One Word: Rustic

Wanna know why I have the best husband in the universe?? Okay, maybe that’s taking it a little to the extreme since I’m sure you ladies each have your fair share of male perfection by your side, but let me just tell you what MINE did over the weekend…

It all started a few months ago, right before all the craziness unfolded around my job. I knew it was coming but didn’t really have a game plan set in stone. That said, I knew things were about to get a little crazy and more than a little stressful. So John, the incredibly thoughtful guy that he is, planned a weekend getaway in advance in anticipation of the relaxation we both were desperately going to need. He decided to keep it a secret up until the day of, so we piled into the car, overnight bags packed and situated in the back seat, and then we just drove. I decided not to ask questions, so I simply gazed in blissful ignorance out the car window as signs of city life faded away, blending into open fields and farmhouses. About an hour and a half later we were driving pretty near vertically up a mountain. We ended up so high, that there was snow on the ground from the aftereffects of hurricane Sandy.

The pavement eventually turned into gravel and we found ourselves pulling up to a beyond gorgeous, beyond picturesque, BEYOND perfect cabin nestled in the woods. It was surrounded by little private ponds, complete with snow covered docks and a porch set with matching adirondack chairs. It was exactly the little oasis I needed…We had a fire blazing in no time, feet up and books in hand. I couldn’t have asked for a better mini vacation.

SO all this to say, that when I sat down to compose this week’s “One Word” feature, there was only one word that came to mind: Rustic. I hope you enjoy this collection of cozy inspiration, the perfect way to encapsulate my sensory memories from the weekend…
