Autumn Getaway

The front porch of our sweet cabin.
 An Autumn Getaway to Lake Superior

for a boy and a girl
and a little canoe
staying in a sweet little cabin

sharing time outdoors
evening campfires

revisiting goals and making new goals
talking about growing boys and a soon to be empty nest

this little getaway was perfect 
just what we needed!

The below photos are of our sweet little cabin.
It was just perfect for the two of us. 
The kitchen was red. A red fridge, microwave, toaster and coffee maker. 
Soft lamps and candles making it cozy.

 We had a fantastic time canoeing, hiking, touring apple orchards, antiquing and enjoying campfires in the evening. It was just what we both needed. Sometimes you don't even realize you need a break from the day to day. Oh my, was this good for us as a couple. We had lots to talk about as our lives are changing as our boys are growing up and moving on. Sharing goals of where we want to be in the next five years. It was a fantastic getaway.

I will share photos of our hikes, canoeing and more.

Have a great weekend!


  1. Carla what a sweet little cabin and what a nice weekend for the two of you. Love that little red refrigerator in the kitchen. Adorable. The cabin looked very cozy. Glad you had a wonderful time.

  2. Carla, what a dreamy little home...oh my goodness, it looks so sweet and charming. That tiny red fridge is adorable. And changing times call for a reboot. I totally get it. We need to do the same thing. Sounds amazing. xxoo

  3. How wonderful! The view of the woods from your cabin is so pretty, and the cabin is really unique and lovely. I especially like the red kitchen!

  4. I'm so glad it was just what you and Jeremy needed! Here's to many many more happy memories for you and your family! That cabin looks SO cute! I love the red kitchen and the bed, the wood walls. All of it!

  5. What a perfect little cabin in the woods. The Great Lakes are such great getaway spots, aren't they? We camped at Lake Huron this Summer for a week on Tawas Point. You not only have the big water, but you are blessed with woods, sky, and wilderness. You can tell by your post that this is just what you needed. xo

  6. It looks perfect. So glad you got to getaway and refresh yourself.

  7. Oh Carla, I can feel your joy and refreshment in this posting!
    What a precious little "red" cabin the two of you were blessed to enjoy, not to mention all the other pleasures you experienced while away.
    Your time as husband and wife, alone, makes for great times to think and talk about life. Good for you!
    I look forward to more of your. :-)


  8. Oops! Ha!
    I look forward to more of your photos. :-)

  9. It's getting away from real life and reconnecting. Very important. Looks like somewhere my husband and I would enjoy.

  10. Taking a break every now and again is so important. Glad you had a good time.

  11. What a wonderful getaway! Glad you enjoyed it so much!

  12. Good for you! We need to do that, too, although we've been empty-nesters for several years now. It's actually nice, especially if your kids live nearby and visit regularly. :)

  13. I love the look of that amazing cute cabin with red accents

  14. What a darling little cabin! You really do sound (write) like it was such a blessing. Couples do need these times and it was smart of you both to make time for it. I love all the things you managed to do together while away.

  15. Lovely!! I am so glad you both got away and had such a great time.

  16. So pleased you enjoyed your get-away.
    The cabin looks great, I enjoyed your photographs.

    All the best Jan
