I am here....enjoying life lived outside...losing track of time. Enjoying sunsets and moonlit evenings. My parents and grandparents built a camp in the Adirondack Mountains so I was introduced to this lifestyle at an early age.  Camp fires every evening. Joe is the marshmallow toaster.

 This cracks me up. We went to a large antique show in Bouckville, NY (over 1,000 vendors), and when I was looking at the photos, I noticed that my shirt matched my lunch. LOL

Thank you for stopping by! I've been spending every possible minute in the great outdoors, and have unplugged for the summer. I'll get back into the swing of blogging once Joe goes go back to school in September.

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. oh my gosh what amazing photos, you looks so happy too, I love that you match your lunch, good planning!!! or happy accident, lol
    Everything seems to slow down once school goes back in,

  2. Sounds like you're having a great time-enjoy:@)

  3. I thinks it's serendipitous that your top matches your food:)

    Sounds Idyllic Debbie~

  4. This sounds important to learn to have some down time..your family was smart to teach you to do glad you have had this time in the Adirondacks..
    Love, Mona

  5. Oh that lobster looks wonderful, Debbie, and what a cute coincidence that you match :)

    My sentiments exactly on the outdoor and down-time during the summer!

  6. Sounds like a wonderful way to spend the summer! Joni

  7. I'm always happy to hear of others who enjoy the great outdoors and simple pleasure like roasting marshmallows! Enjoy your electronics break! Linda

  8. I love your coordinated outfit with your lunch, sweet friend. Enjoy every single minute in the great outdoors! xo

  9. The last weeks of summer are so sweet. We often get our best weather now and can sit outside in the evening. I think it is very stylish that your lunch matches your

  10. Enjoy our unplugged time. I bet y'all have such a great time @ your camp. Summertime is all about family and spending as much time as you can outdoors. We've had such a strange summer....unseasonably cool temperatures and rain almost everyday!

    You look so cute matching your lunch! :D


  11. I have been unplugged too! Tried to keep one post a week. Guess that seems to be a theme for this summer. It will be fun to get back into things. Your lunch looks fabulous!


I'm so happy you decided to stop by my blog. Please leave a comment as I enjoy hearing from each and every one of you!
