Weekend in the Mountains

Did you get to relax this weekend? Sometimes it's hard to find the time, but it's so important to take time for the simple things. We headed north to our camp in the mountains, there is still plenty of snow for winter activities despite the temperature being around 40. We had the wood burning stove going, it was nice and toasty, so to cool off I went outdoors to finish a glass of wine.

The weather was perfect for building a snowman. It was soooo much fun to be a kid again, and I have to thank my friend Pam for gifting me with this wonderful Snowman in a Box for Christmas.

Kiki enjoys going to the camp just as much as we do. Her friend Chuck always comes by for a visit, and then goes home for a nap. She has a little too much puppy in her for Chuck :-)

I hope you had an enjoyable weekend.

Hello, I'm Debbie.I enjoy hiking, kayaking, cross country skiing and snowshoeing in the Adirondack Mountains (thus Mountain Breaths). I live in Upstate NY with my supportive husband and have three precious sons..


  1. Snowman in a box! That is really cute! Looks like you had a great weekend! Camp sounds great!

  2. Sounds like you were able to check off several things from your list this weekend(if not all). LOVE the snowman. What a great gift. Your new background is cute. *wink* Hope you have fun playing around with it. So glad you had a nice relaxing weekend.

  3. Oh cute, Debbie. The snowman kit is a new one to me. All the snow is pretty to see. Easy to see why you can relax there!

  4. A wood-burning fire and your place in the mountains reminds me so much of my parents' cottage in northern Wisconsin on a lake, Debbie. I can still smell the pines and the fire in my mind.

    Your snowman is adorable! Who'd have thought of packaging the ingredients? Cute!

    You have a wonderful life - enjoy every second!

  5. Love your new border, Debbie!
    Looks like a peaceful weekend, nice and cozy!
    CTS had snowmen in a box kits, they were so cute. Gsons teacher gave one to each child as a Cmas sweet..

  6. What a wonderful weekend you must have had! I just love the snow surrounded cabin shot and to read of the crackling fire and going outside with a glass of wine just sounds so RELAXING! How wonderful it must be to have this camp to escape the "dish" holding up under the weight of the snow? I had to take a broom and scrape mine off last month.
    I love the new border for Valentine's week!

  7. What a great weekend - ws trying to make out the reflections in your wine glass!!

    Love the Snowman in a Box..great idea! Just happy we don't have that amount of snow anymore..but then there's March left!

    Cute border...

  8. How cute! Your cottage looks lovely and so does all the snow! Ours has all melted away.

  9. Debbie, cute, cute, post.... Lucky Kiki having a handsome friend like chuck.

    I've never seen "Build-your-own-Snowman". What a clever idea!

    Your blog is very prettily decorated.
