The Honeymoon (Originally Posted on 3/13/08)

We drove for 6 hours after our wedding and reception to arrive at our cabin around 9 PM. It was a very rustic, two story, 4 bedroom, 2 bath cabin situated on a mountain side. It had a huge balcony that hung out over the side of the mountain and not another soul in sight. We got unpacked and settled of the greatest things about the cabin was the only television was a tiny one in the entire cabin and only rabbit ears...which made the reception nearly impossible.

The next day, it was a crisp, but sunny day and we went hiking down the mountain, up the other mountain...we made many great pictures of the scenery and each other. We found a small lake with a waterfall coming out of the side of the mountain...that was so romantic and beautiful.

When we woke up on Monday morning, it had begun to snow the night before and we ended up with a big snowfall. It was absolutely gorgeous....pure white snow as far as you could the trees, covering the ground...everything. I woke up to the sound of the snow sliding off the tin roof onto the made a loud crashing sound and Roger in my face with the camcorder. It was just the first of many, many times...I had a camera in my face with Roger on the other side of it:) Just after we woke up, owner's wife brought our breakfast to us around 9 AM, it was homemade breakfast danish, still hot and with freshly made strawberry smoothie. It was delicious. It snowed all day long and into the night. We had a big fire in the fire was was warm and toasty on the inside and snowing huge snowflakes on the outside. We turned on the floodlights outside and turned off the lights on the was beautiful. We turned the stereo on with the crackling was so romantic!!! Roger even had me go outside on the balcony, in my robe, feet just stuck in my shoes, stand in the snow, smiling and waving for the camera. That's my new husband...the shutter bug.

We enjoyed four days in our mountain cabin and as much as we missed our children....we didn't want to come home:) Life was simple and quiet in the mountains...but reality was we had three children waiting for us to come home plus we each had jobs and a new house....a new life for us was waiting for us to come home to.

These are a few pictures from our honeymoon trip. It was the greatest honeymoon!

Have a wonderfully blessed day!


  1. Hi Jennifer, Just catching up on your blog. You had quite a wonderful place to visit. I also read you met Lauri Ann. What fun that must have been. I did not realize you were in Arkansas. When I took my road trip in march I met Carla in Texas it was the same way. Like seeing an old friend. We spent the day in Hot springs. And that is on my list to go to again some day. I am in Lake of the Ozarks area of Missouri. So maybe some day we may meet to. Have a great week.
