visiting one of my happy places. The first place that popped into my mind is Walt Disney World.
Then I thought oh oh oh I rather be camping. Do I have to pick just one?

I long to go camping at Rock Point Provincial Park, Ontario, Canada. We already have some reservations for this summer! Can’t wait to help celebrate Ontario Parks 125th!! http://www.ontarioparks.com/op125
I love the magic of Disney because it gives me such scope for the imagination! I adore the detail and care that is put into creating a place of fun for families; for the young and young at heart. But I equally love the connection to nature. The total relaxation of camping.
“I go to nature to be soothed and healed, and to have my senses put in order.”

Yes. I’d rather be visiting Disney or camping! 🙂 What would you rather be doing right now?
One of our favourite places to visit in the Spring is Thunder Rocks within Allegany State Park, New York. The enormous weathered rocks always provide ‘scope for the imagination’.
We spent ages watching this group of siblings. They’re just so adorable that they’ve become almost a regular on my blog!
Some more adventurous than others. Several not sure if they wanted to leave the security they knew under the cabin.
While our annual trip is a few months away, this is the time of year that we start looking forward to it. Our trip to Allegany has always been a relaxing family time. A time full of late fireside nights and slow quiet mornings. Days filled with a wonderful mix of quiet and laughter and good food.
We always seem to plan our activities around what food we want to eat. Our favourite meal is grilled veggies and steak cooked over the camp fire. Which means, we need to be around the cabin all afternoon to get a fire with lots of hot coals. That day is usually filled with games and splashing in the near-by creek.
Days like this are definitely some of the good things in life! Good food, days full of family time all while surrounded by the trees, creek, and wildlife.
“I felt my lungs inflate with the onrush of scenery—air, mountains, trees, people. I thought, “This is what it is to be happy.”
― Sylvia Plath, The Bell Jar
What hygge moments are you looking forward to this year? I’d love to hear about them. Or perhaps you have a hygge moment from this month that you’d like to share?
See you next month for another piece of my Hygge Patchwork.
Hygge translates roughly to ‘cosiness’. “In essence, hygge means creating a warm atmosphere and enjoying the good things in life with good people. The warm glow of candlelight is hygge. Friends and family – that’s hygge too.” [source: visitdenmark.com/hygge]
Last Spring we enjoyed watching the baby groundhogs peeking out from the shadows under our cabin in Allegany State Park, New York.
