Last weekend my lil bro graduated from Carnegie Mellon University with a Master’s degree in English/Rhetoric. Way to make a big sis proud lil bro! Quite the smart cookie he is… let me just tell ya!
After a dinner with family & friends in celebration of his graduation, someone threw out the idea of heading to the cabin for the night. That’s all I needed to hear.
An overnight at one of my favorite places to be. My special getaway release.
So everyone made a dash home to pack up a few necessities for the overnight & started the trip up the mountain for some much needed rest & relaxation; or some adult beverages, a camp fire in the rain, awesome tunes & great peeps, conversation & laughs.
Time just seems to escape you there … as the last of us crawled into bed a bit after 5:00 AM! This is one place where sleep isn’t as much of a necessity as for me it’s seemingly easier to function on little to no sleep at all night after night.
This impromptu, spur of the moment overnight at the cabin was just what I needed. In the immediate it provided me a carefree night to kick back & chill listening to tunes with great people and not worry about all that needed to be done. It also served as a preview to and reminder of what’s to come & look forward to in the summer months.
A get away without having to hop on a plane (though I’m thinking it’s about time I get on one of those things!). A momentary lapse in time that allows me to leave the worries at home… putting on my comfy cabin clothes, lounging by the fire, taking walks along the creek … maybe even a game or two of corn hole or beer pong if we’re feeling at all ambitious.
I so needed cabin time… looking forward to lots more night like last Saturday throughout the summer to get me through & keep me sane!
