Small Travels: The Mountains of North Carolina

Linville Falls, NC Life’s been crazy lately. I’ve had too much work to do and not enough time to do it all. That’s why a couple of weeks ago, we took a much needed break to celebrate the birthday of a good friend. We traveled up to the mountains of my home state, stayed in a hundred-year-old cabin and took in all the colors of fall.

I feel so lucky to live in North Carolina. It’s such a beautiful state. Plus, we have the beach and the mountains. They don’t call it a vacation wonderland for nothin’! If you’ve never been, I highly recommend it.

The cabin is owned by our friends’ parents. It’s gorgeous and pretty much my dream home.

We don’t plan on leaving the Airstream any time soon, but this cabin did have me dreaming of a mountain home.

A girl can dream, right?

Hiking boots

Can I brag about these boots for a minute? I had been wanting some like this ever since I saw the movie, Wild. But with an almost $300 price tag, I couldn’t justify the purchase. Lo and behold, I found these beauties at our local flea market for $25 buck-a-roos. The steal of the century. And perfect to hike around Linville Falls.

The holiday season is coming up fast. It can be a stressful time of year, but I’m looking forward to taking some time off work, traveling a bit and relaxing.

If slow food is a thing, can we make slow holidays a thing too?

    Hi — I’ve been a reader of yours since I saw your home on tinyhouseswoon. Great post — I love the cabin you stayed in. 🙂

    That Cabin is now MY DREAM HOME TOO!! I grew up in a 300yo stone house, but this is even more beautiful if I dare say so. We’ve been looking into small-not -really-tiny homes, and while I’m into container buildings, the lovely husband wants to live in a wood building and don’t cares for the iron. This Cabin might just have won me over to his Version.
