San Francisco based designer and fellow blogger Scot Meacham Wood of The Adventures of Tartanscot has graciously invited us to his cabin this week. Well, not really, but we are extremely excited that Scot is sharing his ideal weekend hideaway with Bubble & Squeak. What makes this tartan clad gentleman's heart race with inspiration? Well, be quiet!...he's about to say something....

“Greetings y’all. Welcome. It seems as though we’re all leading such incredibly busy lives. Over-booked. Over-worked. Over-stressed. And we all need to find a place where our minds can go quiet. Whether it’s the site of fresh snowfall, the sound of the ocean, or the smell of a verdant forest - we all crave a place of retreat.
For me, I’ve always been a mountain person. I’d much rather spend the weekend in the remotest corner of Lake Tahoe, than in the finest hotel in Hawaii. It’s just the way that I’m wired. I was quite lucky as a young kid, growing up near Los Angeles, to have spent my summers at a camp near Big Bear Lake. Waking to see the sun rise over the mountains. Swimming everyday in the chilled waters of the lake. That is the genesis of the constant wanderlust to be under a secluded, star-filled sky in the woods.
So, please come and join me next to the roaring fire. I've even brought the marshmallows."
