A Little Cabin In the Woods.

I’m sorry for my lack of posts as of lately. I truthfully haven’t had much going besides work and the occasional date night. As with most places in the Midwest, the snow really put a damper on getting outside on a more regular basis during the first couple of months this year. The two kiddos I nanny for are just too little to spend a ton of time outside, therefore we Β stayed inside their house…for the majority of January and February. UGH. Needless to say, I went a bit stir crazy (as did they!)

One of the few highlights over the (slow) last couple of months was our Boden family getaway to Hocking Hills in February.

As a Christmas gift to Marty’s side of the family we rented a few nights at a charming little cabin in Hocking Hills. (We actually did this two years ago and it went over really well so we decided to go for it again! Marty and I are more about ‘experiences’ and would prefer to buy someone an ‘experience’ instead of something materialistic. There is such a thing as too many sweaters.)

We spent the majority of time relaxing, eating, playing board games and just catching up but we were able to hike for a bit one afternoon (unfortunately we couldn’t stay out too long due to the freezing temperatures and slippery trails.) Β The few days away was MUCH needed and, as always, I love to spend time with family.

Do you enjoy family getaways?Β

  1. I nanny too so I love reading about your experiences. :) What are some cool rainy/snowy day activities that you like to do?

    Our family doesn’t have many getaways but I am planning to drive up the 101 through the redwoods this summer to visit my mom.

  2. I love cabins in the woods! It’s so nice to get away for a little bit. Also, side note, you have great eyebrows!

  3. Such beautiful pictures!! Looks like you had a blast! And I’m right there with ya! I love family get aways!! :)

  4. I always love it when you pop in to post!! This looks like such a fun time, YES I love getaways with family. They are so fun, and fulfilling in ways you just can’t get with friends!

  5. Love the idea of buying experiences rather than gifts. The older I get, the more I love that idea. I just bought my boyfriend a rock climbing outing in Wisconsin for the two of us come summer for his birthday! You remember experiences so much better than material items!

  6. Gorgeous pictures as always :) I love family getaways. They are definitely a life favorite of mine. I can appreciate the feeling of being stir crazy during the winter months. So happy that the warmer months are on their way. And so happy that you checked in on your blog!

      1. The sheer luxury of spending time with your family away from the city, the crowd and the noise along with the laughter and good food. :D
        Oh, yes. A little longer. I’m really looking forward to the summer.
