One of my most favorite times of the year are the short two or three weeks we get here in the northwest where we transition from summer to fall. Where it's not quite summer and it's not quite fall yet (although today it is officially fall here!). It's still warm and dry enough to linger outside, but the hot sun has been covered by lower hanging clouds and a freshness in the air - it's perfect for an outside campfire or a long day of sitting by an open window reading books. This is also one of my favorite times to get out in nature, for all of those reasons, and because the mix of green with the golden tones of autumn is just so stunning. When I saw this sweet little house belonging to Alex Kennedy of Melbourne, I found that it pretty much matched the image I have in my head at times like these when I find myself daydreaming about having a little cabin retreat somewhere tucked away in nature.
