Treehouse Getaway


I had the best time EVER at the Lofty Lookout Treehouse in Eureka Springs, Arkansas! Seriously, it was the most relaxing, most indulgent place I've stayed....ever. Part of the reason was that, being January, many of the restaurants and shops were closed for the winter season.


Don't get me wrong, we found some excellent places to eat some delicious food, but there wasn't much going on around town. We ended up in the treehouse, watching movies, reading books, watching the birds, and taking naps. It was just what we needed.

It was very cold while we were there, with a few inches of snow on the ground. But, I have to say that the floors in the treehouse were HEATED and I could walk around barefoot and be warm! We lit fires in the pretty fireplace and enjoyed getting away from the hustle and bustle of life.


I think going in the fall would be a wondrous time to go back! Up among the vibrant, colorful leaves on the trees in the fall would be the time to go. Ahhhh....another year, perhaps.


So as you read this, I will be at work, trying to catch up on a week's worth of work. Hopefully, I can get back into the swing of things, but it's not likely. Goodness, I've been off for three weeks straight and it will take a day or two to get back in the groove of insanity.



If I don't respond to all your comments, you will know that I just collapsed in bed early, okay? Am I whining? I promised to not pull out the cranky pants, so I better slap a smile on my face!



Yall have a great day!

  7. Getting back to reality totally allows you to pull out the cranky pants. Have a nice cup of coffee and go back to that special place, at least in your mind ;)

  19. Weird, I was outta town on a getaway last week, too and am suffering from unpacking my life.

    There WAS plenty to do in the bustling Valley of the Sun. Though it wasn't our anniversary, we did revisit our house of over 30 years ago! Sob. Lots of good memories.

    May we both return to normal soon!

    Blessings,

  25. Hi ladies! Thanks for all your sweet comments! Today was extremely tiring! I worked an hour later than usual and still didn't put much of a dent in all the piles of papers strewn about my desk. But, it will get done. :) I did pretty good not pulling out the cranky pants! lol
