Sugar Coated Weekend

There is a sugar coated mountain in Maine. Otherwise known as "Sugarloaf".
Located in the Carrabassett Valley of Western Maine, the "Loaf" is the setting of my brother and sister-in-law's new weekend home. We took a trip there last week to visit. A long drive from New Jersey, it's about 9 hours from home. It was so worth the drive! Once we arrived, the strong winds just about blew us in the door! I could not believe my eyes. What a spectacular place! The quality of the craftsmanship and the details in the design and interior left me speechless. I felt as if  I was in the setting of Country Living Magazine shoot. Perfection! The log interior is bright and light. With an outstanding view of the 'Loaf' from the great room windows, the mountain becomes a magnet from dawn to dusk. The trails were snow covered, but there was little snow compared to most New England winters. It made for hiking and exploring rather easy, and definitely enjoyable. Surrounded by our family and friends, we learned in a very short time that it's easy to fall in love with the 'Loaf'.
We celebrated Kim's Birthday, we chilled in the sunshine, we toasted with the kids, and we met and fell in love with the newest member of the clan, Miss Bailey. What a little pip she is! And, as if we needed to party some more, we were also lucky to be at the 1st New Years Eve bash! There was live music and dancing and bubbles in the air! There were fireworks on the mountain, and a dusting of snow to complete the festivities! The photos give a little sneak peek, and I woke up this morning looking for the Mountain!
A fabulous time was had by all. My Mom could only say..."WOW"!!
Happy New Year and I hope yours is sugar coated!
With love and hugs.
