mountain mama, river belly

on the salmon river - 33 weeks

this weekend we took a brief but wonderful road trip. we stayed in a favorite lodge on our favorite river. we spent the days swimming, hot tub soaking, throwing rocks into the river and watching people catch fish, both big and small. the kids crafted fishing poles out of driftwood and string. the evenings were filled with board games, more swimming and soaking and hot cocoa and fresh cookies, compliments of the lodge. i spent a fair share of the weekend knitting and drinking tea. while we drove we spotted several deer and a beautiful red fox.

we are home now, and home is a good place to be. home... made even better by mountain getaways and family fun!

there is no place like right here, friends- happy monday!

That's a beautiful picture of you, Erika! The mossy green and the color of your hair plus purple and grey= very pretty.

Mountain getaways really do make coming home that much sweeter.

You look incredible! I love the belly. :)

We have to take vacations more often. We just need to go. Even if we are only an hour away, it is important to just get out there... I am inspired by you today.

Love Val
