cabin fever


after 5 months of looking for that perfect perch in the city and 2 "give it all you got" offers, we have returned to our original plan: keep our apt in the city and find a cabin north for easy weekend getaways.

it is brutal in the sf housing market and i just don't think the time is right for us and our hearts are still set on napa valley, redwoods, rivers and quiet. B-mo needs woods to roam and chase his woodland creatures. for him, a fertile smelling round.

we are heading up to look at 3 cabins tomorrow. fingers crossed again that that little rustic and original hobbit home is waiting with our names written in the pine.

beautiful sentiments....love the phrase 'fertile smelling ground...'

here's hoping you find just the right thing...

Great idea. Best of both worlds. Two houses are better than one is what they say right? Or two heads...I can never remember.

Good luck!

I've always thought it ideal to relieve city life with a country getaway and vice versa - sounds to me like you're heading for the ideal solution

This sounds like a wonderful idea...city house/country house, what could be better! B-mo is so fortunate to have such thoughtful parents...watch out little creatures!!! xo

(i know you'll find the *perfect* place)

Perfection! Fingers AND toes are crossed for you! Have a great weekend!

best of luck to you! Thats exactly what we did.. we couldn't decide on a neighborhood here in Chicago to settle down in so we kept our rental loft and bought a lakehouse / vacation house in N/E Indiana.. it's a 3 hour drive through the heart of Amish country to get there and you can just feel the city stress melt away the closer to the lake we get...

you are all a wonderful part of my creative community and i always get a thrill to read your comments and am equally shocked with excitement.

thanks for the kind thoughts...more to come on the cabin fever frenzy.

its past time to own some piece of land somewhere....
