The reindeer chalet

This weekend we went to 'les Ardennes' for some relax time, some Christmas spirit, some easy times in front of the fire, eating good food and enjoying friendship. The cabin we rented was just perfect for the purpose. All reindeers, a magnificent Christmas tree, beautiful interior, good beds and the perfect playground for the kid, who felt immediately at home there. It even snowed all Saturday (melting snow)- such a pretty picture. When I imagined this weekend, I always imagined it snowing. But as they always say: be careful what you wish for because the road to this cabin on Friday evening was already quite a challenge in heavy rain, so I was happy the sun was out on Sunday, so we could get home safely. It is good for the soul to sometimes get away from it all and go back to the simple things: watch the flames in the fire place, glance at the snow falling, enjoy a hot coffee with a cookie, prepare food with friends, take a nap, play undisturbed with our daughter. My love and I enjoyed some private sauna time in a barrel and then ran out in the snow. We visited the Christmas market in Durbuy and ate some tartiflette and Potatoes with foie gras. Back home we prepared a pre-Christmas dinner with Turkey, cranberry sauce, veggies and jacked potatoes. It was a good good weekend.
