I had early on the brain this weekend during our little mountain retreat. Weeding out what I wanted to share that fit the topic. For most people early on vacation means dreams and soft snores. Someday we may find that is the case for us as well. For now, our enthusiastic little clan takes full advantage of the early. And rightfully so, with small ones, early means fresh, chipper, crisp and a whole new outlook for the day. And if you are one of us or with us, it most likely means the sound of coffee brewing and being transferred to a travel mug while we map out which bakery will be our first stop for the day. Our favorite mountain get-a-way is a little lodge that offers up a lake with canoes, a pool and a short drive to two of our favorite donut and pastry makers in the Blueridge Mountains.
Early means a greeting by a glassy, still lake on your way to the car to round up up the mornings’ donuts and coffee. Yes with a travel mug in hand. While we may partake in early, it doesn’t come naturally or easy!
We hurry back to our little lodge to relax on our porch with said coffee & donuts to breathe in the fresh mountain air and local flora.
When the coffee and donuts is finally done and the hot summer sun has hit an early peak, we hea off to the pool to cool off, because this year, even in the mountains, the heat gets up early as well.
