Starting the New Year with a Snowy Get-away!

As if we don't have enough snow at our house, we took the girls up north a few hours away, where they have even MORE snow. 

We stayed several days with our best friends who have a vacation home in the Traverse City area.

We had lots of snowy adventures on the sledding hills.

The girls even got to experience ice skating on a lake.

We took lots of long walks in the woods.

And drank lots of hot chocolate.

I even found my future cabin (just kidding) but isn't it quaint? 

It was a lovely bit of respite and a wonderful way to kick-off 2014.

I'm back to work tomorrow (Friday).

Anybody else feel like these past two weeks have just flown by?

I could use another week at home to get caught up from all our holiday celebrations!

Oh, yes! I feel like the time has flown by, and I'm not even returning to work anywhere!

Stay warm!

What a wonderful getaway, Kim. I am so glad you had a wonderful holiday season with your family. I think we are going to head up to Munising, MI this weekend- why have just 3 feet of snow here when we can have 6 feet there? lol

Happy back to work day tomorrow- xo Daina

Happy 2014, Kim! That cabin is the best! I have to say - I am a big fan of Christmas falling on Wednesday. These last two weeks have flown by - but it feels like we got a much longer holiday season than usual! I'm a little sad to see it go, but I really enjoy those winter months when every project seems do-able. Wishing you and your wonderful family the best of new years.

The scenery is so beautiful, I am so happy that you all had a wonderful time! I find that time is flying by so fast too.

Donna said...

What, you don't have enough snow?! Sounds like you had a great time in TC, I really love that area. More snow headed our way, 8-10 inches, yikes!

Courtney said...

What a fun get away. My aunt and uncle went to TC this summer for the cherry festival and they said it was such a beautiful area. I agree, I could use another week of break.

Pam Kessler said...

What a fun getaway! And yes, the last few weeks have flown by and now we're into January and February which drags and seems like ten months! I can't wait until spring!

Hi Kim, what fun to play in the snow with the whole family! I have been off for a couple of weeks too, although I have kept busy I feel like it has been forever!
Come check out my blog, I just posted about my miniature project reveal!
Happy New Year!
