Happy Friday!

Last year was kind of an insane year for our family for all sorts of reasons, and there are no signs of things slowing down, so we've been looking for a place to get away to on the weekends (or even play hooky during the week!). Someplace that's within driving distance that we could run off to at a moment's notice (i.e, not have to worry about packing), and we kind of settled on Lake Arrowhead. Ahh... Even just typing it, I can feel my blood pressure dropping.

Ninety minutes from us, we found a little slice of heaven to escape to. At least, it will be once I get my little fingers on it. It's definitely a fixer of the late 90's variety: lots of tongue and groove (that's T&G to you city folk), weird paint applications and lacquer. So. Much. Lacquer.  Exhibit A:

Exhibit B, etc...:

Hope you'll follow along as we update our woodsy weekend abode!
