This past weekend, the boys and I headed up to the island for a friend's birthday party. It was the perfect day for a trip up to the island. After the boys
One day, we'll have enough to set up a simple yurt (I know... I'm a nerd!) or a small log cabin complete with a sleeping porch. It isn't on the radar yet, but it will be. I want my boys to know the same woods and feel the same fondness. So please enjoy my trip down memory lane (all I had was my trusty iPhone)... and a little vision of the future courtesy of The Binder.
|An old talking tree at the South end of our property. Sadly, the new neighbor has cleared much of the forest to make room for horses.|
|An old nurse log that that has almost become part of the earth again.|

And this beautiful property... Toad Hall. It's the gorgeous property of Kreis and Sandy Beall and is actually composed of five log cabins (via Architectural Digest).
|So we don't have the pond, but still. Can't you just see it?|
|An amazing screened porch!|
|Two-room Tadpole Cottage... I love everything about it!|
|A dreamy bedroom...|
|Picturesque cutting gardens designed by Mary Palmer. Truthfully, I'd rip out half the flowers and replace them with veggies. :)|
Maybe if I start saving my tax returns this will happen sooner rather than later! Not likely though. I'm still looking at the ugliest garage door on earth. Someday...
