cabin life

posted on: April 16, 2011

remember when i went to the cabin a few weeks back? that's where the last two outfit posts are from, since everyone was wondering where those cool views were. i love the city, but it's so nice to have a getaway with rolling hills and lake views. trip started with us driving two hours in the dark and pouring rain only to realize the key to the cabin was back in vancouver. we tried to turn around on what i like to call "creepy omg we're going to die serial killer road" somewhere in between chilliwack and hope, but ended up having to drive all the way to hope to be able to turn around. thankfully adam and i are pretty laid back because it was a sucky situation but we were able to laugh it off. that friday night is now known as: hope and back and back to hope, the best date everrrr!

tried again to leave saturday morning on the 3.5 hour drive to merritt. it was a winter wonderland on the coquihalla and then you emerge from the mountains into the dry dessert. it's all very strange and magical in beautiful british columbia!

i forget how breathtaking the cabin is until i'm there. the house is filled with the cutest cabin accessories and let's face it, the cabin is nicer than any house i've ever lived in. that's not even including the views of the lake. i love the cabin, i really do. we're so lucky that adam's aunt and uncle are kind enough to let family members use it throughout the year.

  9. Wow. That place looks so amazing and romantic. It's great that you guys have a place to get away.

  10. This place looks AMAZING and so romantic... ;)

    How nice is it to just get away sometimes... love!

    Happy you had a great time! xoxox

  11. You guys are so cute! I remember seeing your tweet about forgetting the keys. It's nice that you're both so laid-back; I'm so high-strung I would've been flipping out like crazy. And you're right, the cabin is amazing. Kudos to your aunt and uncle for having such great decorating taste.

    P.S. I was talking to Lawrence this weekend and he mentioned he saw you and Adam in a Monday night salsa class at Harbour! (This was back when he had regular dance team practices on Monday evenings.) We still need to go dancing sometime!

  12. This could quite possibly be the perfect getaway spot!

    Also - you two are adorable!

  13. I'm so, so in love with your pictures, they look beautiful. And that cabin + location are stunning, I love doing little get aways!! BC is seriously amazing for that.

    AND, can't wait to meet you at our little blogger meet up, SO looking forward. Drinkies & fashion chats, weeeee, here we come!! xx v

  14. That is one amazing view! You and Adam are so adorable and you are so well dressed for a weekend at the cabin :) Also you guys are definitely amazing for being laid back enough to just turn around and go back the next day. I can safely tell you that if it were me and my boyfriend it would be a fight all the way back to Vancouver and then staying in the city for the rest of the weekend :P

    Hope you had fun in Whistler too!

  15. Jesus Christ- You have nice skin!

  16. Such awesome pictures! My own cabin's in Powell River and all my friends have one dispersed somewhere in B.C. and there's nothing I love more than going on a little road trip out to one of them for a weekend. It's a very uniquely Canadian thing I think and I try to do it at least once a month.

    You and your boy are so cute! And I love that ring of yours.

    Alexandra xo

  17. Love the "Michigan" shirt your honey is wearing!! I'm partial to "Michigan State" though, but anything Michigan is OK with me!! :)
