturday with more furniture, and it really started to look homey!
 Riley was a little unsure of where exactly he was supposed to lay before there was furniture.  It took a while, but he finally accepted that the dog bed was his! ;)

Thanks! That was fun to revisit the past
several weeks of planning & moving in!
Looking forward to many more weeks (years!)
of lake & campfire memories!
Love, MOM
