Slow and Steady Wins the Race

With the warmer months approaching, our calendar has been filling up at a rapid pace.  Before we know it, the long lazy days of winter will be replaced with summer garden parties, barbeques and weekend retreats.  It’s as we’re gearing up for the season that we really begin to appreciate the luxury of operating at a slower pace, which is exactly the lifestyle a cabin should celebrate.  With this leisurely attitude in mind, we turn to Mr. Tortoise from Aesop’s Fables for inspiration.

  1. you know how it goes with blogging; one minute you are commenting on someone else's blog then you look and see someone they like and you go off and visit, then hours are lost and really did not find that special blog that resonates.
