Treehouse. Babymoon. South Carolina. Games. Simplify. Love.
Rest. Reconnect. Dance parties. Magic.
These are the words that come to mind when I recount our babymoon last year in the most enchanting treehouse in the woods. I often remember this scene: waking up to the light pouring in through the two-story windows, watching birds get to work, and feeling oh-so-cozy by the heat of the fire.
It couldn’t get better.
But it did.
Right there, lying in the queen of all vintage beds, soaking in the feels of this magical place, I felt our tiny baby dance more than I ever had before.
It’s as though he was wanting to join in the dance parties we had had the previous night.
I soaked every bit of it up.
Even though kids technically aren’t allowed in the treehouse, I enjoyed sneaking him in. 😉
We played games like Shut the Box (which we have since added to our home game collection!),
enjoyed all of the finishing touches and attention to detail (like chocolate),
hid away from the cold weather (myself parked right in front of the heater 90% of the time), and felt the freedom to goof off (well, that’s him 100% of the time!).
We enjoyed old records spinning tunes for us, walks through the woods with friendly dogs, recalling old memories from our past, and dreaming about the future with this new child of ours.
Then we discovered the rope swing bed below.
Complete with a romantic banner and fluffy blankets, it was the perfect place to hide from the chilly winter air, finishing our scheming and dreaming.
This guy. My love. The guy who made me a mother.
I’m enjoying this throwback to our time at the treehouse, remembering those sweet days with my old and new loves. It’s not even a bittersweet feeling, it’s all excitement, BECAUSE WE’RE GOING BAAAACK!!! Next month to be exact. This was my Christmas present last year, and I can’t believe the time is already upon us. It’s not easy to secure a spot at this popular getaway (as you can see why!), and I’m feeling super lucky to go back. After devoting the last year to raising our boy, I’m looking forward to the time I’ll get to spend reconnecting with my love…
this time with coffee and wine. 😉
