A Little Summer Lovin’

Though this year we have been spoiled with unusually warm weather, come January I long for the warmth and freedom of summer. Back in August I was able to spend time with my brother and his family at their cabin on Wequaquet Lake in Cape Cod, MA. Part of what makes New England so great  is how old fashioned and quaint it is, it’s one of the reasons I love it so much; this cabin was no exception. The simple, very wabi sabi homestead seamlessly blends utilitarian minimalism with quaint and home-y charm with its woven branch banisters, slanted roof-ceiling, cloth doors and handmade furniture. It boasts 3 exquisite porches, a sprawling yard for sports and campfires, a boat for fishing and tubing as well as countless other outdoor activities to keep everyone happy and busy. The cabin was built by my sister-in-law, Robin’s great grandparents in 1905. It was the first homestead on the lake and the original design of the home remains unchanged; even the rocks that create the fireplace came from the lake itself. My niece and nephews are the fifth generation of children to spend summers in this cabin; staying a few days there it felt like we had stepped back to a simpler time with no t.v, no internet, organic play and where family came first. I share my favorite images here, I hope they warm your heart as much as they do mine! You can see the series in it’s entirety in my Pura Vida! portfolio  :)
