So we wrapped up warm in our thick coats, roll neck jumpers and tall boots to make sure that Jack Frost didn’t get the better of us. Snow was meant to be coming so we didn’t want to risk freezing over for the rest of the day. Suitably suited and booted we left the comfort of our little lodge and headed outdoors.
With over 500 acre’s of woodland we were spoilt for choice and could head in any which way, it felt like the world was our oyster.
It was an opportunity for us to get out and about and get some fresh air in our lungs. There was long chats about both of our weeks with no distractions. We got to capture the golden hour sun on camera. We walked hand in hand to keep cosy in the sub minus temperatures.
I’ve said it a hundred times or more, I love being outdoors. I think it brings the best out of people when we’re not sat in front of a television, phone or computer screen. You can completely get lost in the company you are with and it just makes for a more intimate experience.
After walking and talking, and walking and talking some more (with a few photo stops along the way!) we headed to the woodshed for a hot drink and a little relaxation to rest our weary (and very cold) bones! We were met by another fire that was just ever so slightly going out so we stoked it back up and managed to get it roaring again.
I even managed to convince Mr C to play board games with me whilst we sipped our rich coffee. A welcome glug of something piping hot certainly warmed my cockles up.
At that moment I felt so much love. Love for my husband, love for the cosy weekend we were having and love for the escape from “the grind.”
It’s so easy to loose focus of the important things around you when juggling a career, trying to pay bills and keep up with friends and family and the devil that is social media. That sometimes taking a break from all that can re-affirm that there is so much more to life. I came away from that weekend begging my husband to build us a log cabin in the wood’s at the family farm because it just felt simple and easy. But not in a “easy to cut corners” kind of way, rather more in a “I think I can be the best version of myself when you leave me with the basics in life” kinda way.
(I’ll have to update you on my arm twisting soon!)
Còsagach is lifestyle trend that I’m going to embrace, with it’s akin to it’s Scandinavian counterparts and the embracing of the outdoors too, it is without a doubt a lifestyle trend that not only I can get on board with, it speaks to my little humble heart as well.
Have you heard about Còsagach? Do you think it’s just another fading fad or something you will adapt in to your life?
*Our stay with the North Star Club was provided to us free of charge, a full review of this magnificent place is coming soon.
I'm Bee. 27 year old who is finally starting to understand herself. A Scorpio that's too nice to use that sting in her tail, regularly found searching for holidays or online shopping. Happiest when being fed, travelling & spending time with Mr C.
