weekend in ellijay

see more here.

we spent the weekend celebrating my dad's birthday in ellijay, georgia. we found this magical cabin here. it was perfect weather and a wonderful way to welcome my handsome brother, jake, home from americorp!

- our incredible view. we were literally on top of rainbow mountain.
- i loved the knotty pine ceilings.
- my daddy, aging very gracefully.
- i was so excited when i found this bottle of poppy wine, and that is the best damn cake i've had in a long time. first spotted at parker's 2nd birthday party.
- rachel spent the majority of the weekend in this position. the charley harper puzzle she gave me was so hard! we gave up once we got to the sky.
- matilda looking like a little cherub in the loft. she loved climbing around up there.
- springer mountain looks like a fairy land.
- what can i say? i love this man.
- i love my family and that matilda looks touched by an angel.

{not pictured: matilda stepping in dog poop and freaking out, us having too much wine fun in the not-so-hot tub, sam's pipe being thrown over the porch railing by my assistant in crime, matilda singing in her sleep. (read: i.got.very.little.), me gagging and watching this through my fingers, and lastly the beautiful amicalola falls (i forgot my camera and my wonderful husband drove home to get it).}

this is so funny. I'm laughing about Matilda singing in her sleep and the not-so-hot hot tub.
And the picture of Tilda with that beam of light on her! Wow!
