Cabin in the Woods


We spent the 4day weekend at a cabin in the woods.

Friday we took our time crossing the mountain. We stopped at Twede's in North Bend. This is the restaurant featured in the TV show Twin Peaks. We had tasty burgers and picked up a cherry pie for the cabin. After a short grocery trip (we always buy too much food!) we were back on I-90 heading east.

The cabin was in Ronald, WA just outside of Roslyn (Anyone seen Northern Exposure? It was shot here). It was gorgeous! Log furniture, stone fireplaces, the works!

We spent Saturday romping in the snow. The sledding hill was right across the culdesac! We spent hours inner tubing, riding the quad and snowmobile, and playing with the dogs in the snow. We wore ourselves, and the dogs, out.

Sunday was for relaxation. After a huge and delicious breakfast we lounged for most of the morning. Watching TV and playing Wii. The girls went into Roslyn for the afternoon. We visited a cute small art gallery, took pictures, and had a beer at The Brick. The Brick is Washington's first bar! It was a neat old place. The town is small, but it has a deep history. It was fun to do a little exploring.

Monday morning came too fast. Before we knew it we were packing up and hitting the road for the long (2hr) drive home. We are rested, and worn out, in the best way. It was an excellent way to spend a long weekend.

Congratulations, Erik and Sherrie!

Last night Jeremy and I stayed in downtown Bellevue for Erik and Sherrie's wedding. It was a small an intimate ceremony. They did a great job individualizing such an important day. They were both equally represented in everything from the location, decor, and the ceremony.

Sherrie had more faith than I deserved and asked me to do her flowers. I made her bouquet, one for her Matron of Honor, and 12-13 centerpieces. Thankfully Sherrie has very classic taste and I was able to simply work with white roses. I think they came together well and everyone seemed to really like them.

We are so very happy for both Erik and Sherrie and are honored to be a part of their big day. It's not often that you see two individuals so fit for one another. We are lucky to have them as such good friends and look forward to watching them continue to build their lives together.

Congrats you two!
