Welcome to Kelli's Olympic Nest's tale of how we are creating a home we love through thrifty DIY projects, crafty ideas, and a willingness to get dirty. In between, there's the stories reminding us to also live the life you love.
Valentine's Day is fast approaching and, as usual, I feel unprepared. Full disclosure, I am really not a red -n- pink heart, candy kinda gal. Don't get me wrong. I like flowers and chocolate (especially the dark kind), but the idea of Valentine outfit(s), perfume, a Hallmark card, expensive dinner, staged romance...STRESSES me out!
I am a dog person. I will always be a dog person. They have so much to give. My dogs have been my partners in crime, my saviors--in ways I cannot count--and my friends. When I imagine what our family would have been like without them...I just can't.
I love summers on the Olympic Peninsula. I especially love Lake Crescent which is only 45 minutes from home. The last two summers she has been our go-to destination for a quick stay vacation at Log Cabin Resort.
One of the things I've always been drawn to is the beauty of nature. Growing up I often explored the back woods. My partners were our four-legged friends. I'd get lost looking at the trees or following the dear trails. When my day was rough, I'd seek the solitude of the woods. Peace blanketed me and my inner conflict was eased.
