A Secret Barn

I took the long way into town this morning. I set off by driving down our dirt road and into the valley we look out upon. Winding through hills, past farms and pastures, I came upon this sweet old barn.

I love how the barn sits tucked away behind the orchard. It makes the barn all the more alluring.

After walking under the canopy of green to the end of the orchard row, I reached the barn. Standing there under the bright morning sun, I suddenly felt like I was someplace I shouldn't be - perhaps because, ahem, I was trespassing. So I didn't stay long.

Walking back to my car, my flip flops crunched through the dry summer grass while my head swirled with the magic of the barn. It made me feel like a kid again, having just discovered a secret new hide-out.

P.S. I've updated my blog template (hope you like it!). There have been a few kinks to sort out which have kept me busy but nevertheless, I'm excited about the new layout!


  1. Love ya for trespassing and taking these photos!! And I want that ladder-- so cool! Do you think anyone would notice if you put it on top of your car for me?!
    Can't wait to see the new template-- then you can teach me how to do it;)

  2. I found you through "for the love of a house" and have spent way too much time (in my hubby's opinion) reading every word and oohing and ahhing over the changes to your home.

    It's fabulous!!

    Have a great day!

  3. Cute story...reminds me of the only recurring dream I have is of being in someone else's house on the sly and being anxious that I don't get caught (a la Harriet the Spy). I like the new look!

    Hi Trina,

    You must pinch yourself daily. To live in such a place! That ladder is exquisite. I've gotten my girlfriend hooked on your blog. She says we need to move to Oregon.
    I agree.


  5. I have finally stopped to leave a comment - which I could have easily done on any of your previous posts as they are simply so FABULOUS! I found you through Melaine at My Sweet Savannah and truly, your blog is wonderful. I am thankful right now that I have such a hunky husband of my own because yours is so darn handsome!
    I would love to know what area of the Pacific Northwest you are in - we are just outside of Seattle. What a gorgeous setting and your home is stunning.
    Okay, enough gushing for now. I will be adding you to my blog roll~
    Happy New Year,


Thank you for leaving your thoughts. Kind regards, Catherine
