Stuff: A Cabin by the Lake

There must be something in the fall weather that makes you want to run off to a cabin, cuddle by the fire, and hang out with the ones you love. My mind keeps coming back to the “homie” feel in Dan in Real Life. Let’s be honest, don’t we all wish our parents had that lake house that was big enough to house all the kids+grand children+dogs+cats+boyfriends+girlfriends+friends+whoever else was invited to our exclusive family getaway? I swear I can smell the old quilts and feel the breeze coming through the open windows. I can remember days of being packed in a room full of beds and annoying cousins. Waking up to coffee and Grandma’s homemade pancakes.

Sure feels like home to me.

It may not be a “modern” cabin (Cale just reminded me it’s not really a “cabin” it’s a house… whatever architect!) but there is nothing like being surrounded by the things you love, especially family. Cale and I can’t wait for the day we have our old house that the kids can come home to. The place where the living room becomes a stage and the front lawn is transformed into our own workout studio.

Now that’s what I call quality design.
